Swedish freight operator Green Cargo has ordered six new Transmontana locomotives from Romanian manufacturer Softronic.

The new six-axle, electric Loken locos will be delivered in autumn 2019. The high power locomotives have electric braking and are designed to cope with the tough Nordic climate.

Green Cargo chief executive Jan Kilström said the new locomotives will increase capacity and lower maintenance costs.

Green Cargo ordered two Transmontana locomotives in July 2017. These are due to enter service later this year.
