POLAND: Municipal operator MZK Torun has selected Pesa for a contract to supply 12 metre-gauge trams by October 2015.

The 92·5m złoty order covers six three-section and six five-section low-floor Swing trams, as well as spare parts, maintenance equipment and depot modifications to provide access to roof-mounted equipment.

A slightly lower bid submitted by Solaris was rejected for unspecified reasons.

  • A detailed profile of Pesa appeared in the May 2013 issue of Railway Gazette International, which subscribers can access in the digital archive.
