DB Regio selected for Rhein-Neckar operating contract
European Loc Pool (ELP) has placed an order of ten six-axle hybrid locomotives with Stadler.
The latest contract, which includes an order of ten Co’Co’ hybrid locomotives, is part of a framework agreement for a total of 100 units.
The addition of the energy-efficient vehicles will expand ELP’s fleet and bolster its position in leasing hybrid locomotives.
Stadler Valencia CEO Iñigo Parra said: “We are proud that ELP has selected us as the manufacturer of the new hybrid locomotives.
“This order underscores Stadler’s commitment to environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient transport services on European freight corridors.”
As the agreement does not stipulate a minimum order, ELP can place a request for additional locomotives.
The hybrid locomotives to be supplied have a power range of 2.8MW in diesel-electric operation and up to 6.15MW in electric catenary operation. They can switch between electric power to diesel on the go.
Additionally, these vehicles minimise wear and tear to the track infrastructure, thereby reducing their maintenance costs.
Configured to German measures (15kV + 25kV AC and 1 x 2.8MW diesel engine), the locomotives feature ETCS and a radio remote control.
Headquartered in Bussnang in eastern Switzerland, Stadler manufactures various forms of rolling stock, including high-speed trains, heavy rail trains, underground trains, locomotives and trams.
Established in 1942, the company has more than 40 service locations.
Recently, Stadler opened a train manufacturing site in the US at Salt Lake City, Utah. Involving an investment of around $50m, the site was completed in around 18 months.
