CFI Vectron  
The Italian private railway operator Compagnia Ferroviaria Italiana S.p.A. (CFI) has awarded Siemens a contract for two Vectron DC locomotives. It is the first order from Italy for Vectron with a shunting module and the second order placed at Siemens by CFI. The vehicles will be built at the Siemens plant in Munich-Allach and delivered to the customer in the second half of 2014.

With a driving power of 5.2 megawatt Vectron DC operates at a maximum speed of 160 kilometers per hour. The contract awarded by CFI is the first which Siemens has received for its Vectron DC locomotives with shunting module. CFI is one of the most experienced and emerging companies for freight traffic in Italy and is already a Siemens customer having ordered two ES64U4 locomotives in 2011 (Railcolor: E190 321 and 322, see second picture).

The Vectron fleet has already traveled more than two million kilometers. Siemens was already able to sell more than 130 Vectron locos to nine international customers so far. The biggest order (80 locomotives Vectron AC) has been placed by Finnish Railways VR just recently – those also being equipped with shunting modules.

The Vectron locomotives are based on a technical platform. This concept enables Siemens to design and manufacture vehicle variants such as single system or multi system locomotives according to customer-specific requirements within a short time. The locomotives are prepared for implementation of a shunting module, which can be added in a second step. The shunting module allows for operation on non-electrified track sections (“last mile operation”). - Siemens
