Reichmuth orders 35 Vectron locomotives for SBB Cargo

“The fact that we are again delivering locomotives for Switzerland confirms the high level of reliability and performance of our Vectron platform. Although the AC locomotives will primarily operate in Switzerland, they can also be used for cross-border service in Germany and Austria. This enables our customer to plan for the future in a long-term and flexible manner,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock of Siemens Mobility.
“With the Vectron mainline locomotives, we can increase the reliability of our most important transportation equipment and thus further enhance the quality of service for our customers,” said a delighted Désirée Baer, CEO of SBB Cargo.
“We are especially pleased that, together with LokRoll 3, we are now undertaking our third locomotive transaction in cooperation with SBB Cargo and once again relying on the high-quality Vectron AC locomotives from Siemens Mobility,” said Dr. Stefan Hasenböhler, CEO of Reichmuth & Co Investment Management AG.
Siemens Mobility has already sold 150 locomotives to Swiss customers. The new locomotives ordered for SBB Cargo will be equipped with the European Train Control System (ETCS) BL3 as well as the required national train control systems.

The locomotive is approved for operation in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland.
