  • A long-term maintenance contract of eight years for the Benelux Services sites in Rotterdam, Bruges and the depot in Antwerp

  • A maintenance service offered throughout Europe guaranteeing greater reliability, availability and flexibility for rolling stock operators

28 April 2022 – Alstom, global leader in smart mobility, has signed a long-term maintenance contract with Alpha Trains Group, one of Europe's leading rail vehicle rental companies. Under this agreement, Alpha Trains has decided to trust Alstom’s expertise and know-how to maintain part of its locomotive fleet for the next eight years on the European corridor. The collaboration started with 50 locomotives in October 2021, and thanks to the very high-performance level and quality of maintenance offered by Alstom, this figure has risen up to 70 after only a few months.

This long-term contract with Alstom allows Alpha Trains to offer greater reliability, availability and flexibility to its customers throughout Europe through preventive and corrective maintenance, long-term improvement actions and access to Alstom's mobile teams. These teams can be on site very quickly in the event of a breakdown. Alstom also has an extensive network of depots in Europe, located along the main rail freight corridors, allowing a decreased downtime of the assets and increased availability of the fleets, a crucial value for Alpha Trains' customers.

"This contract with Alpha Trains is very important for us, it is proof of our customer’s trust in our services, and we are proud to be a long-term service partner. Alstom is the world leader in rail services, and this is a win-win situation for both parties."

Frank Strik
Managing Director Services Benelux

“This contract with Alpha Trains is very important for us, it is proof of our customer’s trust in our services, and we are proud to be a long-term service partner,” explains Frank Strik, Managing Director Services Benelux. “Alstom is the world leader in rail services, and this is a win-win situation for both parties. For Alstom, this enhanced collaboration is an opportunity to optimise its relationship with Alpha Trains, and to further strengthen its maintenance services division and leverage its growing EU maintenance network. We are very proud to have been selected by Alpha Trains Group.”

“We are delighted to have entered into a framework agreement with Alstom Benelux and Alstom Germany to maintain locomotives on a full-service basis. The agreement guarantees the high maintenance quality of Alstom, enabling Alpha Trains to offer the best reliability and availability of Traxx locomotives in Western and Central Europe,” said Fernando Pérez, Managing Director of the Locomotives Division of Alpha Trains.

The collaboration between Alstom and Alpha Trains had already started, several agreements already existed at local level. But this is the first time that the two companies have signed a global long-term framework agreement for such business.
