EuroMaint first in Sweden with ECM certification for hazardous goods

Euromaint was given an ECM certificate for the workshop in Landskrona. The certificate, which applies to the maintenance of freight wagons, also includes the maintenance of tanker carriers and other freight wagons designed for hazardous goods. This means that Euromaint’s workshop in Landskrona is the first in Sweden to hold an ECM certificate that also covers freight wagons designed for hazardous goods.

“Euromaint is very proud to be the first in Sweden with ECM certification that includes the maintenance of freight wagons designed for hazardous goods. The ECM certificate is important to our customers, and I am pleased that we can now offer certified maintenance at our Landskrona workshop. This is yet another stamp of quality on what we offer,” says Ulf Norberg, Freight Account Manager, EuroMaint Rail Sweden.

Euromaint’s German operation already has a number of ECM certifications, which has helped in our work to obtain certification for the Landskrona workshop.

“We have worked closely with Euromaint’s German operation during the certification process. This was valuable to us as they have already been through the process of ECM certifications of this type,” says Paul Cedwall, Production Technician and the person responsible for the certification process at Euromaint’s Landskrona workshop.

European Commission regulation no. 445/2011, the “ECM regulation”, relates to the certification system for all entities responsible for the maintenance of freight wagons (ECMs) on the EU’s rail networks. For more information about ECMs, please see www.transportstyrelsen.se.

Component Servicing for all types of Rolling Stock

Euromaint Rail reprocesses components for all types of rolling stock. Through an integrated approach for component servicing in connection with maintenance in traffic and overhauls, the vehicle’s throughput time in the workshop is reduced. Components are removed and replaced with new or reprocessed components and the vehicle can leave the workshop. The removed components are cleaned, maintained and repaired and put in our component stock.

Spare Parts Supply – 80,000 Articles for Rolling Stock

Euromaint Rail is Europe’s largest independent maintenance company for rolling stock. Our purchasing and logistics system is fully adapted to the railway industry. We have access to all the most important manufacturers and maintenance partners and have the knowledge and the volumes required for effective purchasing. Our 30,000 most common spare parts can be with the rolling stock within one day of ordering. Examples of services in EuroMaint’s maintenance solution: Preventive maintenance during operational breaks Preventive maintenance is carried out in accordance with the vehicle’s maintenance schedule at our traffic workshops around the country. Maintenance depends on the type of vehicle and number of kilometers or performance. Preventive maintenance consists of checking important subsystems and the replacement of worn parts. The preventive maintenance is constantly being developed. Split-based maintenance adapted to the vehicle´s traffic schedule Euromaint carry out split-based maintenance during operational breaks, which ensures that the vehicles are available when they are to be in service. Split-based maintenance means that the maintenance assignments are split into several sub-assignments that can be carried out at different times, at different workshops and are adapted to the vehicle’s traffic schedule. Split-based maintenance is based on vehicle expertise, experience and well-developed systems for control, planning and follow-ups. Fast and effective remedial maintenance Euromaint Rail has the most skilled troubleshooters in the industry. We also use the latest technology for evaluating brakes and wheels and use real time fault indication. We carry out remedial maintenance using our mobile maintenance teams, in conjunction with preventive maintenance or at scheduled workshop visits. Remote vehicle monitoring for prevention of faults and improved reliability Euromaint equips the vehicle with sensors that transmit information about the vehicle’s position and report the status of the vehicle’s most important systems. The requirements determine which systems information is retrieved about and if, for example existing fault indication systems can be used. The fault indication information makes it easier for the workshops to plan maintenance activities and for the service technicians to analyse any damage as the status information can be combined with information about where the fault occurred and at what speed the vehicle was travelling when it happened. The information is also used to give support to the operators’ staff i.e. train drivers. Mobile maintenance keeps the train moving Euromaint Rail has offered mobile service teams for emergency vehicle repairs in traffic for more than 30 years. When a stoppage is caused by a vehicle fault, Euromaint Rail’s mobile service team is usually called out. The mobile units work at trackside or at strategic loading locations such as ports and industrial areas. Our heavy service vehicles have equipment for replacing axletrees or for turning wheels in the field. The goods do not have to be unloaded and reloaded, which means large savings and minimal delays. Overhauls making the train as good as new An overhaul includes inspection of the vehicle and check measurement of a number of functions, preventive and remedial maintenance such as replacement of worn parts and consumables and thorough inspections of the brake system, motors and electrical system. High value components, such as bogies, traction motors and wheel sets are replaced. Also anti-corrosion treatment will be made as well as well as replacement of compressors, modifications and certain refurbishments."
