[PL] CTL Logistics plans on purchasing six new electric locomotives

CTL Logistics wants to purchase six new electric locomotives for 3kV DC catenary systems. The rail operator wants to use the new machines for its freight services. A minimal top speed of 120 km/u is required and the new locomotives need to be TSI compliant. 

Manufacturers that are interested can hand in a preliminary bid until 19.01.2018. Then a first round of negotiations will start. CTL Logistics only accepts bids from companies that have delivered one new locomotive in the past three years.
