“We are delighted to help SNCF move towards an environmentally friendly and efficient way of maneuvering in its train depots. ES1000 is the optimal solution for railway maneuvers in depots and other enterprises”, said Tsvetelin Kolev, head of the Express Service OOD project, to Railway Supply magazine.

MDD5 is the most environmentally friendly shunting locomotive in Europe!

As a reminder, earlier the Bulgarian manufacturer demonstrated the first video review of the new MDD5 diesel shunting locomotive. The largest and most powerful MDD5 shunting locomotive was developed, designed and manufactured at the locomotive plant in Ruse.
