More Vectron locomotives for Alpha Trains
Luxembourg/Antwerp, 14. November 2022 - Alpha Trains, Europe’s largest leasing company for locomotives and trains, has ordered 15 additional Vectron locomotives. The locomotives have been called from the existing framework agreement with Siemens Mobility, signed in November 2021.
With this latest order, Alpha Trains provides its customers with more than 80 Vectron locomotives and increases the Alpha Trains Locomotives fleet to 478 and with homologations for 21 European countries.
The new Vectron MS and AC locomotives with a maximum power of 6.4 megawatts and a top speed of 200 km/h complement the existing Alpha Trains fleet of Vectron MS, AC and Vectron Dual Mode models. The Vectrons will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach.

There is a growing demand among our existing and new customers for efficient and state-of-the-art multisystem locomotives. With this latest order, we can ensure that our customers have the highest possible operational flexibility on all their routes, as they can be operated in up to 18 countries.” said Fernando Pérez, Managing Director of the Locomotives Division of Alpha Trains.
