The origins of SŽ – VIT date back to 1846 when the arrival of Austrian Southern Railway first introduced steam railway to the area of modern Slovenia. Throughout this time, we have kept pace with the development of the railway and rail transport in terms of technology and organisation.
The company transitioned from steam-based to electric traction as the most modern choice of train haulage and expanded the first, largely simplistic maintenance depot to five production centres while utilizing modern inspection facilities to ensure safety and reliability in rail transport.
SŽ − VIT: VITal News 2019. On the right track: it is almost halfway through 2019, and the past year's business performance is still a hot topic.
Much like the year before, we will work hard to complete our orders, honour our contract obligations and meet customer's needs in maintenance.
In spring of this year, SŽ – VIT was certified to deliver I3 inspections independently on Siemens’ Vectron locomotives.
By passing the ECM surveillance audit, SŽ – VIT has renewed its certificate and demonstrated that it meets the criteria to continue its work.
To extend its ECM certificate, SŽ – VIT has recently applied for a re-assessment of its maintenance system.
Starting this year, SŽ – VIT is certified for the production of new wheelsets with a range of TSI-compliant designs.
SŽ-VIT's Ljubljana depot overhauled the Siemens 541-004 Taurus, the first multi system electric locomotive in SŽ-Tovorni promet's fleet.
Our wheelset overhaul shop in Ptuj is now able to undertake shrink-fitting of wheelsets, which is typical for newer types of locomotives and passenger trains.
