Nomad Tech, a joint venture between Nomad Digital and EMEF, has completed installation of the first phase of a remote condition-based monitoring (CBM) solution for NSB Norway trains.

Signed in December 2013, the project helps NSB Norway to monitor its fleet and decrease maintenance costs and increase fleet availability.

Nomad currently has CBM solutions installed on 70 FLIRT trains and an additional 60 NSB trains will be equipped by the end of this year.

A NSB spokesman said: "The solutions will help determine when parts actually need replacing, instead of changing perfectly adequate parts capable of doing thousands of more miles.

"It will inform us when to perform preventive maintenance tasks for the best results in regards to availability."

"In addition, it will inform us when to perform preventive maintenance tasks for the best results in regards to availability."

Nomad Digital chief executive Andrew Taylor said: "Our technology allows an operator to understand in real-time the location and condition of every asset within the entire network, enabling them to focus on improving both the cost and operational management of their business."

"Early detection of potential failures of on-board equipment, together with a full condition based monitoring system, allows for better predictive maintenance schemes, ultimately leading to improved reliability and availability of the rolling stock."

Nomad was recently selected by Amtrak and Bombardier to provide on-board passenger information solutions and passenger Wi-Fi respectively.
