The GT46ACS was specifically designed with the harsh environment of the Middle East and Northern Africa in mind. This locomotive features an advanced filtration and cooling system, helping withstand the heat and sand of the desert environment. This locomotive also features the EM2000™ Microprocessor Control System, Automatic Engine Start Stop (AESS™) and the 16-cylinder, 4,300 THP 16-710G3C-ES engine.
