Rolling Stock Maintenance

VR FleetCare works on rolling stock maintenance, lifecycle management and expert services. Our services cover all types of rolling stock from light rail to high speed trains, and from locomotives to freight wagons and track maintenance machineries. Our services are divided into four categories; ModernCare, SmartCare, ComponentCare and AssetCare.

Fleet Modernisation and Refurbishment

Our ModernCare service provides comprehensive fleet modernisation and refurbishment work, such as lifecycle extensions, technical modifications, and changes in commercial appearance. System upgrades (HVAC, drivers cab, passenger information and train control systems, etc.) as well as safety and environmental changes (e.g. reducing energy consumption) are also a key part of our rolling stock modernisation services.

Condition Monitoring Services

SmartCare focuses on leveraging the latest technology, data and analytics solutions. Condition monitoring services can be utilised in both rolling stock and track infrastructure. We perform risk and safety assessments and optimise maintenance systems. Our expert and consulting services focus on rolling stock engineering services, life cycle planning and rolling stock procurement.

VR FleetCare performs troubleshooting, testing, fault repairs and comprehensive maintenance. We maintain, among other things, bogies, wheelsets, brake systems, electronics, pneumatic valves, compressors, pumps and motors, and high voltage components.
