Punctuality demands reliable rolling stock

Since December, Euromaint has been in charge of the maintenance of SJ rolling stock operating the Sala–Linköping route.

“We’re very pleased so far; the availability has been good,” says Johan Rydén, rolling stock engineer at SJ.

Safe, comfortable, sustainable journeys that represent value for money and arrive at the final destination in all situations. That is SJ’s promise to its customers. One of the major challenges at the moment, which SJ shares with the Swedish Transport Administration and other train operators, is improving punctuality.

“This is something we’re working really hard on together, and having railworthy and reliable rolling stock is a vital element of that work. We chose Euromaint because they have extensive expertise within the railway industry and an established network of subcontractors. We also have good experience with them elsewhere in Sweden where they maintain both our SJ2000 train units and InterCity trains,” says Johan Rydén.

Ahead of this assignment Euromaint used its NPI process, New Product Introduction, which step by step describes what needs to be done before new pieces of rolling stock are taken to a workshop and also how the maintenance should be handled once it is up and running.

By keeping an eye on all elements before a contract starts, Euromaint can guarantee troublefree production that maintains high quality right from day one.
