The first Gamma loco is to appear on tracks this year. It will be an electric 4-axle loco with 5600 kW power, supplied with 3 kV DC voltage, designated as 111E. It will feature an additional diesel engine so that it can be used for shunting operations in diesel traction.
[The GAMA is a platform of multi-system locos.]
Having a fleet of Gama-based locos helps to reduce the costs of:
- supplying spare parts
- training drivers and maintenance staff
- equipping repair shops
Should the market demand change in the future, the delivered locos can be reconfigured to adapt them to operation in other countries, and to successfully use them as locos performing cross-border transport.
