The 2ES10 is a twin section (Bo'Bo)(Bo'Bo') freight locomotive manufactured from 2010 by Ural Locomotives. RZD ordered 221 units in 2010. Ukrainian Railways ordered 50 units in 2013.

History and design[edit]

The 2ES10 is a two unit 8 axle electric freight locomotive manufactured for RZD by Ural Locomotives, a joint venture between Sinara Group of Russia (base platform and auxiliary equipment) and Siemens of Germany (traction electrical equipment).[5][6]

The 2ES10 offers double the power output of VL11 locomotives, with lower operating and maintenance costs.[7] During trials in August 2010, a three-section 2ES10 hauled a 9,000-tonne (8,900-long-ton; 9,900-short-ton) train across the Urals.[8]

In May 2010, Russian Railways signed an order for 221 2ES10 locomotives.[9] The first prototype locomotive was presented 18 November 2010.[10]

In 2012 the company JSC "Apatite" (ОАО "Апатит") acquired one locomotive, 2ES10-222.[11]

In 2013 Ukrainian Railways sign an agreement to lease 50 2ES10 units as part of a larger 350 locomotive order;[12] the first unit was delivered in Dec. 2013.[13]
