On 28 February, as the outcome of court mediation, Lotos Kolej Sp. z o.o. reached a settlement with Newag S.A. covering the supply and servicing of two Griffin locomotives and three Dragon 2 locomotives.
The Dragon 2 is the first vehicle of its type in Poland with a drive using silicon carbide, thanks to which smaller dimensions and mass of the locomotives, noise reduction and significant limitation of energy losses were achieved.

The locomotives will be supplied in performance of the settlement, which satisfies both parties’ claims in a court case concerning a contract worth over PLN 56 million of December 2015 for the lease of five Griffin locomotives. Newag built them in 2017, but at the time Lotos Kolej refused to take receipt of them on the grounds that the locomotives were not allowed to use the main PKP PLK railway routes, as they were not equipped with the required ETCS system used to management rail traffic.

DZP’s support for Lotos Kolej covered advice and representation of the company in court and mediation proceedings which ended in the settlement being signed. The company’s attorneys were Paweł Paradowski, Partner, and Krzysztof Stecyk, Senior Associate, from the Dispute Resolution Practice, with the support of Tomasz Zielenkiewicz, Senior Associate in the Infrastructure & Energy Practice.
