This contract extension builds on Siemens Mobility’s recent success in digitally upgrading the trains, enabling them to remotely monitor their own condition through Railigent X.

Railigent X remote condition monitoring provides direct updates on each train and how it is performing, including any areas that need to be prioritised for maintenance.

This enables any issues to be identified in advance, ensuring the fleet performs reliably and delivers a positive passenger experience.

Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility said:

“The UK is one of our core markets and we’re proud to have been awarded this contract extension. It is a real testament for us being a trusted partner to our customers and continuing to ensure trains perform at a high standard throughout their entire lifecycle. Railigent X applications, part of the open, digital Siemens Xcelerator business platform, enable us to offer best passenger experience and highest availability.”
