ArcelorMittal and CZ Loko signed a contract for the supply of four EffiShunter 1600 locomotives which will operate at Krivoy Rog plant situated in western Ukraine.
The new locomotives will be delivered in the second half of 2020 and the direct financing will be provided by OPT Leasing Ukraine.
“The signing of the contract for the delivery of EffiShunter 1600 locomotives is a direct business success of CZ Loko. Given the need for modernization and diversification, we feel immense potential on the Ukrainian market,” said Ľubomír Dlábik, head of the sales team of CZ Loko.
This is CZ Loko’s second contract in Ukraine. in 2007, the manufacturer, in cooperation with the repair plant in Poltava, has modernised the ČME3P-1744 locomotive operated by Ukrainian Railways. It was also the very first broad-gauge locomotive ever modernized by CZ Loko.
