"Our new Smartron offers our customers a powerful and reliable locomotive delivered in a fixed standard design that simplifies the purchasing process. As a preconfigured locomotive, the Smartron enables our customers to operate cost-effectively with a high degree of availability," said Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
"With the addition of the Siemens Mobility's Smartron locomotives to the northrail fleet, we are taking another big step towards an intelligent and resource-saving locomotive fleet," said Dr. Volker Simmering, CEO of Paribus Holding GmbH & Co. KG and managing partner of northrail GmbH. "We're especially pleased that TX Logistik has decided to become the first lessee of this reliable locomotive based on proven technology."
The Smartron is based on proven components of the Vectron, a locomotive that has already demonstrated its reliability in over 180 million operating kilometers covered by more than 600 delivered units. The Smartron is designed for 15-kV AC voltage systems and is equipped with the PZB/LZB train control system. The locomotive is delivered in the standard color of "Capri Blue."
