Several railway operators have ordered twelve units of the EURO 4000 locomotives from Vossloh España to manage increasing need of freight services in Europe. These new contracts have a value of more than forty million Euros.
In particular, the French freight rail company VFLI, a subsidiary of SNCF Group in the SNCF Logistics branch, will operate eight new units. Two of them will be ordered directly at Vossloh España and six locomotives will be provided by Beacon Rail Leasing, the pan-European leasing company. Also the F
French operator Europorte will put four more locomotives into operation. “The total fleet in France will rise to 40 locomotives and underlines our long-lasting partnership with our customers,” says Inigo Parra, CEO Vossloh España.
The EURO 4000, entirely designed and manufactured by Vossloh España in Albuixech (Valencia), has been favored again. Equipped with an EMD (Electro-Motive Diesel) engine, the locomotive can handle longer and heavier freight and passenger trains at a faster speed than its competitors. These characteristics substantially increase rail operator’s efficiency and allow clients of Vossloh to be more competitive in their operation.
To date about 130 units have been sold of this model and they are operating in European countries as well as in Israel and South Africa.
