Heavy Haul Power International - HHPI

Frontvieuw of the 29008 exposed at the railway exhibition from the Messe in Berlin


A subtype PH37Aci has been designed to be built to fit within the UIC 505-1 vehicle gauge. Unlike the original version built for the UK loading gauge the design has a full width body. There are two versions of the design, one with a 20 t (20 long tons; 22 short tons) axle load and 450 kN (100,000 lbf) starting tractive effort intended for European railways, and a 21 t (21 long tons; 23 short tons) axleload version with more powerful traction motors and starting tractive effort of 544 kN (122,000 lbf). The versions have axleload class L620 and L621 as defined by European Standard EN 15528 (2008).
Unlike PH237ACmi the locomotives are expected to be built to a cowl unit external design, with dimensions of 21.7 m (71 ft 2.3 in) long, width 2.9 m (9 ft 6.17 in), and height 4.3 m (14 ft 1.29 in). The locomotives retain a twin cab design. Fuel tank capacity is 9,000 L (2,000 imp gal; 2,400 US gal), with 3,490 hp (2,600 kW) available for traction, and a braking force of 270 kN (61,000 lbf) maximum. The European version is expected to be re-designed to meet 'European Driver Desk' recommendations, and UIC 612 standards, with a central driving position. The L620 version is expected to have a redesigned bogie. The track gauge for the PH37ACi can be from 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) to 1,668 mm (5 ft 5 2⁄3 in).
Kits for the new design were expected to be shipped to TÜLOMSAŞ (Turkey) in early 2012. A Tulomsas assembled locomotive in Heavy Haul International branding was exhibited at Innotrans trade fair in September 2012.
European freight operator Heavy Haul Power International is expected to take delivery of pilot production 2-6 Powerhaul locomotives assembled at Tulomsas; the locomotives are expected to be used to get certification for operation in Germany and the Benelux states.
