EuroMaint to Refurbish Older Trains
Modernising and refurbish older vehicles is an effective way to maximise the return on the considerable investment that an acquisition of trains means. Euromaint has a long experience of successful refurbishment projects and I am very pleased with E.A.V.s decision to trust us with this project and let us contribute to a good travel experience for the passengers within the Circumvesuviana network, says Ove Bergkvist, CEO of Euromaint Rail.
The project will mainly be carried out at Euromaints workshop in Delitzsch, Germany. The project starts in January and will be finalised in December 2015.
