CERTIFER completed DeBo missions for the Euro 6000 locomotive, which has just been authorised in France and Spain
The Stadler Euro 6000 electric locomotives (dual mode 1.5 and 25 kV) have been manufactured at the Albuixech plant in Valencia. These locomotives have been certified for the transport services in Spain and France. Their main distinguishing features are their 6 axles, compared to the 4 axles of most of the current European fleet, as well as their adaptable bogie usable on UIC or Iberic gauges.
As Designated Body, CERTIFER carried out an assessment mission to ensure that the Euro 6000 locomotive complies with the French and Spanish national rules. The story will continue in 2022 with the Luxembourg, for both the assessment and the tests organisation on the Luxembourg railway infrastructure, including accredited laboratories services.
