Major Milestone for Siemens Vectron Locomotive

Siemens’ Vectron Type Multi System locomotives have reached a major milestone, with private rail operator Lokomotion GmbH ordering eight units. As the 20th customer to order the Vectron, it will bring the total number of Vectrons in operation up to 300.

The locomotives will operate in Germany, Austria and Italy. Featuring a train protection system which meets European regulatory requirements, a maximum power output of 6,400 KW and a top speed of 200 km/h. The trains will also be equipped with cutting-edge ETCS making them suitable for cross-border travel between Germany and Italy.

The vehicles will be delivered from Spring 2017.

Jochen Eickholt, CEO of the Siemens Mobility Division said:

“With this order our Vectron platform has reached two significant milestones at the same time. Firstly, Lokomotion is the 20th customer who has decided in favor of our locomotive. And, secondly, this order also marks the 300th Vectron we have sold.”
