EffiShunter 1000EffiShunter 1000

Diesel locomotive EffiShunter 1000 is intended for shunting and line service. The locomotive is equipped with alternating power transmission (AC/AC) from the diesel engine to four powered wheelsets. For optimum use of the locomotive‘s power, the asynchronous traction motors are individually powered and controlled. Parameters of the vehicle are optimized for station shunting and for heavy operation on industrial sidings, e.g. in metallurgical, mining and petrochemical sectors with the possibility to perform line service.

The undercarriage of the locomotive comprises two double-axle bogies with individual drive of all wheelsets. The traction motors are nose-suspended on the axles using rolling bearings. The drive unit is located in the front hood of the locomotive and comprises the Caterpillar diesel engine and the Siemens traction alternator. The front hood space includes most of the auxiliary drives, engine cooling block and the pneumatic unit. The rear hood contains electric switchboards and the electrodynamic brake block. The power regulation and control of the entire locomotive is ensured by the control system made by MSV elektronika with cruise control function and remote diagnostics by means of GSM and GPS technologies. The locomotive is equipped with a DAKO air brake and a parking (stored-energy) brake.
