The Unipetrol Doprava transport subsidiary of petrochemical group Unipetrol has ordered three Siemens Vectron multi-system electric locomotives as part of its fleet rebewal programme. The first is scheduled to be delivered in December 2017 and the other two in spring 2018.
The 6·4 MW locomotives will be equipped with ETCS as well as national safety systems for operation in the Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Poland and Slovakia. The modular design would enable equipment for additional countries to be retrofitted if required.
Unipetrol Doprava provides haulage, consultancy and wagon leasing, repair and cleaning services for companies within and outside of its parent PKN Orlen Group.
‘Modernisation of our vehicle fleet is one of the prerequisites for meeting our medium-term plan to increase the volume of transported products from the current 3·1 million tonnes/year to 4 million tonnes/year in 2021’, said Unipetrol Doprava executive Ladislav Hlína when the locomotive order was announced on April 12.
