ES (Evolution Series) of locomotives are built by GE Transportation
Systems and designed to meet the U.S. EPA's Tier 2 locomotive emissions
standards that took effect in 2005. These Evolution Series locomotives
are equipped with AC traction motors and are powered by a newly
designed "GEVO-12" 12 cylinder engine that produces the
same power as the 16 cylinder AC4400CW, but with fewer emissions
and greater fuel economy. It also carries a redesigned air-to-air
dual-fan heat exchanger, which gives it its distinct "oversized"
radiator; a common spotting feature for these new locomotives.
