Siemens Vectron  
On 29.06.2010, Siemens officially revealed its new Vectron platform, locomotives that have to guide Siemens into a new era, the era of flexibility rather than multifunctionality.

The development of the Vectron started back in 2006. There are three main reasons why Siemens decided to (or better: had to) built a complete new concept:

1 - The current models (2010) for electric locomotives that Siemens offers are the EuroSprinters ES 64 F4 and ES 64 U4. Both were developed for one specific customer, the German and the Austrian railways to be more precise. They comply to the specific demands of these two operators. However, they lack the flexibility that many other customers (smaller open-access operators and lease companies) desire. Theoretically being able to run in every country in Europe doesn't bring much for these customers, it makes the F4 and U4 expensive and stuffed with a lot of equipment that is never of rarely used. Siemens tried do down-trade the F4 and U4, but it was not a success. The market nowadays asks for machines that only just does that what's needed at that time. And when the service domain changes, a locomotive should be easy the adjust to its new environment. Flexibility has replaced multifunctionality. With the F4 and U4 Siemens has to search for customers that fit the machine's properties, in stead of offering a product that everyone could use. With EuroSprinter family, Siemens has no answer on the Traxx AC from Bombardier for example, nor the Traxx DC, popular models at this moment. With the Vectron, Siemens should be able to compete with the Traxx platform again, as well as the also newborn PrimaII platform from Alstom.

2 - Siemens also needed to take a next step as legislation and technical requirements progress. Driver safety, emission standards are getting more strict every year and there will be a moment that the EuroSprinters do not meet the standards anymore. When tha moment arrives, the Vectron should be there to take over.

3 - Don't forget that the development of the F4 started almost 10 years ago, back in 2000. In the mean time, also the technical possibilities have improved. Technically, there is more possible now, everything is more mature. Also the Vectron is a technical upgrade, everything up to date again.

Remarkable features

Driver Table design: For the Vectron, Siemens decided to hire industrial designers to reconsider the driver table set up. There are two base versions of the desk, a 'low' version, as shown in picture 1, installed in the AC-prototype and a 'high' version as installed in the MS-prototype, see picture 2. Which version to choose depends on the question how many detection systems are on board and how many displays/modules are needed to supervise them. When a locomotive with a low driver desk is being adjusted and more systems are added, Siemens will replace the complete table by a high version, instead of adding separate modules.

High impact cab: Since the introduction of the LE4700 series for the Portuguese railways in 2006, Siemens has a cab module, meeting all up to date TSI crash standards for railway vehicles. There was no need for a redesign (it differs only on details like a smaller grid up front for cooling), giving the Vectron a familiar face. The cab module can be (de)mounted very quickly. The opening for the screen wash reservoir (the black cap) is now on the outside. In the current models you can find this feature inside the cabin, resulting in being used as urine reservoir...

Bogies: All Vectron configurations will have the same bogie design. Its technology is based on the 'Ritzhohlwelle' concept, already used for the EuroRunner models. Customers can order a 160 or a 200 kph version. Siemens experiences that the market requires a base version that can be used for both freight and passenger services when needed, so 160 kph is than the absolute minimum. With the current ES 64 F4 and its 'Tatzlager' propulsion bogies for 140 kph Siemens can not offer a suitable solution. When required, Siemens can adjust the top speed of 'Ritzhohlwelle' bogies, without exchanging them completely. This would approximately take one week.

Cab windows: Remarkable is that the Vectron has no cab side windows anymore. As the Vectron has back facing cameras in stead of mirrors, Siemens marked such windows being redundant.

Siemens Vectron: presentation Wegberg-Wildenrath 29.06.2010  

After a general presentation in Dusseldorf, Siemens invited the press to visit its Wegberg-Wildenrath test center for a first direct confrontation with the new Vectron. Inside, the white painted Vectron prototype no.2 was parked, accompanied by MRCE-Dispolok ES 64 P-001 and three Siemens demonstrators: Siemens ER 20-2007, Siemens E 189 840 and 183 701. Also, all main pillars of the current Siemens' locomotive program (all in a common white and silver livery) were available to the press and, one day later, also for potential customers. The Vectron got all the attention, but of course, with some serious homologation, certification and fine-tuning processes ahead, the current EuroSprinter and EuroRunner platforms still have to push the sales numbers for the upcoming time. The presence of the ES 64 P-001 'Werner von Siemens' was more or less symbolical.

