ENAG – First hybrid Locomotive
ENAG has designed, manufactured and commissioned a battery powered traction system for a rail tractor. This system allows a diesel locomotive to run on electricity, supplied by the batteries, in areas where the lines are not electrified.
This system is used by a private operator as a work yard train and is the ideal replacement for use in tunnels where the pollution and noise of a diesel motor is not recommended. Here the electric system takes over! This solution is also useful for night work in urban areas or stations
With commissioning finishing in January 2018, this hybrid locomotive will be a first in France
