Knoxville Locomotive Works has begun delivering its largest order for low-emissions diesel locomotives.
The Type SE10B and SE15B locos were ordered by Locomotive Solutions for use at chemical plants in Texas, with partial funding from the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The locomotives are expected to reduce fuel consumption by up to 50% and emissions by up to 90% compared to the ones they are replacing, with modern traction control improving haulage capabilities, so that more work can be done with the same or less horsepower.
