In March 2014, Transnet announced a R50-billion contract with four manufacturers for 1064 new locomotives to drive its market development strategy. Power, efficiency, and reliability are key to powering these machines, responsible for pulling multiple wagons that carry substantial amounts of precious cargo across vast distances. At 2983 kW, the QSK95 is the highest-output 16-cylinder high-speed diesel engine available in the market. Combining Cummins’ latest-generation modular common rail fuel system technology with quad-turbocharging and integral selective catalytic reduction after-treatment, the QSK95 delivers reduced noise, excellent response and ultra-low emissions capability in a smaller footprint than the medium-speed diesel engines traditionally used in locomotives.
