LogServ operates maintenance site for Siemens e-locomotives

Premiere of Vectron with CargoServ in Austria; LogServ takes over maintenance and repair of the new Siemens electronic locomotive in Linz

As of now Siemens AG is using LogServ’s repair shop infrastructure for locomotives at the voestalpine plant in Linz. “We agreed upon a five-years-contract about maintenance and repair of Vectron locomotives with the Siemens AG“, Christian Janecek, managing director, and Markus Schinko, authorised signatory of LogServ, announced on April 9. “This increases the short-term availability of our vehicles and increases our know-how about maintenance of electronic trains, which we can then also offer to other private railway operators.“

The extensive know-how of the LogServ repair shop for diesel locomotives serves as the basis for the extension of services to the field of electric locomotives. To this end, the LogServ employees have been undergoing a training directly from Siemens for several weeks. „We focus on the reliability and the expertise of our long-standing customer and business partner LogServ and look forward to another productive collaboration,“ says Franz Proksch, Sales Manager Rail Systems, Siemens Austria.

Since  March 2, a Vectron is in use at Cargo Service GmbH (CargoServ), a subsidiary of LogServ. This is the first electric locomotive of this type that was purchased by an Austrian railway company and put into operation. This train is the eighth electric mainline locomotive of CargoServ, who also holds seven Siemens electric locomotives of the series in 1116 and 1216 as well as three diesel locomotives of Adtrans V100 type.
