Lineas Shunters To Be Overhauled

posted on 23rd Jun 2020 11:23

In early May 2020 Voith started the overhauls of a batch of 30 Class 77 dieselhydraulic shunters belonging to Lineas. The contract was signed on 30 April 2020, following overhauls of three locomotives realised as prototypes in 2019 and 2020. The agreement covers a major overhaul with a predefined basic scope as well as other options for variant-specific components and for the type L4r4 turbo transmissions.

The work will be carried out at Voith Kiel within the next 4.5 years. The fundamentals of this collaboration are based on reliability improvement, cost reduction and downtime optimisations. On top of analysing the technical condition of the vehicles, Voith can potentially also perform several upgrades as part of the overhaul. Together with three prototypes, which are not part of the contract, 33 Lineas Class 77 shunters will be dealt.
