Maintenance

Guaranteeing efficient and available fleets every day

Tramways, very high-speed trains, freight locomotives… for more than 20 years, we have maintained all types of trains (built by Alstom or not) in our customers’ own depots or in our own maintenance centres.

Alstom currently maintains 8371 cars, operating daily on 4 million kilometres of track.Whatever the requirements and the equipment, Alstom provides a customised service based on three fundamental principles: competent and available local teams, innovative maintenance tools and worldwide experience of rail technology.

Alstom is at the forefront of the evolution of rail services and proposes, for example, the predictive maintenance solution, Traintracer*, to monitor train conditions in real-time and optimise maintenance operations. 650 trains are connected to Traintracer, with a decrease in train immobilisation time (up to 30%) and repetitive faults (up to 50%).
