Tågkompaniet names maintenance partner for X-trafik route

Tågkompaniet has appointed EuroMaint to maintain the rolling stock currently operating on Sweden’s X-trafik route for the next 10 years.

Having won the combined operations and maintenance contract last year, Tågkompaniet has now named EuroMaint as its maintenance partner.

Work will be carried out at Euromaint’s Gävle site.

Håkan Jarl, chief operating officer at Tågkompaniet, said: “While working together with Euromaint on Tåg i Bergslagen we developed a good dialogue and a good understanding on multiple levels of how we could work to achieve the best possible passenger satisfaction.

“We’re stepping things up a notch in this new collaboration for X-trafik by introducing a lot of new ideas which will help the company to achieve its target of greater availability for a lower cost.”
