"With this new order, our Vectron fleet will grow to a total of 111 locomotives. Our customers throughout Europe value the reliability and flexibility of the Siemens locomotive," says Junichi Kondo, CEO of MRCE.
"The long-standing trust of MRCE in Siemens shows that we have a locomotive in our portfolio that more than satisfies the requirements of European freight transport. With its fleet of DC, AC and MS locomotives, MRCE can now offer all electric versions of the Vectron," says Jochen Eickholt, CEO of the Siemens Mobility Division.
The ordered multisystem locomotives have a maximum output of 6,400 kW and a top speed of 160 km/h, and the Vectron DC has an output of 5,200 kW. Both versions are equipped with national train control systems and the MS locomotives also have the European Train Control System (ETCS).
