Norwegian state-owned train leasing company Norske tog AS (NT) has selected Trimble E2M engineering asset and maintenance management system to handle rolling stock data.
The use of the system will offer NT and other Norwegian rail franchises a complete overview of essential data concerning rail assets. The E2M system will also provide details about the maintenance programme and history of rail assets.
NT technical director Luca Cuppari said: “Trimble E2M will help to maintain and improve the reliability and safety of rail vehicles that NT owns and leases.
“E2M will streamline the flow of digital asset data through the rail vehicle lifecycle for both NT and the franchisee train operating companies.”
The rail asset data will optimise maintenance work schedules, update technical documentation and maintenance programmes, and ensure that its rolling stock fleet fulfils government and regulatory agency requirements.
Trimble Rail Solutions Business general manager Tomas Larsson said: “Specifically designed for rail operations, Trimble E2M will provide NT and the franchisees a system to manage the status and history of maintenance across fleets.
“Using E2M to efficiently manage maintenance programmes will play a key role in minimising asset value depreciation and improve asset reliability while reducing operating costs.”
NT acquires, manages and leases rail vehicles to passenger transport operators in Norway. The firm is owned by Norway’s Ministry of Transport and Communications.
