Innovative and efficient engineering
Hybrid locomotives combine the benefits of diesel engines with battery-power, minimising fuel costs and emissions.
Hybrid technology involves reducing the generator within a locomotive and installing clean, noise-reducing battery packs, achievable in most vehicle sizes. A complete hybrid electric replacement is at a fraction of the cost to purchasing entire replacement vehicles.
Combined technologies look at how each of the separate new technologies within a vehicle complements the next, working to reduce emissions and improve the lifespan of locomotives.
With a transformative approach, the right combination of technology can significantly shrink the cost of rail, delivering long-term solutions with a fast return on investment.
