Siemens Mobility to deliver Vectron multisystem locomotives to Railpool for the first time 

“We are proud that Railpool is for the first time adding Vectron multisystem locomotives from Siemens Mobility to its fleet. Our Vectron locomotive not only stands for reliability and high performance, features that ideally meet the needs of cross-border rail transport in Europe. The name Siemens Mobility stands for customer proximity and on-time deliveries,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock of Siemens Mobility.  
Torsten Lehnert, CEO of Railpool, commented: “Our first Vectron multisystem locomotives will enable our customers to transport freight and passengers across eleven countries along the Eastern Corridor. Combined with our customary level of Railpool service quality, we will be creating an attractive offer for rail transport companies that meets their freight and passenger transport needs along one of Europe’s most important rail corridors. We at Railpool can not only flexibly and optimally serve the key transport routes in Europe, thanks to our strong fleet of more than 400 locomotives, but also maximize the availability of these locomotives by providing our full range of proven services.”
Ingo Wurzer, CFO of Railpool, added: “With our purchase of the 20 Vectron MS locomotives, we want to position Railpool even better to handle anticipated market developments, especially in Eastern Europe. Railpool believes it is especially important to provide its customers with the best possible service and flexible solutions. To ensure we can continue to do so as we grow, we’ve already made important investments this year with the support of our shareholders, and look forward now to the new locomotives that clearly meet our fleet demands: 100% modern – yet proven – electric locomotives that provide our customers with highly reliable and high-performance service.”
The Vectron MS locomotives ordered by Railpool have a maximum output of 6.4 megawatts and a top speed of 200 km/h. They are also equipped with the required national train control systems as well as the European Train Control System (ETCS).
To date, Siemens Mobility has sold over 1,100 Vectrons to a total of 56 customers. These locomotives have accumulated more than 450 million fleet kilometers in service and are certified for operating in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.
