SJ extended the maintenance contract and signed an agreement with Euromaint for the reprocessing of the bogies for SJ’s passenger carriages and X2000. The agreement starts on the 1st March 2016.

Before the summer SJ renewed its confidence in Euromaint to maintain their X2000 vehicles and passenger carriages. SJ has now chosen to expand the agreement to also cover component maintenance and reprocessing bogies for the vehicle types.

"It is very pleasing, of course, that SJ has extended its confidence in us to maintain the X2000 and passenger carriages. Our aim is to contribute to further improvement in the punctuality and availability of SJ's vehicles. By taking a more comprehensive responsibility for the vehicles, we get more efficient coordination and can contribute by developing the collaboration even more and therefore maintain high quality and delivery capacity", says Ove Bergkvist, CEO at Euromaint.

The bogie assignment covers everything from revision to corrective maintenance and is carried out at Euromaint's component workshop in Örebro.

Euromaint's reprocessing of bogies in Örebro is the largest in Sweden and just over a year ago the flow was made even more efficient. The company rebuilt the workshop and concentrated operations under one roof. The changes mean shortened through-put times, increased quality and more efficient operations, something that benefits both SJ and the company's other customers.

"Euromaint has long experience and high levels of expertise and meets our high requirements for availability, reliability and punctuality. We see the several advantages to continuing our collaboration with Euromaint," says Björn Holmberg, Chief Purchasing Officer at SJ AB.

The agreements come into force on the 1st March 2016 and run for three years, with an extension option.
