Finland's VR Group has chosen Stadler for the delivery of new diesel locomotives. The operator has ordered 60 dual-engine single-cab diesel locos with an option for another 100 locos. The agreement is to be finalized in April 2019 and includes an option for maintenance support by Stadler.
A more environmental friendly, fuel-efficient and reliable fleet will be introduced in 2022 with the delivery of the first locos. In 2025, all 60 locos should have been delivered, replacing diesels from the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's.
