IT IS ABLE TO OPERATE ON STANDARD GAUGE AND/OR IBERIAN GAUGE LINES UNDER THREE DIFFERENT OVERHEAD VOLTAGES, 1.5KV DC, 3KV DC AND 25KV AC.
Achieving a rail freight share of 30% by 2030 is one of the key measures proposed in the European Green Deal for the decarbonisation of the transport sector, but this will only be achieved by increasing the competitiveness of rail freight services.
Following Stadler’s commitment to providing sustainable and cost-effective solutions for rail transport, the EURO6000 locomotive has been designed to improve rail freight transport, within Spain and on its cross-border connections, efficiently and competitively. Designed and manufactured entirely at its Valencian plant, they belong to the new generation of 6-axle EURO locomotives from Stadler that are operating with great success in other countries such as France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Norway and Sweden. Soon they will also be operating in Spain.
The EURO6000 locomotives feature a compact design, lightweight monocoque structure, AC traction system with IGBTs as well as a state-of-the-art adhesion control system. They are powerful three-system electric locomotives (1.5 kV DC, 3 kV DC and 25 kV AC) with a higher hauling capability than other locomotives on the market, making it possible to transport longer and heavier trains.
ITS HIGH PERFORMANCE ALLOWS THE TRANSPORT OF LONGER AND HEAVIER TRAINS
With a power greater than 6 MW and a tractive effort of up to 500 kN, it reaches speeds of up to 120 km/h. Its design is based on commercially proven components and subsystems and on a high degree of redundancy, increasing its reliability and availability. In addition, the ergonomic design of its two driver’s cabs offers excellent comfort, safety and visibility for the drivers.
The latest bogie technology results in lower wear and tear on the infrastructure and reduced track access costs. The locomotive is suitable for operations on standard gauge (1435 mm) and/or Iberian gauge (1668 mm) lines. Its universal bogie allows for easy axle changes in the workshop.
With state-of-the-art technology that exceeds TSI requirements, this vehicle offers high load capacity, low energy consumption and reduced operating costs.
