Locomotives at a glance
- 150 years' experience in locomotive design and manufacturing
- Adaptable for all climate conditions and norms / standards
- Higher energy efficiency than comparable locomotives
- Extended maintenance intervals
- Can be equipped with a last-mile, hybrid or even dual-power functionality
Alstom’s locomotive portfolio is the broadest in the industry and covers most electric and hybrid markets worldwide. Our Prima and Traxx locomotives have been proven to pull heavier train loads compared with locomotives of the same class in many applications.
Several locomotive types can be equipped with last-mile, hybrid or even dual-power functionality to allow more sustainable and efficient operation concepts.
The most innovative locomotives in European freight and passenger transportation
The Traxx 3 platform offers a flexible and modular design for many applications and configurations in Europe and neighbouring regions. Its strong, modular platform approach results in various advantages for single as well as multi-country applications. Dozens of customers benefit from high reliability and availability, commonality and a strong service network for all types of support, while reducing their operational cost with reduced energy consumption and increased payload.
High power for heavy freight
Alstom’s Prima T8 heavy freight locomotives are among the most powerful in the world, capable of hauling up to 10,000 tonnes at speeds of up to 120 km/h. They can be built for different railway gauges, standards (GOST, TSI, India, China, etc.) and catenary voltages, as well as for long international journeys and also for extreme weather conditions.
The advantages of modularity
A member of our Prima locomotive range, which benefits from our 150-year experience in locomotive design, the Prima M4 is particularly versatile, offering state-of-the-art solutions in various regions. The locomotives serve as the backbone of passenger operations, being able to haul a great variety of cars at different speeds.
Shunting with an eco-friendly attitude
Prima shunting locomotives are designed to reduce CO2 and noise emissions. The hybrid (diesel and battery) based Prima H3 has proven to save up to 60% in diesel fuel with its clever energy management. It has also reduced noise by approx. 15 dB, which is highly appreciated in residential neighbourhoods. The Prima H4 locomotives even go a step further in eco-friendliness by offering catenary and diesel, or catenary and battery-based solutions for heavier shunting, track works or short haul operation. This gives substantial reductions in noise and carbon footprint – up to 6,000 tonnes/year at SBB Cargo.
