European Locomotive Leasing Group have signed another framework agreement for the delivery of 50 Vectron locomotives. The first locomotives from this new agreement have already been ordered and delivery will begin in the second quarter of 2016. In 2014, European Locomotive Leasing Group had signed its first framework agreement with Siemens for 50 locomotives, and all these locomotives have already been delivered or ordered.

The first European Locomotive Leasing Vectrons called up in this new agreement are planned for cross-border operation between Romania and the Netherlands, along the western corridor from the Netherlands to Italy, from Germany to Romania via Austria and Hungary, as well as within Germany, Austria and Hungary. The new framework agreement enables European Locomotive Leasing Group to also order locomotives for the corridor to Scandinavia in addition to the models ordered previously.

The locomotives have a maximum output of 6,400 KW and a top speed of 200 km/h. The agreement also includes an option to order electric locomotives with Diesel Power Modules.

The European Locomotive Leasing Vectron fleet has already accumulated more than 35 million kilometres of service.

The locomotives are authorised for operation in Germany, Bulgaria, Croatia, Norway, Austria, Poland (first European Locomotive Leasing Vectron MS since 17th May 2016), Romania, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Turkey.
