TRAXX DE Multi Engine

Home Bombardier TRAXX DE (ME) TRAXX DE Multi Engine

In 2012, Bombardier presented its TRAXX DE 'Multi-Engine'. The exterior is not much different from older TRAXX products. What is new and innovative for this modern European diesel locomotive, is on the inside. The TRAXX DE ME has four heavy-duty industrial diesel engines with 540 kW each. They offer a more efficient, fuel-saving, environmental friendly alternative to the singe-engine solution.
