Alliance for Availability: The open ecosystem for rail

Joint forces for 100% system availability – optimize efficiency and costs and protect your asset value

With growing complexity throughout the rail system and rail operation, target-oriented collaboration is more essential than ever. The Alliance for Availability is the open ecosystem for rail that combines the forces of the rail industry, suppliers, operators, partners, universities, and science.
We want to:
  • Work together to combine domain expertise, operational experience, and digital and data-based knowledge
  • Use advanced processes, technologies, expertise, and digital platforms like Railigent® and MoBase®
  • Leverage expertise to achieve 100 percent system availability
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

Collaborating with operators enables the condition-based optimization of maintenance planning and execution, leading to exceptional results. In Russia, for example, our high-speed trains have run 12 million kilometers so far – without a single delay exceeding five minutes. Working with science institutes and universities has facilitated the use of additive manufacturing, even for safety-relevant components. The rail industry, partners, and suppliers contribute their domain expertise and highly specialized solutions.
