Vectron locomotive fleetSiemens Mobility and FS Italiane Group, together with its subsidiary TX Logistik AG, have signed a contract for the delivery of a 40 Vectron locomotive fleet. EUR 300 million is the total value of the contract, which was signed at the Transport Logistic trade fair in Munich held in May 9 – 12, 2023.

The order includes full-service maintenance for 15 years plus an optional extension of service to the next respective revision.

The parties also agreed on an option for ordering 25 additional locomotives.

“We are especially pleased that we can now also count TX Logistik AG among our customers. With the Vectron, we are delivering a state-of-the-art, digitally networked locomotive that makes it possible to operate through five different countries stretching from the Rhine River to the Alps. Railigent X applications, part of the open, digital Siemens Xcelerator business platform, will enable condition-based, predictive maintenance of the Vectron fleet to secure its optimal reliability and availability,” Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility said.

The locomotives ordered by TX Logistik will have a top speed of 160 km/h and be equipped with the European Train Control System (ETCS) as well as the national train control systems for operation in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Italy. Maintenance of the Vectrons will be handled in the Railcover workshop network located along the Rhine-Alpine Corridor.

The Vectron locomotive fleet will be built at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach and is planned to haul freight along the Rhine-Alpine Corridor.

Recently, Siemens Mobility announced the expansion plan of Munich-Allach facility to meet the growing demand for locomotives and services. The plant will be expanded by 30,000 m2 reaching a total surface of 80,000 m2 enabling increased capacity, optimised production and logistics flows and the construction of more office spaces. Vectron production at Munich-Allach manufacturing facility started in 2010 and until now, Siemens Mobility sold 1,700  Vectrons to 63 customers in 16 countries.
