ES58ACi Locomotive

Delivering maximum haulage and unit-replacement ratio for heavy-haul freight

The ES58ACi locomotive is the most powerful Wabtec heavy-haul diesel-electric unit in operation. It incorporates the latest model GEVO V16 cylinders diesel engine on an AC traction-system backbone.

The GEVO16 engine operates on a 4-stroke cycle, is fully turbocharged via two turbochargers and an intercooler producing 6000 GHP. The AC-propulsion technology with individual traction motor control maximize the traction effort and achieves higher levels of rail horsepower.
