Contents 1 Order 2 Design 3 References 4 External links // Order In October 2010, Amtrak ordered 70 locomotives, to be delivered from February 2013 onwards; the locomotives will be manufactured in Sacramento, California[3][4] with secondary work occurring at Siemens facilities in Norwood, Ohio and Alpharetta, Georgia.[5] The initial order for 70 locomotives is worth $466 million.[6] The locomotives are planned to operate on the Northeast Corridor and the Keystone Corridor and replace the railroad's fleet of AEM-7 and HHP-8 locomotives.[4] Initially, the 20 AEM-7DC units with direct current propulsion would be replaced, followed by the 29 AEM-7ACs and lastly by the 15 HHP-8s.[4] The extra units in the ACS-64 order would serve to increase service.[4] The order came as part of Amtrak's company-wide fleet-replacement program, and was the second part of the plan, after an order for 130 Viewliner II passenger cars was placed in July 2010.[7] Design The design is based on the EuroSprinter and the Vectron platforms[6], but with significant structural changes including crumple zones; hence they are heavier too.[1] They will be able to operate off of 25 kV, 12.5 kV, and 12 kV power supplies, and have a total power of 6.4 megawatts (8,600 hp).[6] The locomotives are designed to be capable of maximum speeds as high as 125 mph (201 km/h) on the Northeast Corridor and 110 mph (180 km/h) on the Keystone Corridor.[7] They have advanced safety systems, including specialized couplers designed to keep trains from rolling over, jacknifing, and derailing during a collision.[7] Additionally, the new locomotives will be more energy-efficient than those that they replace, and will include regenerative braking.[7] References ^ a b "Amtrak orders Siemens 200 km/h Cities Sprinter locomotives".
