ÖBB has ordered 61 Vectron MS locomotives from Siemens Mobility. With this order, ÖBB is calling a further option from the framework contract signed in January 2017 for the delivery of up to 200 locomotives. This now brings the total number of Vectrons ordered to date to 108. The locomotives will be operated by Rail Cargo Group, the freight division of ÖBB, and are planned for cross-border freight service in several European countries. The locomotives will be built at München works and deliveries will begin in March 2020. Siemens Mobility has already sold over 800 Vectrons to a total of 42 customers.
