Repower your Locomotives with KLW
In today's world of rising fuel prices and increased environmental regulations, now is the best time to repower your locomotives with Knoxville Locomotive Works (KLW). KLW is specialized in repowering 4-axle and 6-axle EMD and GE locomotives. Our single-engine repowered locomotives comply with government regulations, pull more cars, use less fuel, and reduce operating costs compared to the original locomotive. In short, the repower process removes just a few key components and replaces them with newer, more efficient, better-performing technologies that meet industry reliability standards. However, we keep as many original parts as possible so maintenance and operating crews will be familiar with our repowered locomotives. These are challenging times for railway industries around the world so discover what repowering your locomotives can mean for your company by clicking on the links to the right.
