Two locos for cross-border traffic
Lokomotion is continuing to expand its cross-border services and leasing two Euro9000 locomotives from European Loc Pool (ELP). They will probably enter service in Q4/2023.
The Euro9000 is Stadler Rail Valencia’s newest locomotive and currently the strongest unit available in the European market. With its 500kN tractive force, 9MW electrical power and 2 x 950kW diesel power, it carries the heaviest cargoes on electrified and non-electrified lines, and this with only a 20 t axle load.
Initially, the Euro9000 will be deployed in the so-called ‘Dachinlb’ corridor, which comprises Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium. (ben)
