Late last year, Express Service OOD delivered an ES3000 battery-powered shunting locomotive to the Voutré quarry in France.

ES3000 successfully shunts 24-wagon trains, transporting goods and handing them over to a rail carrier. The ES3000 shunting locomotive does an excellent job of handling long and heavy trains on the industrial railway line and at Voutré station.

The buyer – Société des Carri ères de Voutré – decided to buy the Bulgarian ES3000 battery powered shunting locomotive in order to achieve:

  • Efficiency in shunting work;
  • Decarbonization of its railway line;
  • Silent operations for the locals.

All tasks were successfully solved by the Bulgarian rolling stock manufacturer and implemented in the ES3000 battery shunting locomotive.

Two ES1000 battery-powered shunting locomotives by Express Service are going to Great Britain!

Another interesting fact is that the French government encourages decarbonization and real efficiency of railway operations, in addition, there are financial incentives to eliminate harmful emissions in railway transport.

The advantage of the ES3000 locomotive is the ability to control it with one person, who carries out shunting and loading work, remotely controls the train and positions it back to the station. This is the model of efficiency in shunting that can be achieved with the help of Express Service OOD shunting techniques.
