Alpha Trains extends business in the Czech Republic
Five Siemens Vectron MS locomotives leased to ČD Cargo
On the 6th of January 2021, ČD Cargo, the largest rail freight operator in the Czech Republic, and Alpha Trains signed a leasing contract for five brand-new Siemens Vectron MS locomotives.
The locomotives will be handed over to the customer at SOKV Ústí nad Labem on the 8th of January. The contract follows a call for tenders announced at the end of last year, in which Alpha Trains’ offer prevailed. The Vectron MS locomotives will be deployed for freight operations in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Austria and Hungary.
Managing Director of Alpha Trains Locomotives Division, Fernando Perez adds: “We are glad to expand our leasing services in the Czech Republic together with Siemens Services as a maintainer and we look forward to supporting ČD Cargo in its daily cargo operations across Europe.”
