Voith Turbo Releases Its First Diesel Engine For Rail Cars
Voith Turbo has launched its first diesel engine for rail vehicles. The new V8 diesel engine, V2868, achieves an output of 500 kW with a maximum torque of 2750 Nm, making it suitable for light railway cars.
The engine, which Voith Turbo developed with MAN Diesel & Turbo, also undercuts Stage 3b emission limits due its two-stage turbocharging capabilities, a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a particle catalyzer, according to the company. The engine is also suitable for repowering projects and can be used as a Stage 3b retrofit product for rail vehicles already in service, Voith Turbo said.
Voith Turbo also expects to expand its engine range in the future.
