Cargounit orders up to 30 locomotives
from Siemens Mobility

“We are especially pleased to have received our largest Vectron MS order from Poland to date. With this order, Cargounit is investing in one of the most modern and at the same time most environmentally friendly universal locomotive available on the European market today,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility. “Thanks to their modular design, the locomotives offer operators maximum flexibility for sustainable, cross-border transport.”
“The Cargounit strategy is based on dynamic development through investments in modern electric locomotives. The purchase of Vectron MS locomotives, which are the core of multisystem locomotive fleets operated by leading national and private carriers, fits perfectly into our company’s development plans. International transport, especially in the intermodal segment, is the fastest growing segment of the market. The Vectron MS locomotives are a proven and valued platform for multisystem locomotives and are approved by many European countries. One important aspect when choosing a supplier of multisystem locomotives was the ability to quickly deliver fully homologated locomotives to meet the current needs of our customers,” said Łukasz Boroń, President of the Management Board of Cargounit.
The ordered multisystem locomotives have a maximum output of 6.4 megawatts and a top speed of 200 km/h. They are equipped with the required national train control system as well as the European Train Control System (ETCS).  
To date, Siemens Mobility has sold more than 1,114 Vectron locomotives, including 736 Vectron MS units, to 56 customers in 16 countries. The Vectron fleet has so far accumulated more than 490 million kilometers in service. The locomotives based on the Vectron platform are approved for operation in 20 European countries.
