The Vectron DE is a well-designed diesel-electric locomotive with excellent running characteristics. Like the other Vectron locomotives, Vectron DE meets all your requirements. You benefit from low fuel consumption, maximum ease of repair, extreme reliability in operation, and standard-compliant technology. Vectron DE is currently authorized in Germany and Austria.
In 2012, emissions requirements became even stricter with European Directive EU97/IIIB. It mandated an 88 percent reduction in particulate emissions and a 40 percent reduction in the emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx), compared with the previous standards. Vectron DE complies with this directive by feeding the exhaust gas back into the combustion chamber and thereby avoiding NOx emissions altogether. To reduce particulate emissions, it uses a particle filter that’s integrated into the exhaust silencer and therefore requires no additional installation space.
The Vectron DE locomotive’s diesel engine was specifically developed for conditions in railway applications. The single-engine concept employs a minimum of moving parts and so offers the highest possible reliability in operation. Vectron DE also proved itself through its low fuel consumption.
