Express Service battery-electric shunters

Battery traction offers very economic, clean and safe shunting. That’s why Express Service developed several series of battery-powered rail locomotives.

Express Service is the Eastern European leader in offering new shunting locomotives.

Battery shunting locomotives are the best-selling products of Express Service. They have extremely low operation costs and are virtually maintenance free. They have numerous advantages over the diesel locos.

Through cooperation with its main customer – Hegenscheidt MFD from Germany – Bulgarian shunters are exported to many different locations in the whole world.

Shunting locomotives are mainly used:

  • in locomotive and wagon repair depots
  • in railway workshops
  • at rolling stock enterprises and
  • at industrial plants
  • in ports and logistic terminals.

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!
