Hybrid locs in the Rotterdam port area

A preliminary study of potential impact

One of the measures proposed in a regional action plan to improve air quality in the Rijnmond area aims to reduce the environmental impact of railway shunting operations. With the subsidy available for this purpose, Alstom is now developing and testing a hybrid shunting locomotive in a programme supported by a project group that includes CE Delft. As part of this work, CE made a preliminary estimate of the potential emissions reduction to be achieved if the shunting locs in de Rotterdam port area were replaced by locs with a hybrid drive rather than by locs with a conventional diesel engine. This report presents the preliminary results.
