The project is the first Russian locomotive with hybrid setup, developed
The new machine will have important advantages: efficiency — reducing the consumption of diesel fuel is expected in the range of 30%, and environmental friendliness — will reduce environmental emissions to 55%. Furthermore, locomotive can be used as a mobile power station. In general, the design involves the use of a hybrid locomotive over 20 innovative technical solutions.
Note that in the present series production hybrid locomotives is not developed even abroad, so in Russia, a competitive product. It is planned that the prototype of the domestic diesel hybrid will be available in late 2011.
