Siemens Mobility to deliver Vectron ‘multisystem’ locomotives to RailpoolRailpool, one of Europe’s leading rail vehicle rental companies, has ordered 20 Vectron MS ‘multisystem’ locomotives from Siemens Mobility.

The locomotives are intended for service in 11 countries along the ‘Eastern Corridor’ (Germany, Austria, Poland, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia).

The locomotives will be delivered in several phases beginning in March 2022. Railpool’s fleet is currently comprised of more than 400 trains. When deliveries of this first order for ‘multisystem’ locomotives from Siemens Mobility are completed, Railpool will have 53 of the company’s trains.

Torsten Lehnert, Railpool’s CEO, said: “Our first Vectron multisystem locomotives will enable our customers to transport freight and passengers 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.”

Ingo Wurzer, Railpool’s CFO, 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.”

The Vectron MS trains ordered by Railpool have a maximum output of 6.4MW and a top speed of 200kph. 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.
