Siemens Mobility delivers 10 Vectron locomotives to Metrans

The locomotives will be built at Siemens Mobility’s factory in Munich-Allach, and deliveries are scheduled from the end of 2019 to spring 2020. The locomotives will be operated in cross-border freight service in Central and Eastern European countries.

"It is our pleasure to expand the Metrans vehicle fleet by ten multisystem Vectron locomotives from Siemens Mobility," said Peter Kiss, CEO Metrans Group. "This underlines our ambition to continue growing along the transport streams of the future. The acquisition of additional locomotives will help us to be even more flexible and reliable in responding to the wishes of our customers."

Roman Kokšal, CEO Siemens Mobility Czech Republic, said: "We are confident that the new Vectron locomotives enable our customer Metrans to meet current and future transportation requirements and make its long-term plans successful. The Vectron locomotives are writing a great story since their introduction on the European market and we are proud that, together with Metrans, we can celebrate the 900th Vectron sold," said

The locomotives for Metrans have a maximum output of 6.4 MW and a top speed of 160 km/h, and are equipped with the required national train control systems as well as the ETCS European Train Control System. They are certified to operate in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Future upgrades for Bulgaria, Croatia, the Netherlands, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia are possible.
