Locomotive cuts emissions by up to 30%

Canadian National Railways (CN) is purchasing its first 100% battery heavy-haul locomotive. It is therefore partnering with Wabtec to induct its next-generation FLX drive technology, which can decrease fuel consumption and emissions by up to 30%.


The anticipated efficiencies and emission reductions from the technology will be significant and help open the door to new alternatives beyond the diesel-powered locomotives used today.


CN is already the most fuel-efficient railway in North America, using 15% less locomotive fuel per gross tonne mile than the industry average, the company said. The railway is one of only three Canadian companies listed on CDP’s prestigious climate A List. (ben)
