ABB’s Power2 technology has been enhanced for use in the toughest rail applications. Now compact in size for optimal use in the rail sector, the outer dimensions of Power2 have been minimized while the swallowing capacity of the machines has been maintained. Closer attention has also been paid to enhancing the design for serviceability. Power2 for locomotives is also durable and optimized for cyclical applications in order to fit to railway overhaul schedule.
Installed as a three-turbocharger configuration, it’s size to performance ratio is up to 25% lower than four-turbocharger two-stage solutions. The technology delivers unrivalled flexibility with guaranteed consistent operational performance over the large range of ambient conditions in which locomotives are required to operate. For example, the system can support engines to generate 80% power at altitudes as high as 4000m above sea level, and in temperature variants of -40°C to +40°C, without users having to de-rate the engine.
