RailPacks for the First Time with Diesel Engine
Drive Systems for Stettin Trains with Voith Diesel Engine
Since 2010 Voith is also an official rail engine manufacturer. For the first time, the RailPacks will feature the Voith R2876T3-390 horizontal six-cylinder engine with an output of 390 kW. The V6 engine operates with a single-stage turbocharging concept and an SCR system.
Voith diesel engines have been developed for railcars, locomotives and special vehicles. Apart from the horizontal six-cylinder diesel engine, the portfolio includes a V8 with 500 kW. At present, Voith is working extensively at the development of a V12 engine with an output of 580 kW or 700 kW. Voith engines meet all rail and exhaust norms.
Voith diesel engines stand out by low fuel consumption and low emissions. Their robustness and reliability as well as long service intervals - a feature demanded by rail operators for reasons of economy - make them particularly suitable for rail applications.
Worldwide, over 800 RailPacks are in service. Installed in the underfloor area of the railcar in order to save space they comprise all components required for driving rail vehicles and their auxiliary systems: diesel engine, transmission, generator or cooling system. Voith builds RailPacks in the 382 kW to 750 kW power class.
