Rehabilitation and Modernisation

Increasing the lifecycle of a used or second hand railway-vehicle trough rehabilitation and modernisation

Reliability, safety and comfort define a transport system’s attractiveness. Through comprehensive refurbishment and modernisation activities, Ferrostaal increases the lifecycle of a used railway-vehicle.

In comparison to a new acquisition, the rehabilitation and modernisation of an existing fleet or the acquisition of second-hand but modernised railway vehicles is in many cases the economically most effective solution. By utilising this method, Ferrostaal makes it possible to combine economy of time and cost efficiency. For such refurbishment projects, Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions - in cooperation with our partners - develops custom-fitted concepts which include a technical strategy, delivery of components, logistics as well as work to be executed in local workshops.
