The new hybrid trains will be put into passenger service in the second half of 2024.

According to the contract, Newag will deliver the first two trains within 16 months from the signing of the contract, and the remaining trains within 17 months.

The agreement was signed on May 15, 2023, by Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Mechtislav Struk, Deputy Marshal Leszek Bonna, and President of Newag, Zbigniew Konczak.
