In 2005, AB Lietuvos geležinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways) and Siemens signed a contract for the production of 44 ER20 CF locomotives based on Siemens Eurorunner family. The new locomotives significantly updated the Lithuanian rail fleet which resulted in much lower fleet maintenance costs. Before the ER20 CF was introduced to Lithuanian Railways, the average age of freight locomotives in the fleet was 21 years. Without a doubt, the new Eurorunner is incomparably more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly compared with older locomotives.
