Alstom has been awarded three contracts by the Spanish national operator Renfe to provide maintenance services for 15 Avelia Pendolino high-speed trains and 106 suburban trains from Renfe’s current fleet.
The contracts, worth a total of €125 million, include preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance for the suburban trains and full maintenance services for the Pendolinos (S-104).
All the works will be carried out by Irvia, an Alstom-Renfe joint venture.
As part of this award, Alstom renews for the next four years (with one extra year as an option) the current maintenance contracts for Renfe’s commuter trains. The preventive and corrective maintenance of these trains will be managed, as it is currently, in Renfe’s depots in Vilanova, Moncada and Mataró, all of which are in the Barcelona area.
Concerning the contract for Pendolino maintenance, services for the high-speed trains will take place at Cerro Negro (Madrid) and La Sagra (Toledo). Renfe’s Pendolinos were manufactured by Alstom in Santa Perpetua between 2002 and 2005. Currently they provide high-speed services from Madrid to Ciudad Real, Puertollano, Toledo, Córdoba and Seville.
