CZ LOKO has been significantly successful in the Turkish market in recent months, when it succeeded in the tender process for the supply of shunting locomotives for the Isdemir steel plant. Based on a signed contract, six EffiShunter 600 locomotives will be produced next year.

CZ LOKO will thus follow up on the supply of 744.704 – L18 and 744.705 – L19 Diesel locomotives that were received last year by the Erdemir steel plant, which, like Isdemir, belongs to the OYAK holding.Show more
