The first locomotive of the American company General Electric arrived in Chornomorsk port, as Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways, - ed.) reported on Facebook.
“At these moments we are meeting “Trident” in Ukraine! First General Electric locomotive arrives in Chornomorsk port. Tomorrow morning we will reload the locomotive on the railway tracks,” the message says.
As Volodymyr Groysman, Ukraine’s Prime Minister, stated, first General Electric locomotives will be put into operation in Ukraine in autumn.
Earlier, in February 2018 a framework agreement worth $1 billion was signed. The agreement provides a 15-year cooperation between Ukrzaliznytsia and General Electric in terms of renovation and modernization of the traction rolling-stock.
