UNICREDIT Leasing, Germany, has awarded Siemens a contract to supply eight 3kV dc Vectron electric locomotives, which will be leased by DB Schenker Rail Italy.

The 5.2MW 160km/h units will be assembled at Siemens' Allach plant near Munich and are due to be delivered from late 2016 onwards.

DB Schenker Rail's Polish subsidiary already operates a fleet of 23 3kV dc Vectron locomotives.
