Hybrid Locomotives for Sellafield

CLAYTON Equipment, Britain, has won a contract from Sellafield, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Britain’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, to supply two CBD80 diesel-hybrid locomotives.

The CBD80 is an 80-tonne Bo-Bo Hybrid+ locomotive, which features both onboard batteries that use a three-phase supply for emission-free operation as well as a diesel engine, which is compliant with EU Stage V emissions standards.
Clayton says the new locomotives will help to reduce Sellafield’s operation and maintenance costs. 
The Sellafield nuclear power plant was decommissioned in 2003 but remains Europe’s largest nuclear site with around 13,000 employees working on decommissioning of historic plants and reprocessing fuel from British and international reactors.
