In 2011, SD – Kolejová doprava (SD-KD) received a first Class 741.7 diesel locomotive from CZ LOKO. After five years, the designated 741 706-6 is no longer the sole representative of its type in SD-KD’s fleet.
Between October and December 2016, the loco was joined by a further three 741.7 diesels, namely:
– 741 732-2, delivered 10/2016
– 741 735-5, delivered 11/2016
– 741 736-3, delivered 12/2016
The Class 741.7 is a heavily modernized vehicle completely built with new parts with the exception of the frame and bogies, which are provided by old ČKD-built Class 740/742 locomotives. Powered by a Caterpillar 3508C engine, the 741.7 complies with Stage IIIa emission legislation, has a power rating of 1000 kW and a maximum speed of 100 km/h. Other operators of the type include STRABAG Rail a.s. and ArcelorMittal Ostrava a.s. from the Czech Republic, and Dinazzano Po S.p.A. from Italy.
