PKP Intercity has also received the first two upgraded universal diesel locomotives of the new SU4220 series, based on upgrades to the classic SM42 series diesel locomotives. The vehicles have two modern internal combustion engines that meet the Stage emission standard. The new solution with which the locomotives got equipped is a microprocessor control system, which improves the traction characteristics of the vehicles and at the same time enables a reduction in fuel consumption. The upgrade has increased the operational safety and reliability of the locomotives. By the end of this year, the Poznan-based manufacturer will deliver 13 of these locomotives.
