NEW DMU TRAINS FOR PNR IN 2019

Quote
PNR General Manager Junn B. Magno signs today a contract for the purchase of Two (2) Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DMU) amounting to Four Hundred Eighty Five Million Three Hundred Twelve Thousand Six Hundred Pesos (Php 485,312,600.00) with PT. Industri Kereta Api (Persero) “PT INKA” of Indonesia with its President Director Budi Noviantoro.

PNR now embarks another milestone in its 125 years of existence through the robust project of President Rodrigo and under the able leadership of Transportation Secretary Arthur P. Tugade and General Manager Junn Magno. This would be the first after so many years that PNR organically procure its own trains since most are donated cars and/or part of national loan packages.

The DMU project is funded from the 2015 DOTr-GAA funds which was downloaded to PNR and the project was approved by the PNR Board under the leadership of Chairman Roberto T. Lastimoso. It has undergone public bidding in compliance with Republic Act No. 9184 and its 2016 Revised Implementing Rules and Regulations. The project consist of design, manufacture, delivery, testing and commissioning of the DMU trains which is expected to be delivered in the Philippines  on Quarter 3 of 2019 for commissioning and testing.

...

The two new DMU trains is part of the Reliability and Availability Program of GM Magno which transcends beyond 2018. PNR was granted a budget by Congress through the General Appropriations Act of 2018 for acquisition of trains, thus PNR will have more new trains in 2019. GM Magno’s dream for PNR is to have more frequent and comfortable trips, new commuter lines and more reliable trains. The current fleet will also undergo rehabilitation to better serve PNR passengers. This signing of contract is a baby step towards achieving that goal.

PNR to acquire 7 train sets from Indonesia

May 30, 2018

Quote
PHILIPPINE National Railways (PNR) will purchase seven train sets worth more than P2 billion to improve its reliability and serve more passengers.

Under a contract signed with Indonesian government-owned PT Industri Kereta Api (PT INKA) at a Manila hotel late Monday, PNR will acquire four diesel multiple unit train sets worth $21.4 million (P1.13 billion) and three diesel hydraulic train sets worth $26 million (P1.37 billion).

These are expected to be delivered by December 2019.

According to PNR General Manager Junn Magno, who signed the contract with PT INKA President Budi Noviantoro, the reason diesel hydraulic sets were chosen is because these can run through floodwaters.

The PNR, he said, currently operates 11 sets with reliability issues that prevent them from sustaining frequency.

The PNR line, which runs from Tutuban in Manila to Mamatid village in Laguna province’s Cabuyao city, serves about 70,000 passengers daily.

Magno said the new train sets would be used in the Manila-South corridor, while the old ones would be rehabilitated.

“We’ll rehabilitate them in the next months. Perhaps, we could use them to start the Naga-Legazpi commuter service,” he added in Filipino.

The PNR also plans to open a cargo service between Tutuban and the Pier in mid-2019, the general manager said.

Two of the nine train sets purchased by the Philippines from Indonesia are expected to arrive in the country in the next few weeks, an official of the Department of Transportation said Wednesday.

Philippine National Railways (PNR) general manager Junn Magno said the two train sets will be delivered between end of August and first week of September.

“Ang inaantay lang namin iyong matapos iyong commissioning plus iyong weather kung makakadaan iyong barko at makakapag-unload kami sa pier; and then, the rest will be delivered in batches until December,” Magno said at a news conference in Malacañang.

The PNR earlier purchased nine new train sets from Indonesian state-owned company PT Industri Kereta Api (PT INKA) for around P2.9 billion. It was the first time in four decades that the PNR bought new trains through its own budget.

Sa ngayon, nakahimpil ang mga bagong rail car sa Surabaya Port sa Indonesia habang hinihintay ang carrier ship na siyang maghahatid ng mga bagon dito sa Pilipinas.

Mula sa nakatakdang departure date na November 30, inaasahang makakarating sa bansa ang 6 na bagon na siyang bubuo ng dalawang train sets (3 bagon kada isang train set), sa December 8 o 9.

Tatakbo ang mga ito sa linya ng PNR na may rutang Tutuban-FTI at Malabon-FTI.

Oras na sumalang ang mga bagong bagon sa linya, tinatayang 18 hanggang 20 biyahe kada araw ang madaragdag sa serbisyo ng PNR, at tiyak na makapagsisilbi ng mas maraming pasahero.

Sa kabuuan, mayroong 37 rail cars na in-order ang PNR mula sa Indonesia.

Mayroon pang natitirang 31 bagon na ide-deliver simula Disyembre 2019 hanggang Pebrero 2020. Bubuo ang mga ito ng karagdagang 7 train sets na mayroong 4-car at 5-car configuration.

Isinasagawa ang pagpapaunlad sa mga pasilidad at serbisyo ng PNR sa pangunguna ni PNR General Manager Junn Magno, at sa paggabay ni DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade.

Witness as PNR shows to the public the Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) class, 8000 series wearing officially the new PNR livery.

The trains were procured through competitive public bidding and was manufactured by PT INKA Persero of Indonesia, among the state owned enterprises of The Republic of Indonesia.

This project has a contract duration of 24 months but it was delivered ahead of its schedule. The train was tested and commissioned in Indonesia with at least 2000 kilometers run and tested its maximum speed of 100km/h. The new trainsets arrived in the port of Manila on December 8, 2019 at about 2300H and was unloaded on December 9-10, 2019. On December 11, 2019 the new PNR train was unveiled to the public.

These additional fleet is expected to increase capacity by 14,000 passengers per day from Malabon to FTI and Tutuban to FTI.

These new trains are the manifestation of a decision that was made 2 years ago and the implementation of the strategy and transport policy. It is a milestone for PNR and a manifestation of a strong leadership of GM Junn Magno, the PNR Board, Secretary Arthur Tugade and President Rodrigo Duterte and the ardent support given to PNR by its development partners in the Legislative and Executive branches of the government since the PNR was able to procure trains from General Appropriations Act (GAA).

These trains are the first of the 3 classes of trains of PNR from Indonesia. On 2020, more trains will arrive to complete the 37 coaches and 3 locomotives. PNR expects to carry an estimated of 100,000-140,000 passengers per day and extend its coverage to be able to be of service to more passengers at an economically viable cost.
