In October 2013, Siemens made public that it had sold two Vectron locomotives to Paribus Rail Portfolio III GmbH & Co. KG. from Hamburg. The deal concerns former testbed locomotives 193 921 and 922. In advance, locomotive 193 922 was repainted in Aachen in the livery of lease company Railpool (with orange banner instead of the standard blue).
Paribus > Railpool will hire both locomotives to a passenger operator from Sweden, as of December 2013 with an option for a further three years.
