Shuttlewagon Announces New Zero Emission, All-Electric Railcar Movers
Kansas City, MO – January 6, 2020 – Shuttlewagon announces the addition of the SWXe series of compact electric railcar movers to its expansive line of mobile railcar movers. The SWXe Compact Electric Series adds seven new all-electric models to Shuttlewagon’s growing portfolio of diesel railcar movers, and the all-electric NVXe.
The new models range from 310 tons of towing capacity up to 4,000 tons and are ideal to meet the needs of all customers who are looking for easy to operate, low maintenance, and efficient railcar movers. Shuttlewagon is collaborating with Colmar Technik S.p.A. to provide the most complete offering of electrics in the industry. The new electric segment complements the existing Shuttlewagon Navigator All-Electric Series designed for higher tractive effort conditions, such as when companies need to move up to 40 loaded or empty railcars.
“The Compact Electric Series is yet another example of our innovative spirit at Shuttlewagon. These products complete our offering below our smallest diesel offering and allow us to provide our customers with more choices in addition to our already expansive line of railcar movers,” said Oz Gocmen, VP of Sales, Shuttlewagon. “The partnership with Colmar gives Shuttlewagon the ability to go to market fast with proven technology.”
Shuttlewagon has been an innovator with Commander and Navigator models in mobile railcar movers since 1972. Colmar’s history manufacturing rail equipment goes back to 1967 with the development of its first Colmar Railroad Loader.
