The new SNCB/NMBS Class 18 is a series of Siemens EuroSprinter ES60U3 locomotives. 60 were ordered in December 2006 for delivery between January 2009 and June 2010. The order is worth € 211 million (€ 3.52M apiece). On March 3, 2009, the first unit (roadnumber 1802) was officially delivered to SNCB/NMBS for test and homologation purpose. Homologation issues have delayed commercial introduction (originally planned for the summer timeschedule - May 2011).
