DE 18s for SPITZKE

posted on 4th Jun 2024 10:58

On 26 March 2024, SPITZKE SE and Vossloh Rolling Stock signed a contract for ten low-emission DE 18 Stage V locomotives. They are to be delivered from summer 2025 and will be used by the SPITZKE subsidiary, SLG SPITZKE LOGISTIK, where they will play a central role in domestic supply traffic for SPITZKE construction projects and in the realisation of transport services for SLG's customers in the industry. Within the SPITZKE Group, SLG SPITZKE LOGISTIK is a European rail transport company, logistics service provider and specialist waste disposal company and handles both the logistics of railway construction sites and transport by rail.

Mark Fisher, CTO at SPITZKE SE, emphasises: "Our decision in favour of the universal locomotive meets the specific need to increase our capacity for the maintenance and revitalisation of rail infrastructure. Never before has a reliable railway infrastructure been so important and the volume of challenging major projects so large as it is today. In addition to the trusting cooperation over many years and the outstanding performance values of the DE 18, the high quality of the locomotives and their flexible application options as well as the prompt delivery options were decisive factors in the decision to purchase the DE 18 from Vossloh Rolling Stock."

Spitzke already has two Vossloh-built locomotives of a dieselhydraulic Type G 18.
