Currently, the Bryansk Engineering Plant (BMZ, is a TransMashHolding) tested TEM35 shunting locomotive with a combined (hybrid) power plant. TEM35 six-axle shunting locomotive with asynchronous traction motors and electric transmission AC is a new development of the holding. The design of the locomotive used electrochemical energy storage devices — supercapacitors. This solution is implemented for the first time and has no analogues in the Russian Federation.
TEM35 is made on the basis of modular assembly, thereby reducing production costs. The main elements of the basic layout of unified among themselves. As the power plant used diesel Caterpillar, which improves the performance and environmental characteristics of the locomotive. The use of motor-axial bearings eliminates the process of service wheel-motor units. Locomotive is equipped with a complex security systems.
Comfortable for the cab driver lowered the overall noise level due to the modern sound insulation materials and batch glazing, provides for a system of microclimate, thought out ergonomics. Technical solutions and components used in the creation of the locomotive, can significantly increase the time between repairs, save energy, reduce the emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere, reducing the number and duration of planned maintenance, repairs. Currently TEM35 passes preliminary and pre-commissioning tests. Since July of this year provided 300 hours of operational run of the station Bryansk-II, after which the locomotive will undergo acceptance testing and certification. Shunting locomotive TEM35 professional community will be presented as part of the exhibition EXPO 1520 in September 2013.
