Clayton Equipment secure third emission free shunting locomotive for large multi-function nuclear site in the UK

Clayton Equipment, the only British independent locomotive manufacturer in the UK capable of designing and manufacturing locomotives up to 150 tonnes, has agreed an additional contract to supply an innovative CB40 locomotive to Sellafield Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority.

The Clayton Equipment CB40 locomotive is a 40 tonne 0-4-0 battery locomotive. The locomotive is self-contained, with on board battery charging. Battery charging is undertaken from a 3-phase supply, providing 100% maximum emission free solutions.

Fitted with a large battery, the CB40 has low operational and maintenance costs, is capable of long-range use without recharging, in addition the regenerative braking ensures reduced brake wear and reduced charging times.


This order follows the recent supply of two hybrid CBD80 tonne locomotives to Sellafield Ltd as part of their investment in greener technology.

Clive Hannaford, Managing Director at Clayton Equipment, said: “We are very pleased with this new order to supply Sellafield Ltd with sustainable, low emission, environmentally compliant equipment which meets their commitment to invest in technology and provide cost savings with long term durability.”
