CZ LOKO is working on several versions of new locomotives and

 

some of their prototypes should appear on the market in 2022 and

 

2023. The company is thus reacting to the demands of customers

 

who no longer desire purely diesel-fuelled locomotives. Therefore,

 

the development is headed to combining electricity, batteries and

 

combustion engines. The new locomotives will be called

 

DualShunter 2000, EffiLiner 2000 and DualLiner 2000. The

 

DualShunter 2000 model with an output around 2 MW will combine

 

a combustion engine and equipment for riding under external

 

traction. The EffiLiner 2000 concept with an output of almost 2,000

 

kW includes a diesel-electric drive and an additional battery with an

 

equivalent output of 400 kW. The DualLiner 2000 locomotive will be

 

capable of operation in 3 kV and 25 kV 50 Hz traction systems even

 

from a combustion engine.
