These engines currently belong to ZBH (Bosnia Herzegovina railways) and are rented by TCDD. They are of ZBH type 1143, which is a renovation of former JZ (Yugoslavian railways) engines type 441. Koncar carried out this renovation in Zagreb on the same design as HZ (Croatian Railways) type 1141.3. Koncar originally assembled these engines in the late 60's, early 70's by licensing the ASEA type Rb and their diode rectifier design. During the renovation, the diodes were replaced by a thyristor rectifier, thus the 1143 became cousins of ASEA type Rc.
During renovation, the body remained unchanged and is almost identical to the original Swedish design. It can be easily recognized in all the countries where these locomotives were exported (Yugoslavia, Romania, Norway, USA, …)
These locomotives were withdrawn from TCDD on April 3, 2011 upon finish of the lease contract.
