These state-of-the-art locomotives, designed specifically for the Ibero-American market, are of an ultra-lightweight design and feature technology that successfully meets the challenges faced by operating on metre-gauge track over 5,000 metres above sea level. These vehicles are capable of reaching a speed of 100 km/h, combining a high-power output at great altitude with reduced fuel consumption.
Especially adapted for freight service, the locomotives feature two acoustic and heat-insulated driver cabs to ensure comfort under extreme temperature conditions.
