In Short
This locomotive is member of family Eurosprinter. It was developped in 1997-1998 by Siemens in cooperation with Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Works. The first three units were built in the Siemens factory of Wien and completed in 2000, the 17 next were mounted in China by ZELW. These locomotives haul heavy coal trains. In commercial service since 2002.

A half DJ1 is a development of Siemens ES64F1 for 25 kV 50 Hz, with only a single driver'cab. The continuous power rating is lower - 3,2 MW instead of 6,4 MW - and the body length is shorter: distance between bogie pivot is reduced from 9900 mm to 9000 mm. Two machines are permanently coupled back-to-back. DJ1 is member of the second generation of Eurosprinter: The converters are built with GTO as the first generation. Only the body seems like first generation. Each nose-suspended asynchronous motor is drived by a separate IGBT frequency converter. After upgrade of railway infrastructure, these machines could be ballasted up to 200 t, in order to have a 760 kN starting effort.
