In 1997, former Danish State Railways, now Railion Denmark A / S, placed an order for 13 high-performance locomotives for cross-border service. The locomotives are used for freight trains on the land link that connects Sweden to Germany via Denmark and form the basis for fast pan-European freight operations between Central Europe and Scandinavia. The adhesion mass of 132 tons provides sufficient traction for 2,000-ton trains on 15.6‰ ramps in all weather conditions.
