The Vectron locomotives will be built at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach and will be used to haul freight along the Rhine-Alpine Corridor.

They will travel at speeds of up to 160km/h and will be equipped with the European Train Control System (ETCS) as well as the national train control systems for  Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Italy.

Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility said:

“We are especially pleased that we can now also count TX Logistik AG among our customers. With the Vectron, we are delivering a state-of-the-art, digitally networked locomotive that makes it possible to operate through five different countries stretching from the Rhine River to the Alps. Railigent X applications, part of the open, digital Siemens Xcelerator business platform, will enable condition-based, predictive maintenance of the Vectron fleet to secure its optimal reliability and availability.”

The new Vectron locomotives will be delivered to FS Italiane’s TX Logistik from September 2024 to December 2025.
