The railroad engineering company Alstom has awarded VINCORION a contract to supply 41 auxiliary traction drive systems for its last-mile locomotives. The order has a value of approximately 5.8 million euros.

Known as last-mile gensets, the units from VINCORION are used in electric locomotives that are equipped with diesel combustion engines in addition to electric propulsion. This solution ensures that the locomotives continue to receive power if the overhead line fails or if there simply isn’t one – as is usually the case on the first and last few miles of a railroad track.

Tailored Last-Mile Gensets from the Bavarian Municipality of Altenstadt

VINCORION’s last-mile gensets feature a compact design that allows them to be precisely integrated into the inside of the locomotive. With its many years of experience in providing tailored power solutions in the railway market, VINCORION is the market leader in the field of auxiliary power units. These are available with various emission standards and are manufactured by VINCORION at the company’s site in Altenstadt, Bavaria.
