The undercarriage of the locomotive comprises two double-axle bogies with individual drive of all wheelsets. The traction motors are nose-suspended on the axles using sliding or roller bearings. The drive unit is located in the front hood of the locomotive and comprises the Caterpillar diesel engine and the Siemens traction alternator. The front hood space includes most of the auxiliary drives, the engine cooling block and the pneumatic unit. The rear hood contains an electric switchboard, or the electrodynamic brake block. The power regulation and control of the entire locomotive is ensured by the control system made by MSV elektronika with automatic speed control (ASC) function and remote diagnostics by means of GSM and GPS technologies. The locomotive is equipped with a DAKO air brake and a parking (hand) brake. The locomotive can also be equipped with an electrodynamic brake (EDB) upon request.
