POLAND: The European Investment Bank has signed two loan agreements for tram projects in Poland.
Bank Pekao is to receive 231m złoty, which it will lend to Tramwaje Śląskie. This will be used for the modernisation of the power supplies and 63 km of track, as well as the purchase of 42 trams. Of these, 30 Pesa Twist 100% low-floor trams were delivered in 2013-14 after TS placed an order in 2012, and the remaining 12 partly low-floor trams are being supplied by Modertrans. A further 95 trams are to be modernised.
A separate 92m złoty loan to MPK Kraków covers the purchase of 36 Krakowiak trams from Pesa. The first of these was delivered in June after a contract was signed in July 2014. The 42·8 m long tram is the longest in Poland.
