In a contract signed on the 28 November 2014, the Masovian rail operator agreed the order of twelve IMPULS 45WE electric multiple units from Newag at a cost of Zlotys 257m.

The new trains will operate in the Masovian region of Poland between Warsaw and Skierniewice at speeds of up to 160 km/h. Each train consists of five cars and can accommodate 206 seated passengers and 325 standing. The trains are equipped with Wi-Fi access, power sockets, passenger information system and intercom.

Adam Stru­zik, Mar­shal of Mazo­wiec­kie Province commented on the delivery “Koleje Mazo­wiec­kie have always cared for their pas­sen­gers and still do eve­ry­thing to ensure the highest stan­dard of travel­ling. The new tra­ins are the first five-car vehic­les in Poland. Besi­des, they are modern and equip­ped with all ame­ni­ties for pas­sen­gers. It is nice to see that the Com­pany – Koleje Mazo­wiec­kie are deve­lo­ping. I expect pas­sen­gers will also appre­ciate it.”

Cze­sław Sulima, mem­ber of the Mana­ge­ment Board and Ope­ra­tions Direc­tor of Koleje Mazowieckie, added: “The pur­chase of the elec­tric mul­ti­ple units is a key con­tract for us due to always incre­asing passengers’ needs, in par­ti­cu­lar on high traf­fic routes like the route from War­szawa to Skier­nie­wice. Our Company’s mis­sion is to pro­vide high stan­dard rail trans­por­ta­tion. I believe that this pur­chase pro­ves that Koleje Mazo­wiec­kie con­si­sten­tly implements this mis­sion and the quality of their services is incre­asing all the time. I would like to point out that this is not the only big pur­chase: New double-decker cars will join our train fleet in a few mon­ths’ time.”
