Based on the list price, the two firm orders are valued at a combined total of €112M (US$128M).

Scheduled for delivery between 2019 and 2021 at the latest, the 33 TRAXX locomotives will consist of a mix of TRAXX MS 2 (multi-system), TRAXX AC 3 (alternating current) and TRAXX DC3 (direct current) locomotives.

 

Fabien Rochefort, CEO of Akiem Group, said, “This additional batch of 33 TRAXX locomotives meets our customers’ demand across Europe. With a fleet of 180 TRAXX locomotives by 2020, we are strengthening our ability to deliver reliable, efficient, safe and cost-effective traction services expected by both passenger and freight operators.

 

"This partnership with Bombardier Transportation enables our industrial teams to design and deliver tailor-made services and maintenance solutions across Europe. We are making our Group a major long-term, reliable partner and added value provider for the railway transport industry in Europe.”

Peter Ammann, Head of Ecosystem Freight Corridors, Bombardier Transportation, added, “We are very pleased to have received these additional locomotive orders from Akiem, further strengthening our partnership with this important customer.

 

"We introduced our versatile TRAXX locomotives platform 18 years ago and since then have continuously innovated and improved its features. With over 2,200 units sold, the platform has demonstrated its success."

 

The three models, TRAXX AC3, TRAXX MS3 and TRAXX DC3, offer optional "Last Mile" function - a support diesel engine which bridges non-electrified sections.

 

The TRAXX MS locomotive can operate on Europe’s four main rail supply voltages – 15 kV and 25 kV AC as well as 1.5 and 3 kV DC.

 

Akiem Group is a major player in locomotive leasing and related services in Europe and has its own maintenance affiliate, MGW Service. The company has around 50 customers operating freight or passenger services in most European countries.
