In 2003 the German Railways introduced new high-power 4-voltage electric locomotives of Siemens type ES64F4. Many similar locomotives have been built for private open-access operators, and DB/Railion took 100 of them: the Baureihe 189.

Locomotives 189 090-099 were sold to Mitsui (MRCE), and ACTS has leased 1 of them from this company.
