Alstom wins $132.5M Swedish contract

Posted on June 21, 2010

Stockholmståg, the company operating commuter trains in the greater Stockholm area, in Sweden, awarded Alstom Transport with a maintenance contract worth approximately $132.5 million over a five-year period, for the maintenance of a fleet of 135 suburban trains.

The contract includes the full maintenance of 71 Coradia Nordic trains Alstom has already supplied to Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) and the maintenance of 12 Coradia Nordic trains scheduled for delivery in 2012. The deal also covers the maintenance of 52 older types of commuter trains manufactured by ASEA.

Optimization of maintenance regime and presence of corrective technicians in traffic care points will improve fleet availability and performance. Besides, an Alstom fleet management team will work in the customer control center using TrainTracer. The addition of TrainTracer to a train's control system makes it possible to generate by radio transmission an almost continuous flow of data on the condition of major components.
