Prima T6 and Prima T8 offer one of the highest power and tractive efforts of the market which is provided by the double-section locomotives. Prima T6 is able to reach 120 km/h with a traction effort up to 584 kN. It provides up to 9,600 kW traction power and is capable to pull up to 10,000 tons.
Prima T8 can travel at speeds of up to 120 km/h with a traction effort up to 833 kN. It provides up to 8,800 kW traction power and is capable to pull up to 9,000 tons.
The maintenance of Prima T6 and Prima T8 throughout their lifecycle is facilitated by their modular and standardised architecture. Designed for service ability, principles have been applied to provide easier access to key parts and systems which facilitate maintenance. Alstom’s TrainTracer solution for preventive maintenance solution increases train availability and reduces maintenance costs.