On presentation day, many different, interesting locomotives and trainsets were present at the Wegberg test center. Several Desiro-UK train sets for First ScotRail, several Desiro-ML sets for the Belgian railways; 189 series locomotives for DB Schenker, ES 64 F4s, old and new for MRCE Dispolok, some Spinter train sets for the Dutch railways. An IranRunner was hidden in between the stacked ES 64 F4. Although many class 18 locomotives for the Belgian railways were transported away from Wegberg in the weeks before the presentation day, still some 15 units were standing around in Wegberg.

Siemens Vectron: Innotrans 2010  
From 21.09.2010 to 26.09.2010, the international Trade Fair Innotrans 2010 was held in Berlin. During this event the Vectron made its real debute. Soon it was clear that Siemens did not tell us the complete story during the Wegberg-Wildenrath press and customer day, two three months before... There was still more to come... Three days bfore the fair was officially openend, the Vectron-armada arrived in Berlin. As promised in Wegberg, four units would represent the new platform, but some things were strange. Why were all fronts covered with psychedelic plastic? One unit did not have pantographs, and, the two units we alreay knew, 193 901 and 921, were not part of the group...

surprise no.1: new front design
When the tape came of, redesigned front hatches and lamp fittings were revealed. Siemens did put some extra effort in giving the new platform a little more an identity of its own. The headlights are now placed into silver painted light houses, the front hatch now has a serious grill, with 8 openings, reminding us a bit about Scania trucks. The frame ends also changed. From now on we know exaclty if we are dealing with a Vectron or not, as the name is perforated in the frame end above every right buffer.

surprise no.2: the Vectron Diesel
In Wegberg, Siemens did say that a diesel-electric version of the Vectron would be possible, but that this was something for the distant future... But the future was near! At Innotrans 2010 Siemens presented to Vectron-DE, unit no. 247 901, as a surprise for all customers and competitors. Its body is approximately 1 meter longer that the electric version, but the overal design is very similar. The Vectron-DE can be delivered with power outputs ranging from 2000 to 2400 kW. The unit at the fair had a MTU 16V 4000 R84 engine, rated at 2 400 kW. With this engine, the Vectron-DE meets Euro Stage IIIB emissions regulations.

The Vectron-DE is available for both freight and passenger services. The 247 901 at the fair more or less had the passenger-configuration, with destination displays integrated in both front hatches.

surprise no.3: another 4 prototypes!
With the four new Innotrans-prototypes, Siemens had six locomotives at its disposal for testing and homologation projects. Two Multi-System units to run accross Europe (193 901 and 902), two units for alternating current voltage systems, important for corridors towards Scandinavia and Eastern Europe (193 921 and 922), one machine for the Polish and Italian domestic markets (191 951) and diesel-Vectron.

The ambitions of Siemens are very clear, they will no longer watch from the sideline, to see Bombardier getting awarded with all important orders, as happened in the past decade. With the Vectron, Siemens has the exact same four base configurations as Bombardiers has developed for its Traxx family, MS, AC, DC and DE.

base configurations of the first six Vectron locomotives, as presented in 2010:

number configuration details
193 901 MS - 200 kph - high power (6,4 MW AC / 5,2 MW DC) all main European ATP systems on board
193 902 MS - 200 kph - high power (6,4 MW AC / 5,2 MW DC) fitted with the ATP-system cabinet from Alstom
193 921 AC - 200 kph - high power (6,4 MW AC)  
193 922 AC - 200 kph - high power (6,4 MW AC) fitted with the ATP-system cabinet from Siemens
191 951 DC - 160 kph - 5,2 MW DC at Innotrans with automatic couplers
247 901 DE - 160 kph - MTU 16V 4000R84 diesel engine 2,4 MW destination display
