According to the signed contracts before the end of the first quarter of 2013 TransMashHolding put Lithuanian railways and SILPORT (Estonia) 16 module shunting locomotives TEM-TMH.
Under the agreement, TransMashHolding passes teplovozokomplekty TEM TMH his partner — Vilnius locomotive depot and undergo final assembly and commissioning, after which the locomotives come to consumers. All locomotives will be equipped with diesel engines Caterpillar, the relevant environmental standard Euro IIIA.
TEM-TMH — the first in the practice of shunting locomotive TransMashHolding bonnet type. Developed on the basis of the locomotive TEM18 together with Vilnius locomotive depot and the Czech company CZ LOKO. Body bonnet-type locomotive, locomotive consists of six functional modules: electrical equipment, control room, diesel generator module, the module auxiliary drives, cooling module and pneumatics module. The modular design allows to vary the performance of the locomotive and its cost.
Cab provides good working conditions for the driver. It is equipped with two armchairs, air conditioning, microwave and refrigerator. Structurally, the possible installation of remote control systems, video surveillance and other large glazed surface area provides a good overview of the engineer.
Locomotives TEM TMH supplied to the Baltic countries since 2010. To date, 17 of these machines work on Lithuanian railways and 1 — in SILPORT.
TEM-TMH able to significantly improve the efficiency of shunting operations as the railways and in industrial enterprises. Practice shows that compared with the mass series locomotives TEM-TMH in operation provides fuel savings of up to 37% shunting and 45% for export operations. Robust design and innovative technical solutions provide lower costs for maintenance and repairs.
