REUTERS Ukraine expects to put the first TE33A diesel locomotives developed by General Electric Transportation Systems, which will be produced and manned for JSC Ukrzaliznytsia, into operation as early as this year&#39;s fall. "In fall, Ukraine expects to put into operation the first locomotives that will be produced and manned for Ukrzaliznytsia under a cooperative agreement with the American giant General Electric," the press service of the government said with reference to Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman. At the same time, he said Ukraine had lost much of its rolling stock that has been left behind in the temporarily occupied territories. As UNIAN reported earlier, the state-run Ukrzaliznytsia signed a framework deal with General Electric on the supply to Ukrzaliznytsia about 225 locomotives worth US$1 billion, with the localization of the production process in Ukraine at 40%. As part of the first stage of the agreement, a purchase and sale contract was signed between General Electric and Ukreximbank for the delivery of 30 GE TE33AC diesel locomotives late in 2018 and early in 2019 with a localization level of 10%. Ukrzaliznytsia will purchase 30 locomotives from General Electric for $4.68 million per unit.
