Stadler has confirmed that it has signed a contract with PORTREN SA to supply 7 freight locomotives for use in Uruguay – the first order for Stadler in the country.
The locomotives will be used for the Finnish biotech business, UPM, in their new factory.
Seven EURO4001 diesel-electric locomotives will be constructed by Stadler, and deliveries are expected at the end of 2022.
The locomotives will be designed and manufactured at Stadler’s plant in Valencia, Spain.
Iñigo Parra, CEO of Stadler Valencia, commented: “Thanks to this cutting-edge technology, locomotive rail operators will be able to secure sustainable and profitable rail freight services. Drivers will enjoy a comfortable working environment and lineside neighbours will appreciate the reduced noise and emission levels. We are convinced that our vehicles will contribute to promoting rail transport in Uruguay, as we are already seeing in other South American countries.”
