Stadler supplies further locomotives to European Loc Pool


Stadler has signed a contract with the European Loc Pool (ELP) for ten more six-axle locomotives. It is the second order that ELP has received, following the announcement on 20 May 2019 about the frame contract. The electric locomotives will be in multi-system configuration and have a power of 9 MW. The order of a TSI-compliant 9 MW power locomotive is a landmark event in the European market – ELP is Stadler’s first customer for this type of locomotive.
European Loc Pool and Stadler have signed a contract for the construction and delivery of ten electrical Co'Co' locomotives. This purchase is part of the framework agreement for a total of 100 locomotives, announced on 20 May 2019.  
The six-axle locomotives has been ordered in multi-system configuration for Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy (15 kV + 25 kV AC and 1.5 kV + 3 kV DC). If required, they can be equipped with one or two additional 900 kW diesel engines, and all of them have ETCS and radio remote control as standard features. Thanks to a Co’Co’ axle configuration and output range of 9 MW, ELP locomotives are characterised by outstanding tractive effort. On many EU freight corridors, a single Co’Co’-hybrid locomotive can replace two Bo’Bo’ locomotives for the same train weight. This will substantially reduce the cost base for freight rail operators and minimise wear and tear to the track infrastructure. Sophisticated bogie technology will cut track access costs.  
Together with the hybrid locomotives on order, the ELP fleet now comprises 30 locomotives, all of which meet the latest technological requirements and can be used on both electrified and non-electrified tracks. When they are moving, they are able to switch from the electric traction to diesel traction, in hybrid configuration. ELP is the first Stadler customer ordering this type of locomotive and it is also the first time in Europe that a TSI-compliant 9 MW power locomotive has ever been purchased.
