Rio Tinto places ECP braking order

9th May 2011

The equipment is to be delivered in 2011-12 for retrofitting to wagons which currently have Wabtec’s standard pneumatic brakes.

ECP provides the ability to apply brakes simultaneously throughout the train, rather than sequentially, and thus gives shorter stopping distances and reduced cycle times.
