After the classes KK16 and AA16, the Egyptian National Railways ordered another 70 diesel locomotives from Henschel, which were again built under license from EMD. They were to be used for light passenger service and were therefore designed with a lower weight. The 567 series engine here had twelve cylinders and delivered 1,425 hp. In this case, four axles were enough, all of which were powered. Since high speeds were not used in lighter service, the maximum speed of 100 km/h was even lower than that of the KK16 freight locomotive. With a total length of almost 19 meters, these locomotives were the shortest of their sister series.
