Travca: Traction Without Borders
Travca is a locomotive that stops at nothing; not at different power supplies, track gauges nor signalling systems all of which makes Travca Talgo's most advanced development in the field of traction.
Talgo has not only been the leading global manufacturer in variable gauge technology for rolling stock for the past 50 year, it was also the first train manufacturer to build a locomotive that can adjust the axle gauge without having to stop. Designed to ease passenger traffic at international borders, Travca can also be used for freight transport and in last mile operations without electrification.
All kinds of trains and tracks
- Designed to comply with interoperability specifications on high-speed lines while minimising travel times on conventional lines.
- Capable of running on tracks with different gauges without having to stop to adjust the axles.
- With a maximum speed of 260km/h, Travca can haul trains without affecting traffic flow on saturated high-speed corridors.
- A modular designs means that the most advanced safety and signalling systems can be installed including ERTMS, LZB, EBICAB, and TVM430.
Dual voltage: any power supply will do
- Runs on 3kV dc and 25kV ac electrification.
- Adaptable to any other voltage
- Hybrid version for last mile operations on non-electrified stretches simplifies operations.
Lightweight and efficient
- A weight of 18 tonnes per axle results in minimal track wear.
- Reduced power but equal performances: a 3,600kW output offers rapid acceleration.
- Consumes less electricity and releases fewer air polluting emissions.
