The EURO6000 locomotives, manufactured by Stadler Valencia, offer the highest hauling capacity on the market and are designed for efficient and sustainable freight transport with the benefits of electric traction. The locomotives’ high power and tractor effort will enable Low Cost Rail to operate longer and heavier trains in single traction, making the transportation process more flexible and efficient.

“We are delighted to add Stadler’s top-of-the-range electric locomotives to our fleet. They will help our company to develop new efficient rail corridors. We would like to thank Alpha Trains for making this possible. Low Cost Rail proves its commitment with environmentally sustainable transport with this investment,” Iñigo de Peñaranda, partner at Low Cost Rail said.

Low Cost Rail received funding for this purchase from the Spanish Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (MITMA) as part of the Programme to Support Sustainable and Digital Transport (PATSYD) in the frame of the Plan for Recovery, Transformation and Resiliency (PRTR) financed by the Next Generation European Funds.

The agreement is a further step in Alpha Trains’ commitment to the provision of reliable and efficient rail transport solutions that reduce the impact on the environment.

Low Cost Rail provides traction and all types of freight services on the entire network with Iberian gauge and the procurement of electric locomotives for Spanish market will increase freight efficiency and will strengthen the development of rail transport.

Under the partnership with Low Cost Rail and Stadler Valencia, “our goal is to provide our customers with innovative and sustainable rail transport solutions, and we believe that these locomotives are an important step in achieving this goal,” Fernando Pérez, Interim CEO of the Alpha Trains Group said.
