"In test runs, the locomotive's technical parameters have proven convincing. It also scored points with its intuitive operation, uncomplicated ordering process and manageable delivery times," says Mathias Tenisson, CEO of EGP.
"We premiered the Smartron in March. The fact that we've just received the first order from EGP shows that we have a compelling concept: The new Smartron offers our customers a powerful and reliable locomotive that is configured for defined operations, making it possible to set a simple purchase process. One standard version, one standard contract, one price – that's the idea behind the Smartron," says Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility Division.
EGP decided on a financing solution from the Financial Services Division of Siemens (Siemens Financial Services).
The Smartron is based on proven components of the Vectron. Siemens is also showcasing the Smartron at the InnoTrans 2018, the international trade fair for transport technology being held in Berlin on September 18-21. The company is again presenting its highlights in Hall 4.2 and in the outdoor exhibition area.
