After a 26-year break, BDZ bought 10 new locomotives. Moreover, they are smart by category and the latest generation of Siemens. A few weeks ago, two arrived in Bulgaria, the first of which is called “Khan Asparuh”. The idea is for all of them to bear the name of Bulgarian rulers. Prior to their arrival, Bulgarian State Railways provided people with the opportunity to choose the concept for their vision. A poll with 4 possible designs was created and Greenforce won the race by 33.75%. The new and modern locomotive was attached to the Sofia-Varna composition.
After the end of the voting, the smart locomotives were wrapped according to the chosen design with 3M Printable Wrap Films for cars
– cast film for printing 3M IJ180-mC-10 and anti-graffiti laminate 3M 8993. The executor of this large and precise project is Nikolay Alexiev from Fox Advertising Agency Print Ltd. The advertising agency preferred the high-quality and innovative advertising materials of the American company 3M, of which Partners Ltd. is an authorized distributor.
3M IJ180-mC-10 is a cast film with special adhesive layer technologies. The Comply system consists of thousands of tiny channels forming a grid through which air is removed from the surface. With Controltac technology, thanks to the millions of scattered glass microspheres in the adhesive layer, the initial contact of the foil with the surface is limited. This in turn allows multiple repositioning of the film during application.
The final result is stylish and presentable. The wrapped locomotives will delight the passengers and employees of BDZ for years to come. The remaining 8 locomotives are expected to be delivered by the end of May 2021.
Once again I thank Partners for the professionalism and the high quality products, with which I can guarantee my clients durable and lasting installations.
