ZF Repowering

Retrofitting for Increased Profitability

Replacing the driveline with ZF driveline technology pays off: ZF EcoWorld reduces the fuel consumption of Diesel Multiple Units in public transport and regional traffic by up to 20 percent.

If public transport and regional traffic train operators want to stay on the right track for success, their vehicles must run cost-effectively for as long as possible. For Diesel Multiple Units, fuel costs alone make up two thirds of the vehicles’ total life cycle costs. Fuel consumption is therefore a constant challenge for operators, a challenge just waiting for ZF EcoWorld.

ZF’s Repowering solutions aim at reducing fuel consumption and thus life cycle costs and at extending the service life of the rail vehicles. In the repowering process, outdated driveline technology is replaced by modern, efficiently working driveline components.
