Only eco power for e-locomotives
Railfreight provider Hector Rail has signed an agreement to use only eco power for its electric locomotives. Essentially, they will run on water, as they will be powered exclusively by electricity generated from hydro energy.
With the increased use of digital solutions and smart processes, the switch to eco power is the next logical step in the company's development, Hector Rail said. The 'wir sind grün’ ('we are green') slogan on the electric locomotives underlines this strategy.
Owner Ancala Partners recently secured additional funding for further developments, so Hector-Rail is likely launch more green initiatives in the future.
