Beacon Rail orders 10 Vectron locomotives from Siemens Mobility

Beacon Rail has ordered 10 Vectron MS multi-system locomotives from Siemens Mobility. Beacon Rail plans to have the locomotives operate along the Rhine-Alpine corridor and between the North Sea ports and the European hinterland. This order will give Beacon Rail an overall portfolio of 170 Vectron locomotives.

“We are especially pleased about the order from Beacon Rail. Their trust in us shows that our Vectron locomotives stand for reliability and flexibility in European passenger and freight transport. With the Vectron MS, cross-border operations are possible from the North Sea to the Alps without changing locomotives,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock of Siemens Mobility.

Adam Cunliffe, CEO Beacon Rail said:

“Beacon Rail is delighted that, following its recent acquisition of Mitsui Rail Capital Europe, it has ordered 10 additional Vectron locomotives to support the company’s commitment to the European 4-axle electric rail freight and passenger markets. Beacon looks forward to further enhancing its relationship with Siemens Mobility.”

The ordered multi-system locomotives have a maximum power at wheel of 6.4 megawatts and a top speed of 160 km/h. The locomotives will be manufactured at the Siemens Mobility plant in Munich-Allach. They are equipped with the European train control system ETCS Baseline 3 as well as the required national train control systems.

Beacon Rail is the 67th customer for the Vectron. To date, Siemens Mobility has sold more than 1,850 Vectron locomotives and the fleet has covered over 800 million kilometers. The Vectron is approved for operation in 20 European countries.
