The company has leased out three brand-new freight locomotives manufactured by the Polish Newag, which will be chiefly used to carry dry bulk goods on the routes connecting southwest Poland with OT's sea terminals in Gdynia and Świnoujście.
Each 5 MW of power Dragon is able to pull a 40 wagon-long and 3.0kt gross-heavy train set at a speed of 120 km/hr.
The lease deal also covers maintenance. According to the producer, Dragons' technical reliability stands at 98%.
In addition, in years 2019-2022, STK plans to add diesel-electric Dragons to its fleet to take care on its own of shipments across parts of the rail network that aren't electrified.
