Stadler supplies further energy-efficient hybrid locomotives for European freight corridors


Stadler has signed a contract with the European Loc Pool (ELP) for ten more six-axle hybrid locomotives. This  order illustrates ELP’s commitment  to expanding its fleet, consolidating its  leading position in the leasing of hybrid locomotives.
Iñigo Parra, CEO of Stadler Valencia, and Willem Goosen, CEO of the European Loc Pool, have signed a contract for the construction and delivery of ten Co'Co' hybrid locomotives. This purchase is part of a framework agreement for a total of 100 locomotives. The framework agreement, which does not specify a minimum order, means that ELP can request additional locomotives.  

Characteristics of the locomotives 
The Stadler locomotives for ELP boasts a power range of 2.8 MW in diesel-electric operation and up to 6.15 MW in electric catenary operation, as well as an outstanding tractive effort thanks to six powered axles. On many European freight corridors, a single Co'Co' hybrid locomotive will replace two Bo’Bo’ locomotives at constant train weight, significantly cutting the cost base for freight rail operators. The innovative bogie technology helps minimise wear and tear to the track infrastructure, reducing track access costs. The hybrid locomotives can be operated on electrified and non-electrified lines. Switching from electrical catenary power supply to diesel or vice-versa is possible when a locomotive is moving. The hybrid locomotives are configured to German measures (15 kV + 25 kV AC and 1 x 2.8 MW diesel engine) and feature ETCS and a radio remote control. 
Iñigo Parra says: «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.»
