Conversion of the locomotives series 163

ČD Cargo is launching the historically second project of conversion of locomotives series 163 into dual-system locomotives series 363. The winner of the public tender for the conversion of 18 locomotives series 163 was Českomoravská železniční opravna, s.r.o. The main reason for the conversion is the gradual transformation of the DC power supply system to an AC power supply system on the railway lines of the Czech Republic.

The locomotives will be further equipped with the European Train Control System, the supplier of which is ČD Telematika a.s. and AŽD Praha s.r.o. The locomotive 363.075, ie the first locomotive of this series equipped with this system, will become a model for the installation. ČD Cargo will use approved financial support from the Operational Programme Transport for the project, while the level of financial support is set at up to 50% of eligible expenses.
