Voith’s Follow-up Order

Voith matches its power packs with MAN engines for Brazil VLT Mobile 4 railcars

Posted on April 29, 2013

Drive systems manufacturer Voith has placed a follow-up order with MAN for a further 68 six-cylinder, inline D2876 LUE605 rail engines that are scheduled to be delivered by the end of 2014.

The engines, each producing 338 kW, will be installed using a Voith power pack in the Brazilian VLT Mobile 4 light rail vehicle railcars. The almost 60-m long passenger trains of the Brazilian train manufacturer, Bom Sinal, take more than 770 passengers to their destination as part of the local transport of the major cities of Fortaleza and Recife, Brazil.

Over the last two years, MAN has delivered 66 type D2876 horizontal engines to the Heidenheim, Germany-based, technology company.
