Schalke and Ingeteam to Collaborate on a New Platform of Shunting Locomotives


Ingeteam will supply the German company Schalker Eisenhütte Maschinenfabrik (Schalke) with traction converters and other equipment for the new platform of multi-system service and shunting locomotives, offered mainly for urban rail applications.

The solution offered by Ingeteam will make the most efficient match with the Schalke ModuTrac platform. Thanks to its modular design, its traction technology and modules can be combined in a variety of ways to suit the requirements of the customer.

The locomotive can be supplied with the required power via a number of different modules. A diesel-powerpack, battery-powerpack, a pantograph for catenary operation or a third rail are all available and can be either combined with one another or simply used alternately.

The traction system and auxiliary equipment have been designed accordingly to these particular needs and requirements of space and weight, while maintaining high standards of availability, reliability and easy maintenance of traction converters.
