Alstom signs a second maintenance contract for high speed trains in Turkey
Alstom has just signed a 2,5M contract with the Turkish State Railways (TCDD) for the in-depth overhauls of 5 CAF high speed trains.
As part of its ongoing full maintenance contract of the CAF trains operated by TCDD which started in November 2012, Alstom has already performed 5 contractual overhauls (R4 types) on 5 trains. This new contract is dedicated to 5 other trains belonging to the same fleet of CAF trains operating between Ankara-Istanbul and Ankara-Konya.
These overhauls will be carried out over a period of 12 months by the local highly-trained Alstom team in the same maintenance depot, which is owned by TCDD and located in Ankara.
We have a 20-year experience in the maintenance of high speed trains. TCDD will benefit from this experience and we would like to thank them for renewing their confidence in our company, said Arban Citak, Alstom Transport Turkey General Manager.
Alstom has been contributing to the development of Turkeys railway infrastructure for over 60 years, and provides rolling stock, infrastructure, information systems, services and turnkey solutions.
