In mid-July, the largest Czech rail freight carrier ČD Cargo and Siemens Mobility Czech Republic signed a contract for the purchase of ten interoperable multi-system electric locomotives, Siemens Vectron MS (variant A54), which have a maximum operating speed of 160 km/h.

"We have long had a good experience with Siemens Vectron locomotives at the head of our trains. Their purchase enabled us to fulfil one of the four strategic pillars of ČD Cargo, namely expansion abroad. We want to use the new locomotives to transport trains in other countries with interesting potential - the Netherlands and Belgium," says Tomáš Tóth, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ČD Cargo, a.s., and adds, "Ports are particularly interesting for us."

"We are delighted that ČD Cargo will welcome more Siemens Vectron locomotives to its fleet. The current locomotives will be joined by ten vehicles in the multi-system variant. It is the first Czech customer to have Vectron locomotives with homologation for Belgium in its locomotive fleet," added Roman Kokšal, CEO of Siemens Mobility Czech Republic.

The locomotives for ČD Cargo will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach and handed over to the customer in stages from the second half of 2024. The locomotives have the uniform European Train Control System ETCS Level 2 Baseline 3 and are approved for operation in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Austria and Slovakia.

ČD Cargo already operates 12 of its own Vectron MS locomotives (A01 variant) within its fleet, has additional locomotives on lease and at the end of last year ordered two Vectron AC locomotives with Diesel Power Module (DPM), which will be delivered in 2023. In total, it will own 24 Siemens Vectron locomotives.
