Delivery as early as December 2013
Deployment in Sweden
Maximum power: 6,400 KW
Top speed: 200 km/h
Suitable for passenger and freight operation
The locomotives are suitable for both passenger and freight trains in single and multiple unit operation. Thanks to their modular design, they can also be converted or extended for use in different countries.
Once delivered, the two new locomotives will be heading straight for Sweden. They are both leased out for three years as of December 2013 with an option for a further three years to a private rail operator, which plans to integrate them into its high-speed passenger transport timetable.
A Siemens Vectron has already been hauling freight and passenger trains for some time as part of a trial being conducted in Scandinavia, where it has demonstrated very efficient traction under all weather conditions.
In Sweden, a freight train weighing roughly 2,300 metric tons was hauled up a six-kilometer-long 10‰ gradient. Vectron AC locomotive 193 923, which has a power rating of 6,400 kW, developed a constant speed of 40 km/h over the entire incline without the need for sanding.Follow us on Twitter:
