Stadler Valencia to supply three locomotives to Bolivia


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.

Empresa Ferroviaria Andina

Empresa Ferroviaria Andina (FCA) provides comprehensive freight and passenger transportation services along a 2,276 km railway network that crosses the western part of Bolivia, linking the departments of La Paz, Oruro, Cochabamba, Potosí and Chuquisaca; and connecting the country with Chile (Arica and Antofagasta), Argentina (La Quiaca) and Peru (Puno).
