Russian Railways has agreed the technical terms of reference regarding the development stage of the TEM9H SinaraHybrid, which is Russia’s first hybrid locomotive.

The locomotive is being developed by the engineering company Innovation Development Centre CTM, which is part of Sinara-Transport Machines.

The SinaraHybrid will be equipped with a hybrid engine with four axles, electric transmission generating a variable alternating current individual drive to each wheel pair, and a capacity of 1,200hp.

The shunting locomotive will be equipped with lithium-ion batteries accumulators and super condensers offering environment and energy-efficiency.

According to the company the new locomotive will offer better technical performance compared with the TEM9base model, consuming 40% less diesel and emitting 55% fewer greenhouse gases.

The main high-tech components – an asynchronous traction drive and microprocessor control systems for the locomotive’s hybrid drive – and the algorithms needed for the operation are being developed by experienced Russian scientists and designers.
