Lightweight

alt

GE Transportation’s Lightweight offerings consist of the C30ACi Locomotive, the first AC diesel-electric locomotive to be introduced to sub-Saharan Africa. The addition of these new models, which will be used to haul freight and coal, will decrease life cycle costs, improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.

With GE Transportation’s C30ACi Locomotives, a South African customer can deploy three C30ACi models to haul a load that would require four older locomotives, reducing annual diesel fuel consumption by 600,000 liters under typical operating conditions. The locomotive can reduce
emissions by 1,500 metric tons of CO2 annually, equivalent to eliminating the emissions from 310 cars on South African roads.

The C30ACi Locomotive engine delivers 3,300 GHP using an electronic fuel-injection system that automatically supplies the exact amount of fuel needed for optimum engine efficiency. GE Transportation’s C30ACi Locomotive also is the first locomotive in the South African region to meet UIC2 emissions standards. The C30ACi Locomotive features GE Transportation’s unique individual axle control AC propulsion technology that improves hauling capability and decreases life cycle cost.

GE Transportation’s C30ACi Locomotive is a product of ecomagination, a GE-wide initiative to help meet customer demand for more energy- efficient products. Three C30ACi Locomotives can haul the same load that took four older locomotives. Under typical operating conditions, that means these models annually reduce fuel use by 600,000 liters and CO2 emissions by 1,500 metric tons — equivalent to eliminating the emissions of more than 300 cars.

CM20-EMP

alt

The CM20EMP locomotive is a dual-cab AC/DC locomotive designed exclusively for the Indonesian market. The CM20EMP locomotive is designed for light axle load operations, it has low clearance and it can operate on narrow gauge tracks, with a 1,067 mm track gauge adjustable to 1,000 mm. Equipped with an 8-cylinder GE FDL 8 engine with Electronic Fuel Injection and turbocharger, the CM20EMP provides better fuel efficiency than its predecessor. The CM20EMP also has better reliability, improved availability and reduced emissions, thanks to the adoption of UIC II emission standards.
