Per the client's request, recording equipment has been added to the driver’s cabin.

This week, the Polish state-owned carrier PKP Intercity has taken over the first six CZ LOKO EffiShunter 300 locomotives of a series of ten. The rest will be taken over in spring 2023. This is the largest order in Poland in recent years for CZ LOKO.

PKP Intercity, a long-distance passenger transport operator, will use the two-axle locomotives mainly for light shunting in depots and layover stations. Of the first six, four locomotives were delivered to Warsaw and two to Kraków. The remaining four are meant for Gdańsk and Katowice. Metro Warszawskie uses the same type of locomotive for shunting.

The EffiShunter 300 is equipped with a CAT C13 internal combustion engine with an output of 328 kW that meets the strictest EU STAGE V emission standards. Per the client’s special request, a camera system, automatic coupling devices, and recording equipment to the driver’s cabin have been added. For operation in Poland, it is also equipped with the SHP national signaling system. Other equipment includes a digital control system, multiple control, an antiskid device, and remote monitoring. The manufacturer’s smallest locomotive has been released to service in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Serbia.
