Cutting edge maintenance methods

Alstom takes maintenance methods a step further than those merely based on routine or preventive servicing. With its innovative and patented HealthHub™, it offers a new approach to asset management through condition-based maintenance, providing greater efficiency in the overall maintenance process. The system optimises the lifecycle costs by extending the remaining useful life of all types of rail equipment, saving up to 20% in preventive maintenance labour and 15% in materials consumption. This package revolves around a series of data capture solutions which feed information in real time to plan ahead maintenance operations effectively. TrainTracer™ offers on-board real-time condition monitoring; TrainScanner™ monitors three key consumables for maintenance (wheels, brake pads and pantograph carbon strips); and TrackTracer™ and CatenaryTracer™ each monitor the condition of the relative infrastructure using tools installed on commercial trains and use predictive analytical techniques for future maintenance requirements.

Three adapted service levels

Alstom offers services within one of three contract frameworks. With a Technical support and spare supply agreement (TSSSA), the operator secures asset availability while keeping certain tasks in-house. Under a core maintenance contract, Alstom provides a fully outsourced maintenance operation to help operators meet their availability targets. And a full maintenance contract involves the client fully transferring technical risk to Alstom as the fleet maintainer, allowing the operator to concentrate on their own core business: operating a high-quality railway system.
