Akiem Traxx DC  

In August 2014, French leasing company Akiem made public that they had ordered ten Traxx DC locomotives with Bombardier. An option was taken for ten more. This option was exercised in the months that followed. Total value of the contract is approximately 65 million euro. In 2016 five more locomotives were ordered, bringing the total to 25.

In 2015 Bombardier started the production of first TRAXX DC's for Akiem in its Italian factory in Vado Ligure. At the end of October the first locomotive was ready, being the designated Akiem 483 301. The locomotives with the Italian package are numbered as 483 3xx series. The five units that go to Poland get a Polish style NVR designation: 5170 060-064.


Railcolor also created a special gift for Captrain Italia, when they celebrated their 10th anniversary:
