Ukrzaliznytsia plans to use the new rolling stock for the Melitopol, Mykolaiv and Mariupol routes. In particular, 10 new locomotives will service the Mykolaiv route until the electrification of the Dolynska-Mykolaiv railroad section is completed. "Another five locomotives are to be used at the Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi-Izmail section," the press service added. As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrzaliznytsia signed a framework agreement with General Electric on the supply of up to 225 locomotives worth US$1 billion to Ukraine. Under the contract, the local content share is set up to 40%. At the first stage of the deal, 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 the local content share being 10%. On November 8, Ukrzaliznytsia tested the first General Electric diesel locomotive in a freight train at the Kremenchuk-Romodan railroad section. Ukrzaliznytsia will pay $4.68 million per GE locomotive of the first batch.
