Bombardier to deliver ten Traxx MS locomotives to CFL cargo
Bombardier Transportation has secured a new contract to deliver ten Traxx MS3 locomotives to Luxembourg-based railway undertaking CFL cargo. The new locomotives will enable cross-border freight transport and facilitate haulage between Central Europe and France. The vehicles will also be equipped with Last Mile diesel concept that will enable the Traxx locomotives to operate across non-electrified terminals and sites.
CFL cargo CEO Laurence Zenner said: “We are very pleased to be the first railway operator to expand its business offering with an optimised rail transport solution for the East-West European corridor. “The new Traxx multi-system locomotives will allow us to cross numerous borders as easily as a truck, thus providing our clients with a competitive transport solution that contributes to reaching the European New Green Deal objective of increasing rail’s share of Europe’s overall transport to 30% by 2030.”
Slated to be delivered next year, the Traxx MS locomotives will be authorised to operate in Luxembourg, Germany, Poland, Austria, Belgium and France.
Bombardier Transportation Global Business Development Locomotives head Peter Ammann said: “Together, with our launch customer CFL cargo, we are proud to offer an innovative solution that opens new business opportunities for rail transport clients. “Our Traxx MS locomotive is Europe’s most-modern locomotive, and we are looking forward to supporting the expansion of East-West freight transport in Europe.” The Traxx3 locomotive is developed on the proven Traxx platform.
More than 2,000 of Traxx locomotives are currently in service in 20 countries.
Earlier this month, Bombardier launched a railway signalling predictive maintenance solution.
