KfW IPEX-Bank and HSH Nordbank have, in conjunction with Crédit Agricole, committed to finance 40 additional electric locomotives for the Railpool Group. The total order volume amounts to EUR 150 million. In providing this financing, the banks are supporting and promoting the further growth of the Railpool Group for the coming years. All three banks involved acted as mandated lead arrangers (MLAs) with respect to this financing.
Railpool rents out rail vehicles, locomotives and multiple units to railway operators in Europe, both with and without full-service package. The joint venture, which was founded in 2008, has already secured a strong foothold in the market over the last few years and is continuing to strengthen its position as one of the leading asset managers in the rail transport sector.
