MÁV-TRAKCIÓ Railway Traction Co.
On open access tracks, as well as on tracks in private use, MÁV-TRAKCIÓ Co. provides traction and other related (supplementary) services to business partners in a contractual relationship with the Company, with a view to running trains for passenger transport, freight transport or other – e.g. track construction – purposes.
A typical feature of rail traffic is that only a single group of railway vehicles, i.e. traction vehicles, have the machinery in place that is necessary for hauling themselves and any other vehicles attached (i.e., for overcoming the resistance of vehicles to forward motion). During the history of railway development several locomotive types were born.
On 1 January 2008, MÁV-TRAKCIÓ Railway Traction Private Company Limited by Shares was established. The Company aims to provide modern and competitive services to its business partners and clients, as well as to improve the quality of its services on an ongoing basis. We intend to retain our key role in meeting the traction demands of Hungarian railway companies.
