The locomotives must be equipped with ETCS and compatible with the Czech Mirel safety system. The tender also stipulates that the lessor must have supplied at least 10 locomotives within the last three years, for a minimum value of €3m. Bids must be submitted by October 1.
The tender comes after ČD launched a tender in July for 40 200km/h electric multi-voltage locomotives for operation in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Austria and Germany, with options for up to 50 additional locomotives, along with 10 years’ maintenance.
Facing an ageing locomotive fleet, ČD has strongly prioritised the renewal of its traction fleet and long-distance passenger coaches. This includes ordering new 200km/h coaches from a Skoda Transportation – Siemens joint venture for €115m.
It is now focusing on replacing its ageing electric locomotives, such as the series 150/151 and 242 vehicles.
