EGYPTIAN National Railways (ENR) has awarded Wabtec a contract to supply 100 ES30ACi Evolution Series locomotives, along with a multi-year service agreement. The contract is funded by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
The 140km/h, 135-tonne six-axle locomotives will be delivered to ENR in 2023 and will be fitted with a 12-cylinder 2.4MW Evolution Series engine, ac traction technology, individual axle control and dynamic brakes.
ENR has ordered the locomotives to support the continued modernisation of Egypt’s railway network.
“This order underscores the commitment by the Ministry of Transportation and ENR to provide a world-class passenger service,” says Mr Gökhan Bayhan, Wabtec senior vice president for Russia/CIS, Europe, Middle East and North Africa.
Following the completion of the order there will be more than 300 Wabtec-built units in the ENR fleet.
