[IT] SerFer orders EffiShunter 1000

At InnoTrans 2016, CZ LOKO first presented its Class 744.1 EffiShunter 1000. This updated version of the original Class 744.0 EffiShunter 1000, presented at InnoTrans 2012, is TSI-compliant and ETCS ready. Now the Czech manufacturer has won its first order for the type.

CZ LOKO has been awarded a first order for its Class 744.1 EffiShunter 1000 diesel locomotive. On 5 April 2017, the company signed a contract for the delivery of five locomotives to SerFer, with options for five more, after successfully taking part in a tender issued by the Italian operator.

The fully TSI-compliant diesels will be equipped with Caterpillar C32 engines, delivering 895 kW. The locos will have a maximum speed of 100 km/h and will be equipped with the Italian train protection system BL3, enabling their use on shunting and mainline services. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in February 2018.
