Spain: Stadler Presents 4 Trivoltage Electric Locomotives to Renfe

Stadler Valencia has presented four of twelve high-power electric locomotives ordered by Renfe Mercancías for freight operations in Spain.

The presentation was made during Isaías Táboas, President of Renfe Operadora’s visit to the Stadler factory in Valencia.

Under the contract signed between Renfe and Stadler, four of the twelve high-power multi-system EURO6000, Iberian-gauge units should be delivered before the end of 2022. However, Stadler anticipates that it will exceed this timeframe and deliver six of the vehicles this year.

The EURO6000 vehicles are part of the Stadler EURODUAL family of locomotives

The ordered locomotives have a traction capacity of 1,800 tonnes. They will be Trivoltage (25kV AC, 3kV DC and 1.5kV DC) and will have six shafts.

Renfe Mercancías aims to deploy these zero-emission vehicles to strengthen its operations through the new Pajares tunnel, as they will provide greater load capacity and better levels of reliability.

They will be powered by 100% renewable electrical energy and will operate with a low level of internal and external noise.
