Siemens Mobility signs framework agreement with Railpool for the delivery of up to 250 locomotives

"The recent expansion of our modern fleet is taking place with a forward-looking focus on maximum operational flexibility for our customers. In addition to the multi-system locomotives for east-west traffic, we are adding further AC locomotives to our range, primarily for the Scandinavian corridor and the DACH region. Like the MS locomotives, the AC locomotives are also perfectly equipped for the upcoming ETCS expansion in Europe," said Torsten Lehnert, CEO of Railpool.
“We are especially pleased to be continuing our successful collaboration with Railpool. Follow-up orders like this show that our locomotives impress customers with their quality and outstanding operational reliability. Thanks to the Vectron’s universal usability, our customer can respond quickly and flexibly to changing market needs, and provide climate-friendly, cross-border rail transport throughout Europe,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock Siemens Mobility. 
The locomotives for Railpool have an output of 6.4 megawatts and, depending on the variant, can reach a top speed of up to 230 km/h. They are also equipped with the necessary national train protection systems as well as the European Train Control System.
Including this first call, Siemens Mobility has sold more than 2,400 locomotives from the Vectron family to 96 customers in 16 countries. To date, the fleet has covered more than 900 million kilometers. The Vectron-platform locomotives are approved for operation in 20 European countries.
