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.
