Battery locomotive ES3000 is already in Razgrad!
Shunting works at the ADM Razgrad plant are carried out in a quality and environmentally friendly way using the ES3000 battery locomotive.
A Bulgarian locomotive manufacturer has delivered an ES3000 locomotive to ADM Razgrad (Bulgaria), Railway Supply magazine informs, citing Express Service OOD.
The locomotive has zero emissions, which helps the plant reduce its overall carbon footprint.
Rail maneuvers at the plant are performed by just one person, due to intuitive remote control.
Battery traction offers very economic, clean and safe shunting. That’s why Express Service developed several series of battery-powered rail locomotives.
Battery shunters have extremely low operation costs and are virtually maintenance free. They have numerous advantages over the diesel locos.
Battery shunting locomotives are the best-selling products of Express Service.
Through cooperation with its main customer – Hegenscheidt MFD from Germany – Bulgarian shunters are exported to many different locations in the whole world.
Of course, all shunters are safety integrated with UWL machines of Hegenscheidt.
Apart from wheel lathes applications these shunters are mainly used
Due to the relatively low design speed, ES vehicles offer great starting tractive effort.
Thus, it is not a surprise that shunting capacity of the different models is up to 4000 tons.
Based on the success of ES200, 400, 600, and 1000 series, Express Service has designed several types of special battery vehicles.
A three-axle light shunter, extra heavy battery shunter, work vehicle with crane and platform – all these are based on the proven design of ES shunters.
At its heavy-duty version ES3000 could weight up to 50 tons and shunt up to 4000 tons train at low service speeds.
