Big Savings Come in Small Packages for Idle Reduction

When it comes to locomotive APU systems, size does matter. 


The PowerHouse from Power Drives is a compact and revolutionary idle reduction technology with rock-solid reliability. The units are designed to significantly reduce the fuel wasted through locomotive engine idling, saving fuel costs, emissions and engine noise.  


The PowerHouse heats and circulates water or coolant through the locomotive engine block and cooling system to maintain a temperature above 100 degrees F, even in the harshest, coldest temperatures. The unit is available as a diesel-powered APU version with a durable Tier 4 compliant Kubota engine, or as a 120/240 VAC version operating from an external power source, pictured below:
