GE Transportation receives 10,000th order for Evolution Series locomotive


GE Transportation has received its 10,000th order for the Evolution Series locomotive, which provides lower lifecycle costs.

Evolution Series locomotives have been upgraded to the latest Evolution Series Tier 4 engine.

GE Transportation president and CEO Jamie Miller said: “From Iowa to India, and Angola to the Australian Outback, our Evolution Series locomotives combine incredible power, performance and efficiency to operate in the most difficult conditions.

“The 10,000th order milestone is a testament to how well these locomotives perform in the field and meet the needs of the industry.”

The Evolution Series Tier 4 engine is equipped with the latest technology of re-circulating exhaust gases back into the engine through an upgraded cooling system that reduces emissions by nearly 70%.

“The 10,000th order milestone is a testament to how well these locomotives perform in the field and meet the needs of the industry.”

The decrease will enable the operator to comply with stringent environmental requirements.

GE also noted that the Evolution Series comes with advanced digital capabilities that provide real-time information and data to improve performance.

The Tier 4 locomotive features more than 200 sensors that are competent to process nearly one billion instructions a second.

The procured data is evaluated through an automatic system and a group of technical specialists in real-time at GE Transportation’s Global Performance Optimization Centers (GPOC) and provide customised maintenance solutions to the operators.
