ETF, the French rail construction company, has ordered two EURO 4000 locomotives from Vossloh España for freight services. The vehicles are intended to transport building materials for the construction of railway lines.
These new units will be in-service before next summer; ETF will use them on their high-speed lines jobsites – on the East European high-speed line (HSL East) and the HSL Tours – Bordeaux. This stretch of railroad, between Paris and Budapest, will be the largest line of high-speed in Europe.
With these new units the EURO 4000 consolidates its position in the French market with 28 vehicles sold.
The EURO 4000 by Vossloh España is the most powerful diesel-electric locomotive manufactured in Europe. It is a highly innovative vehicle that stands up due to its versatility, performance, technology and environmental compliance. The EURO 4000 can pull longer and heavier freight trains at faster speed than its competitors, which increases the operator´s competitiveness and efficiency.
