AC traction performance and reliability on Wabtec’s lightest-weight platform ever.
The C20ACi locomotive is designed for higher pulling capacity to support lighter axle-load applications and incorporates all AC technology for heavy-haul operation.
The AC individual-axle traction-control technology maximize the traction effort and improves hauling capacity. The 7FDL /EFI/ turbocharged engine is proved above 4,000 meters of altitude and temperatures from -50° C to + 50° C, withstanding high cyclic thermal loads.
