ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS OF GREDELJ AND NRE
Delivery of two locomotives for Tanzania and Zambia
Zagreb, October 30, 2018. – Today, Gredelj Rolling Stock Factory LLC under bankruptcy proceedings and its American partner National Railway Equipment Company (NRE) transported to the port of Rijeka the first of the two locomotives for Tanzania and Zambia.
Over the port of Rijeka, the locomotives will be delivered to the end customer – Tazara company (TANZANIA-ZAMBIA RAILWAY AUTHORITY). Delivering locomotives to these countries has created a good basis for continuation of the delivery of locomotives as well as for opening of new markets on the African continent. The locomotives were produced in Gredelj’s facilities, with the delivery of drive components by the US partner company NRE, and the project was carried out i.e. realized according to the joint documentation of Gredelj and NRE.
Gredelj’s cooperation with this US company has so far resulted in the production and delivery of altogether 83 (eighty three) locomotives, and currently there are another three locomotives of the same series being produced in Gredelj’s plants. All the locomotives were delivered to foreign markets, i.e. to South America, Africa and Asia.
By the end of this month, Gredelj and NRE should sign a contract for another 8 (eight) locomotives, which confirms NRE’s interest for continued production of locomotives in Croatia.
In addition to this project, the cooperation of the American NRE company and Rolling Stock Factory Gredelj LLC under bankruptcy proceedings was also continued by the project of delivery of equipment and documentation for modernization of a total of 12 (twelve) locomotives for Slovenia.
