Pojazdy Szynowe PESA Holding is unveiling the PARTNER in the time, when possibility to help with so needed financing of regional rail transport by financial support of regions („wojwodstwo“) are discussed. Beacuse single motor coaches are quite rare in Poland, the PARTNER design brings a real break-through.
The unit is built on underframe of passenger coach type 102, on which steel body and laminate-plastic faces are mounted. The new vehicle is 30 % low-floor. For undercarriage, two Jenbach-licence built two-axle pneumatically springed bogies are used. Base technical data: max. speed 120 km/h, power 480 kW, length over buffers 24,5 m, weight of empty car 42 t, max. weight per axle 14 t. At the present, the prototype unit is under commisioning.
