Michael Fohrer, President, Region Central and Eastern Europe and Israel, Bombardier Transportation

The innovative TRAXX platform offers the latest generation of electronics and improved mechanics to provide advantages from power and tractive effort, to energy efficiency and maintenance. For example, the MS3 locomotive is the first and only multi-system locomotive that can be equipped with the Last Mile function, a technology that enables its to bridge non-electrified track sections, and the DC3 version is available with this option as well. The development of this new locomotive generation is based on the success of the proven TRAXX family. To date, more than 2,000 of these locomotives are operating in 20 countries, covering a combined distance of 300 million kilometers per-year. Their operators can rely on a dense network of workshops all over Europe as well as a multi-language, 24/7 support hotline and other benefits from Bombardier’s Services teams.  

“The outstanding performance of the TRAXX locomotives is also due to our strong services support”, says Michael Fohrer. “We offer condition-based maintenance where the locomotive’s most important systems are supervised online, which enables us to predict and prevent component failures.  We also offer many other digital tools, spare part management, upgrades, overhauls and crash repairs.”

Visit Bombardier at the Transport Logistic 2019 exhibition at the Munich Trade Fair Centre from June 4 to 7, at Stand FGL 703/1 in the outdoor exhibition area.

* Configuration = a combination of the characteristics of a locomotive defined by the countries where the locomotive shall operate and the technical options like last mile, remote control, bogie type, etc.
