"DB Cargo had ordered 60 locomotives from us in the summer of 2017. The signing of a new framework agreement confirms the successful completion of that project and the reliability of our locomotives," said Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
"The Vectron MS is a particularly energy-efficient locomotive that enables cross-border transport without changing locomotives. With it, DB Cargo can provide even better service for its customers on European routes," said Steffen Bobsien, Head of European Assets & Technology of DB Cargo.
The locomotives ordered by DB Cargo have a maximum output of 6.4 megawatts and a top speed of 160 km/h, and are equipped with the required national train control systems as well as the European Train Control System (ETCS).
Siemens Mobility has sold over 800 Vectrons to date to a total of 41 customers. These locomotives are authorized in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.

As a leader in transport solutions for more than 160 years, Siemens Mobility is constantly innovating its portfolio in its core areas of rolling stock, rail automation and electrification, turnkey systems, intelligent traffic systems as well as related services.
