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.
