GTh1 gas turbine locomotive enters regular service in Russia

ГТ1h-002Russian Railways (RZD) subsidiary Sverdlovsk Railway has introduced into operation the LNG gas turbine GTh1-002 freight locomotive on Egorshino – Alapayevsk – Serov -Marshaling Yard rail line. 

In May 2016, GTh1-002 successfully pulled a train weighing 9,000 tons along the 700 km long Surgut – Voinovka rail section, without refueling at intermediate stations. In the near future, the locomotive will also operate on the northern section of the Sverdlovsk main line, which are not electrified.

Sverdlovsk Railway has built a special LNG refuelling complex for the rolling stock near Yekaterinburg.
