MRCE orders Vectron Locomotives

13.10.2015
  • Further ten Vectron AC and eleven Vectron MS
  • Three locomotives have just been delivered
  • MRCE owns 56 Vectron locomotives

The locomotive leasing and service company Mitsui Rail Capital Europe B.V. (MRCE) has ordered 21 additional Vectron locomotives from Siemens. Ten of these locomotives are of the AC version for operation in Germany and Austria.

The other eleven locomotives are equipped as multi-system locomotives and will be operated in Germany, Austria and Italy. All Vectron locomotives will be manufactured in the Munich-Allach locomotive production plant. The first three locomotives were pre-produced and have already been handed over to MRCE by Siemens. With this new order MRCE will now own a fleet of 56 Vectron locomotives.

Masayoshi Hosoya, CEO of MRCE, said: "We have been providing multi-system cross border locomotives to our clients since 2007. With this new order of Vectron multi-system locomotives we are able to respond to our customers' needs with much greater flexibility."

"This new order from MRCE shows that we have one locomotive in our portfolio - the Vectron - that more than meets the demands of our customers in their day-to-day operations. And by keeping locomotives on stock we are able to fulfill orders even faster. This is a unique selling point in the industry," said Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility Division.

The ordered locomotives are due to be deployed in cross-border services between Germany and Austria, and between Germany, Austria and Italy. In addition to the national train protection systems, all these vehicles will be equipped with the European Train Control System (ETCS). The locomotives have a maximum power output of 6,400 kW and a top speed of 160 km/h.
