DB Cargo and Siemens sign condition-based Maintenance Contract

GERMAN Rail (DB) rail freight subsidiary DB Cargo has signed a contract with Siemens to carry out condition-based and predictive maintenance on more than 250 electric locomotives.

The aim of the partnership is to increase the availability of class 152 locomotives built in 1995-2001 and multi-system class 189 locomotives supplied in 2003-2005. Both fleets were supplied by Siemens.

DB says this is the first time in Europe an operator and locomotive supplier have continued to exchange and exploit technical data after delivery.
