Alliance for Availability – the open ecosystem for rail.

The rail industry and rail network operation are challenged with increasing technological and organizational complexity. Mastering it takes ever-more specific skills and knowledge.

 

At Siemens Mobility Customer Services, we provide the key. As your partner, we bring together the most diverse processes, technologies, and expertise in an open ecosystem. This new Alliance for Availability combines the forces of the rail industry, suppliers, operators, partners, and universities. Our common goal is to optimally leverage the expertise of all participants – to achieve 100% system availability, optimize efficiency and costs, and protect investments.

We decided to award Siemens the full-service contract for ten Vectron DAI because we believe that Siemens Service provides the required technical and operational expertise for maintaining this fleet. After the first months in operations, the locomotives show very good availability and reliability figures.”
Fernando Pérez, Managing Director – Locomotive Division of Alpha Trains
