Making Fuel Go Further

Significant reductions in fuel costs will result from the installation of the GE Trip Optimizer on diesel locomotives. These innovative devices are part of GE's Ecomagination initiative and were created to optimize fuel consumption based on the specific design of each train, as well as the route being traveled. Trip Optimizer uses a digital track database, GPS, and advanced algorithms to achieve the desired fuel savings by automatically learning the train characteristics throughout the trip. Trip Optimizer also can be combined with a full line of fuel saving products designed by GE Transportation for the rail industry. These include Consist Manager, Auto Engine Start Stop, AccuFuel monitor, and Locotrol distributed power.
