The batch is the second delivery from the fleet of 11 locomotives ordered by China Civil Engineering Construction (CCEC) in May 2020 for use in the construction of Phase 2 of the Etihad Rail project. The first batch of four locomotives arrived in the UAE on January 19.
The standard-gauge Dongfeng 4 series locomotives have a maximum design speed of 100km/h with a maximum power output of 2.94MW.
The locomotives have been designed for the UAE’s extreme weather conditions, which includes temperatures of up to 50°C, winds and sandstorms. The locomotives also feature optimised air filtration, air-conditioning and cooling systems.
CCEC’s parent company, China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) in partnership with Ghantoot Transport & General Contracting, UAE, are currently executing construction of packages B and C of Etihad Rail Phase 2 under a pair of contracts worth $US 1.2bn awarded in June 2019.
