FIVE cooling sets are being delivered to Vossloh España by Voith Turbo each month, for use in the construction of 160 four-axle 1000 kW shunting locos for SNCF.

The packages include the cooler, fan, hydrostatic drives, hydrostatic drive motor fan, compensation tank and complete control technology. The double-circuit cooling systems include VTCsmart digital temperature control units directly installed on the compensation tanks. The temperatures of the cooling water and charge air are controlled to maintain optimum temperatures as load conditions vary.

Following testing at Voith’s Mergelstetten plant, delivery of the sets began in July with completion planned for 2008.
