Order includes 40 Vectron locomotives and 15-year full service contract.

At the Transport Logistic trade fair in Munich, Siemens Mobility and the FS Italiane Group, together with its subsidiary TX Logistik AG, signed a contract for the supply of 40 Vectron locomotives.

The contract includes full maintenance for 15 years and the option to extend the maintenance to the following overhaul. An option for 25 additional locomotives has also been agreed. The locomotives will be built at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach and will be used for freight transport on the Rhine-Alpine corridor. The total value of the order is around €300 million.

“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,” said Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility.

The locomotives ordered by TX Logistik will have a top speed of 160 km/h and will 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. The Vectrons will be maintained in Railcover's network of workshops along the Rhine-Alpine corridor.
