Wabtec to repower Toronto’s Metrolinx for $45M

Posted on August 15, 2012

Wabtec Corp.’s MotivePower subsidiary signed a $45 million contract with Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario and the regional transportation authority for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA), to repower 11 locomotives with new engines and propulsion systems that meet significantly higher environmental standards.

The locomotives, originally built by MotivePower about five years ago, will be repowered with new engines that meet Tier 4 emission standards, as set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. They include technology that reduces diesel particulate emissions by about 85% and NOx emissions by about 75% compared to the current models.

Deliveries are expected to begin in 2014.
