Belgorail completed successfully DeBo assessment for DB Cargo on first Vectron Locomotive in Belgium
Vectron trainsets were developed by Siemens Mobility from their headquarters located in Munich, Germany. They were designed following the latest and sharp-edge standards.
This rolling stock was ordered by more than 40 customers across Europe, including Danish state railways, Austrian Federal Railways and more recently by DB Cargo Belgium. Belgorail was appointed by the later as a DeBo Belgium to carry out certification works towards Belgian Notified National Technical Rules. (NNTRs)
It is worth noting that this is the first time ever a Vectron trainset is authorized to run on the Belgian network.
