Ural Locomotives received a certificate of conformity for electric locomotives “Sinara”
Ural Locomotives received Customs Union approval for its 3KV DC 3ES6 and 4ES6 locomotives, which are based on a 2ES6 two-section design with one or two intermediate sections added to provide additional power.
Oleg Spai, General Director of Ural Locomotives, said that the certification of three- and four-section units will open up new opportunities for the use of locomotives in heavy trains.
The use of one booster section will allow locomotives to transport trains weighing up to 8,000 tons, and two ones – up to 12,500 tons, with the distributed brake control system used.
