Engines ordered for Civity UK DMUs



UK: Rolls-Royce’s MTU business is to supply 140 Series 1800 PowerPacks for use on the 55 Civity UK diesel multiple-units which Spanish rolling stock manufacturer CAF is building for use on Arriva’s Northern franchise.

Announcing the order on February 3, Rolls-Royce said the 390 kW PowerPacks would have 6H 1800 R85L engines and comply with EU Stage IIIB emissions regulations, with built-in selective catalytic reduction units to reduce the amount of nitrogen oxide produced.

The order for the 160 km/h Civity UK DMUs was announced by leasing company Eversholt Rail in January 2016. The 25 two-car and 30 three-car Class 195 units are to be used on the Northern Connect branded services linking cities in northern England, facilitating a cascade of existing rolling stock which would enable the fleet of 1980s Class 14x Pacer DMUs to be withdrawn from the Northern franchise.

Traktionssysteme Austria is to supply traction motors for the 31 three-car and 12 four-car Class 331 electric multiple-units which CAF is to build for Northern.
