Advantages of Class 2ES6 Locomotive

    • MPSUiD microprocessor-based control system with automated train driving, remote locomotive control capability, diagnostics and data transmission via radio, with data recording, and GPS/GLONASS tracking.
    • The design provides the possibility to couple locomotives for multiple-unit operation, as well as to use one section of the locomotive in a stand-alone mode.
    • The first successful use of DC electric motors with independent excitation for improved tractive effort 
    • Advanced BLOC safety system ensuring the safest driving.
    • Multiple-unit/single-section operation.
    • Improved working conditions for locomotive crew. 
    • Higher operating speed for higher traffic throughput without any investment into infrastructure.
    • Average daily performance increased by 25-45 % thanks to higher tonnage rating*.
    • Energy consumption reduced by 10-15 %*
    • Repair hours reduced by 15 %*
    • Maintenance intervals increased by half*
