ABSTRACT
Eurotunnel has delivered its first powerful fleet of Channel Tunnel Locomotives. With a continuous power rating, the locomotives can haul up to 3,000 tons at speed of up to 140 kilometers per hour. The delivery is part of an order for seven locomotives from Eurotunnel's development program Brush Traction launched in 1999. Each Eurotunnel has two locomotives - one at each end of a freight shuttle up to 800 meters long - which means that the locomotives give each freight shuttle a capacity of 14MW.
