Pesa Bydgoszcz wants to expand its offer with high-speed trains up to 250+ km/h. From time to time the manufacturer discloses the details of the work on the project. This time, Pesa showed the concept of a train, tentatively called “Premium”, informs Railway Supply magazine, citing Nakolei.

As part of the CPK project, a high-speed rail network will be built in Poland. In addition to the construction of infrastructure, new rolling stock will be required, i.e. high-speed trains that will accelerate to at least 250 km/h. Pesa Bydgoszcz has long seen this project as an opportunity to create a Polish high-speed train.

Already in 2019, at the Trako exhibition in Gdansk, the president of Pesa, Krzysztof Sędzikowski, stated that the Bydgoszcz manufacturer could build its own high-speed train, but it would take time to do so. There is also the possibility of creating a consortium.

Cargo transportation volumes increased by 5% in August

In later years, Pesa revealed where it is now. In June 2021, during the Congress for the Development of Transport, Krzysztof Zdziarski, President of Pesa Bydgoszcz, announced that testing of running systems is being carried out at speeds above 300 km/h.

In April 2022, President Zdziarski announced that the first set of 300 km/h bogies would soon be built and could pass physical tests.

And so, in September, at the InnoTrans exhibition in Berlin, Pesa Bydgoszcz showed the first visualizations of its HSR vehicle. As Maciej Grzeszkowiak, Director of Strategic Projects and Communications at Pesa, points out, the visualizations presented are the direction our team is guided by when creating the final design of the train.
