On 6 May, a completely refurbished Class 642/643 diesel shunter returned to operation following extensive modification work performed at our shop in Maribor under a project to repower a total of 12 units, which had been awarded to the American locomotive manufacturer and maintenance supplier NRE, Global Headquarters Mount Vernon, Illinois.

At SŽ - VIT, we have been working to modernize Slovenske železnice\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s rolling stock for a number of years now, and this includes, amongst other, upgrading and repowering Class 642 and 643 shunting locomotives. To increase vehicle availability, cut maintenance costs, lower emissions and better meet operational restrictions, the locomotive\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s owner SŽ-Tovorni promet decided on a project to repower and modify its existing units at our Maribor shop, which is specialized in maintaining diesel vehicles.

The modification work is a result of careful and zealous planning done in collaboration with SŽ-Tovorni promet. Modern rail technology features a number of advantages when it comes to refurbished locomotives, demonstrating that old and worn-out equipment can be reworked into like new locomotives, which has always been one of our goals at diesel unit maintenance.
