French rolling stock manufacturer Alstom has secured a maintenance contract from DB Cargo Belgium and DB Cargo Netherlands for a fleet of 60 locomotives.

The contract will see the train maker offer full-service maintenance for 60 DE-6400 locomotives that run in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Alstom will provide preventive and corrective maintenance for three years.

The agreement also has an extension option of a further two years.

DB Cargo’s Belgian fleet maintenance will be carried out in Alstom’s Bruges facilities to ensure the fleet remains geographically close to the DB Cargo operation,

Suitable for larger and dispersed fleets, the maintenance approach helps monitor the state of assets via different data capture solutions for the more critical parts of the locomotives.
