Siemens Mobility and Cargounit sign agreements for the delivery of up to 100 locomotives 

"With our Vectron locomotives, Cargounit is paving the way for sustainable and efficient cross-border rail transport in Europe. The new orders reaffirm Cargounit’s trust in one of the most modern and environmentally friendly universal locomotives available on the European market today," said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility.
“The signing of the agreements with Siemens Mobility marks another milestone for Cargounit in implementing our strategy to modernize our fleet of locomotives for freight and passenger service in Poland and elsewhere in Central and Eastern Europe. Over the past three years, we have significantly exceeded our original goals for purchasing and delivering state-of-the-art locomotives to customers in Poland, including multi-system locomotives. In the coming years, we plan to continue replacing older units with highly reliable, low-emission locomotives in line with the strategy of Cargounit and rail operators to increase sustainability in the rail sector. We are confident that Cargounit will benefit from this trend of modernizing rolling stock in Central and Eastern European countries,” said Łukasz Boroń, CEO of Cargounit.
The ordered Vectron MS locomotives have a power output of 6.4 MW in AC and 6.0 MW in DC and will be equipped with an ETCS system that complies with current Baseline 3 specifications. Plans call for Cargounit’s new Vectron MS locomotives to operate in Poland, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Bulgaria and Belgium. The Smartron locomotives will operate in Germany, Bulgaria or Romania.
To date, Siemens Mobility has sold more than 2,400 locomotives from the Vectron family to 97 customers in 16 countries. Vectron locomotives are approved for operation in 20 European countries.
