In the late 1960s, the RGW (Council for Mutual Economic Assistance) decided to focus on the construction of large diesel locomotives in Romania and the Soviet Union. Geared towards the needs of the DR, the "Voroshilovgrad locomotive factory" introduced a longer, faster and more efficient diesel locomotive in 1970 and named it series 130. The serial production of the machine was then started in 1973. When the gear ratio of the locomotive was being modified, the series 130 became a true goods locomotive and was later put into operation as series 131.
The series 132 contruction was based on previous experiences with the series 130 and 131. The entire frame and housing design had been revised, as this was the only way to create space for the electric train heating system. The locomotive reached a maximum speed of 120kmh and had a power output of 2200kW.
