Ferromex, Alstom ink contract for locomotive maintenance

Ferromex has awarded Alstom a five-year contract to provide maintenance services to the railroad's 219 freight locomotives.

The contract covers "preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance," according to an Alstom press release.

Services will include condition based maintenance technologies, as well as oil and vibration analyses. Alstom will use remote monitoring, asset support and predictive analytics solutions, company officials said.

Manufactured by Electro-Motive Diesel Corp. and GE, the locomotives will be maintained at Ferromex depots in Torreon, Chihuahua and Guadalajara, Mexico.

"We are honored that Ferromex, for whom we are maintaining more than half of its locomotives, is renewing its trust in Alstom's services," said Rodelmar Ocampo, managing director of Alstom Mexico. "This award also illustrates Alstom's commitment to support Mexico's mobility projects for a more efficient, more reliable, more sustainable transport network."

Alstom has been doing business in Mexico for nearly 50 years. The company's press release did not reveal a dollar value for this latest contract.
