Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
  1. All power ratings I gave are for the diesel engines -- the power on the wheel is roughly 10% less, due to losses in the transmission (and the consumption of auxiliary systems).

  2. None of the EU-based makers build their own locomotive diesel engines. Beyond EMD/GM, GE and Kolomna, the main suppliers are: Caterpillar (based in Peoria, Illinois, USA), MTU Friedrichshafen (in Baden-Württenberg, Germany), Cummins (based in Columbus, Indiana, USA).

Forgot another diesel engine maker: Ango Belgian Corporation (The 'Anglo' refers to the original investors a century ago; today it is owned by a Luxembourgian firm). But, of types presently in production only the Voith Maxima uses an ABC engine.
