Stadler to Provide Service for GBRf’s Class 99 Bi-Mode Locomotives

GB Railfreight (GBRf) has contracted Stadler to provide full service for up to 30 Class 99 bi-mode Co’Co locomotives.

This follows the order secured last year for Stadler to build and supply up to 30 Class 99 bi-mode Co’Co locomotives for GBRf.

These new locomotives will operate in the UK using both electric and diesel power.

Paul Patrick, Managing Director of Stadler Rail Service UK, said:

“We have established a strong foothold in the UK over recent years, and are delighted to have been awarded another Service contract, based on our proven track record and expertise in this field.

“The locomotives that Stadler will be responsible for will pave the way to a greener and more efficient rail network, supporting the industry’s ambition of promoting modal shift from road to rail. We are pleased to be supporting the government’s targets to decarbonise the UK railway by 2040, which will benefit our clients, British business and society alike.”

Under this latest contract, Stadler will be responsible for all aspects of service and maintenance of the fleet. The contract will start in 2025 once the first locomotive has been delivered, and it will last up to 16 years.

To ensure the fleet’s availability and reliability, Stadler will provide maintenance services for the vehicles at a new depot in Leicester. It will manage overhauls, spare parts, material supplies, vehicle repairs, mobile service support, data and maintenance software.
