Customer no.23 is here: Bulgarian logistics company PIMK has purchased two Vectron locomotives from Siemens. First one delivered is 'Medium Power' Vectron 192 962, formerly used by Siemens for tests and promotion.
On 29.04.2016 the machine left Munich, heading for Hungary. The white machine has blue roofs and blue PIMK logos. It sports the name 'Kalina'. The destination displays on 962 have disappeared.
Many ask us, what are the main differences between a Vectron from the 192 series and one from the 193 series? The 193 can be an AC or a multi system electric, but in both configurations it has a maximum power rating of 6.4MW. The 192 has 'only' 5.6MW to its disposal. The maximum speed of a 192 is 160 kph, where the 193 can be 160 or 200 kph.
