Our purchasing volume, independence from manufacturers, and our expertise and experience let us negotiate locomotive acquisition contracts, and we pass on that performance to our customers.
The Akiem fleet comprises locomotives and shunters from a number of manufacturers: Bombardier, Siemens, Alstom, Vossloh, EMD and Fauvet-Girel.
Investment programmes for new locomotives are regularly carried out. In 2016, for example, we signed a contract for 44 DE18 diesel locomotives and 52 electric Traxx (BR 186 Traxx MS, BR187 Traxx AC3). In 2018, we signed a sale and leaseback contract for 45 electric Traxx (BR 186 TRAXX MS).
Since end-2015, over 125 new locomotives have entered the Akiem fleet. We offer you our experience and expertise.
Our engineers support you at each project stage to bring you the railway innovation you need. They advise you and work with you to find the best solutions for your locomotive configuration and maintenance, whether for an Akiem fleet or an external fleet.
We also assist you with restructuring and refinancing your existing fleets.
