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.
