With the average lifespan of a train currently being 30-35 years, obsolescence and the need for refurbishments to keep pace with the changing legislation, technology and passenger expectations are a challenge for every manufacturer and operator fleet.
Timely refurbishment and modifications of the rolling stock fleet with a focus on quality, maintenance and service optimization are key for operators competing with road traffic for passenger and freight transport in reducing costs and increasing safety and reliability.
The demand for shorter travel times, increased frequency and punctuality in addition to a limited capacity in parts of the railway system, puts great emphasis on the reliability of the rolling stock.
