Siemens Mobility modernizes Montreal’s Exo train fleet with sustainable locomotives

MONTREAL–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Siemens Mobility has been awarded a contract by Montreal exo to design, manufacture and commission 10 Charger locomotives, the industry-leading sustainable platform that meets stringent Tier 4 standards in matter of emissions. This is Siemens Mobility’s second order for Charger locomotives in Canada and will replace the older locomotives in the exo fleet with a modern, more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly locomotive. The Charger locomotives will also provide exo with a quieter and more reliable fleet which will improve the passenger experience. In addition to the manufacturing contract, there is an option for a spare parts supply contract.

“We are delighted to partner with exo and look forward to working with them to modernize their fleet with the latest sustainable and smart rail technologies. Our industry-leading locomotives will provide exo and its passengers with a sustainable travel option as well as an enjoyable, safe and reliable travel experience,” said Yves Desjardins-Siciliano, CEO of Siemens Mobility in Canada. “This important project builds on our work to help Canadian cities modernize their public transit infrastructure to meet the growing demand for transportation in a modern, safe and sustainable way.

With low fuel consumption, the ability to run on biodiesel and meeting the toughest Tier 4 emissions standards, the Charger is the most durable passenger locomotive in the industry. It features a 95% reduction in particulates and an 89% reduction in emissions compared to existing Tier 0 locomotives. With over 300 locomotives ordered since 2010 and 95 currently in revenue service, the Charger locomotive is the market leader in its segment.
