Hybrid power to transport building materials
BBL Logistik has signed a long-term full-service leasing contract with European Loc Pool (ELP) for a third Euro Dual locomotive. The German railfreight company operates locomotives on various rail routes, including electrified and non-electrified lines.
The Euro Dual locomotive manufactured by Stadler-Rail suits BBL's operating procedures since it may be used for electrified and non-electrified lines as well as last-mile and shunting operations.
BBL will deploy the new locomotives to transport construction materials such as rails, ballast and other materials. The company took delivery of the first Euro Dual locomotive in December 2022. (ben)
