Alstom to Provide Maintenance to Freight Locomotives in Mexico

Alstom has been awarded a contract by Ferromex (Grupo Mexico) to provide preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance for 219 freight locomotives for a five year period.

The scope of Alstom’s services includes the application of CBM (Condition Based Maintenance) technologies, oil and vibration analyses. Thanks to the implementation of remote monitoring, asset support and predictive analytics solutions, maintenance works will greatly be facilitated, and operational costs reduced.

The locomotives will be maintained at Ferromex depots located in Torreon, Chihuahua and Guadalajara. This project is expected to generate 150 direct jobs. 

Rodelmar Ocampo, Managing Director of Alstom Mexico, said:

“We are honored that Ferromex, for whom we are maintaining more than half of its locomotives, is renewing its trust in Alstom’s services. This award also illustrates Alstom’s commitment to support Mexico’s mobility projects for more efficient, more reliable, more sustainable transport network”

Alstom has been present in Mexico for nearly 50 years. The group supplied sixty metro trainsets for the first metro line of Mexico City as well as signaling systems, electromechanical and modernization for more than 100 other metro trainsets. Alstom has also provided trains, maintenance and modernization services, as well as signaling and infrastructure for passengers and freight services.
