In August 2013, the Ukrainian railways (UZ) closed a deal with Premier Leasing for financing 350 new electric freight locomotives. The deal included three different types:
- 50 3kV DC twin-section 2ES10 series electrics built by Ural Locomotives (Siemens + Sinara)
- 230 3kV DC 2ES4k series electrics from Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Plant (NVEZ)
- 70 25kV AC electrics type 2EL5 from Luganskteplovoz, the Ukrainian subsidiary of Transmashholding
