On Thursday, the Incofer published a series of images showing the units loaded onto a cargo ship, Guang An Cheng, making their way to Costa Rica from China.

The first batch of equipment purchased from the manufacturer CRRC Sifang left the port of Qingdao, China on November 8 and was scheduled to arrive in Costa Rica in the first days of this month.

They are expected to go into operation during the first quarter of 2021.

This first batch is made up of 4 DMUs. Meanwhile, the second batch (also made up of 4DMUs) is expected to leave China this month.

The initial plan was for the first units to arrive in the country in September, but the impacts caused by the COVID-19 coronavirus resulted in a delay of 2 months.
