DB Schenker Rail orders Vectrons for Italy

30 Nov 2015

ITALY: On November 30 Siemens announced a contract to supply DB Schenker Rail with eight Vectron DC electric locomotives for use  in Italy from late 2016. The freight operator will lease the 5·2 MW locomotives from Unicredit Leasing.

Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility Division, said 23 locomotives of the type had ‘already proven their worth’ in Poland, while basic approval for use Italy had already been obtained which would enable a short delivery time.
