HITACHI Rail has placed an order with Rolls-Royce to supply 136 MTU Series 1600 PowerPacks for installation on 36 class 802 trains that will predominately operate Great Western Railway services between London, Plymouth and Penzance from 2018.
The powerpack utilise MTU’s 12V 1600 R80L 12-cylinder diesel engine and Rolls-Royce says the engines offer a high-power density, low consumption and low emissions. Specifically, a built-in SCR unit ensures they meet EU Stage IIIB emissions legislation.
