Lighthouse Lite Event: Ageing Rolling Stock - Purchase or Refurbish?
PANEL DISCUSSION | Date: 19 October 2016
Purchase or Refurbish?
Cost effective upkeep of your ageing fleet
Train operators across the globe are seeking to maximise the value of their metro trains in service while keeping costs at a minimum. However, ageing assets and increasing requirements put pressure on the operation and maintenance for metro operators. They face the challenge to modernise or maintain their rolling stock. A decision has to be made on whether to purchase new trains or to refurbish them, but a lot of questions remain for the operator:
How do we evaluate and extend the lifetime of our rolling stock?
How do we optimise our operations and maintenance?
What needs to be done to get our new vehicles purchased, commissioned and approved?
What is the impact of new / refurbished rolling stock on our existing system? How do we evaluate these consequences?
How do we deal with uncertainty and unknown risks in quality and operations?
Our experts will discuss these issues through a panel discussion.
