One year after the contract signature, in December 2023, Vossloh Rolling Stock will start rolling the first DE18 Stage V locomotives, 40 of which were ordered by ROSCO Nexrail. These locomotives, equipped with PZB ATP, will be operational across Germany, which means the list of lessees is exclusively from this country.
- 2x Leonhard Weiss
2x Rail Bavaria Logistik
2x Netzwerkbahn Sachsen (NES)
1x Lausitz Energie Bergbau AG (LEAG)
5x BBL Logistik
According to Nexrail, the remaining seven locomotives will soon get their lease contract.
The ROSCO also ordered thirty DE 18 Stage V SmartHybrid locomotives, which are aimed to be approved for France, Belgium and Luxembourg and scheduled for delivery in H2 / H3 2024.
