Six-axle Alternating-current Electric Locomotive Developed in DPRK


The working class, scientists and technicians in the railway transport field of the DPRK developed a six-axle alternating-current electric locomotive based on the latest technology.

They manufactured such core parts as traction converter, auxiliary converter and asynchronous traction motor by their own efforts and technology and completed the programs for smoothly controlling the traction power and speed of the locomotive and ensuring the safety and reliability of its running.

Through successful trial run in different railway sections like steep gradient and curve, its technological specifications were scientifically confirmed.

The development of Korean-style six-axle alternating-current electric locomotive makes it possible to further increase the country’s railway transport capacity, and it is another progress in consolidating the foundation for self-supporting railway transport in keeping with the country’s specific conditions.
