Alpha Trains ordered from Siemens Mobility 15 additional Vectron MS locomotives, part of a framework agreement signed in November 2021. With these new locomotives, the European rolling stock leading company provides its customers with more than 65 Vectron locomotives and increases the Alpha Trains locomotive fleet to 463 units from a wide range of manufacturers, series and homologations for 21 European countries.
“The recent purchase of these additional Vectron MS locomotives underlines our strong and long-term partnership with Siemens Mobility. The reliable Vectron platform in combination with our attractive leasing offers enables our customers to perform flexible and reliable transports”, Fernando Pérez, Managing Director of the Locomotives Division of Alpha Trains said.
The new Vectron MS locomotives with a maximum power of 6.4 megawatts and a top speed of 200 km/h complement the existing Alpha Trains fleet of Vectron AC and Vectron Dual Mode models. The Vectrons will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach.
