SJ has signed a contract with EuroMaint Rail to extend a maintenance contract for SJ’s passenger carriages, RC locomotives and X2 rolling stock.

The contract is estimated to be worth in the region of SEK 680 million per year and covers 350 items of rolling stock.

EuroMaint Rail’s assignment includes preventive and corrective maintenance measures, as well as mobile services for the majority of SJ’s rolling stock, including the X2000, InterCity trains and passenger carriages and RC locomotives for passenger traffic. The work will be carried out at EuroMaint Rail’s maintenance workshops throughout Sweden – from Luleå in the north to Malmö in the south.

“We are pleased that SJ has entrusted us to continue maintaining their rolling stock. This is proof that our efforts to increase the availability and reliability of their rolling stock have been appreciated. Almost 1,000 of our service technicians, engineers and other support staff have been working hard to ensure the customer has reliable rolling stock,” says Ole Kjörrefjord, CEO and President of EuroMaint.
