We’re pleased to announce the purchase of 2 Vectron locomotives from new customer RDC Asset GmbH this week. The locomotives have been leased back to RDC on a long-term basis and are in operation in Germany, supporting an important service between the island of Sylt and Niebüll.
The service transporting islanders to and from Sylt has a hugely beneficial environmental impact by reducing the need for road transport with up to 26 journeys supported each day and more than 300,000 cars and trucks per year.
We welcome RDC as a new customer to Beacon and look forward to working with the team during the term of this lease.
Rob Dee, Chief Commercial Officer of Beacon, said:
“The purchase of these 2 locos fits naturally within our fleet, adding to the Vectrons Beacon already owns. We are pleased to be supporting the crucial service offered by RDC to and from Sylt.
This service supports key environmental benefits to alternative route transportation, as well as playing a key role socially and economically for the region.”
