Eltel to provide maintenance for Stockholm’s two central tram lines

Sweden-based public transport body Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) has signed a new six-year contract with Eltel to provide maintenance for two of Stockholm's central tram lines Lidingöbanan and Spårväg City.

Sweden-based public transport body Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) has signed a new six-year contract with Eltel to provide maintenance for two of Stockholm’s central tram lines Lidingöbanan and Spårväg City.

The contract will be effective beginning next year and is expected to run until the end of 2021.

As part of the deal, Eltel’s rail and road business unit will be responsible for carrying out maintenance and reinvestment projects on tracks, track foundations, catenary and signalling systems.

"SL is a key customer in Eltel’s transport business."

SL contract manager Johan Staaf said: "We are looking forward to a good cooperation with Eltel and expect qualitative deliveries in a contract with high demands on functional commitment and long-term development."

Eltel’s business with SL started with an award of maintenance contract for telecommunication systems in 2005.

In 2010, SL renewed this contract until 2017 and this year Eltel completes a two-year long project associated with renovations of Lidingöbanan.

Eltel rail and road president Fredrik Häggström said: "SL is a key customer in Eltel’s transport business. In some areas we are forerunners like in statistics, follow-up regarding service level agreements (SLA) and preventive maintenance diagnostics.

"The new contract is an important complement to our existing telecom business with SL and a strategic step to establish Eltel as a partner in rail maintenance."

Eltel offers a broad and integrated range of services, spanning from maintenance and upgrade services to project deliveries.

The company has operations throughout the Nordic and Baltic regions, Poland, Germany, the UK and Africa.
