Depending on the manufacturer’s maintenance plans, mgw Service will carry out these revisions after eight years or between 1.0 and 1.2 million kilometres (revision R1), or alternatively after 16 years or 2.0 and 2.4 million kilometres (R2).
During the locomotive revision, which takes around four weeks for R1 or six weeks depending on the operations, the vehicle is completely dismantled. Components such as the brake system, bogies and fans are overhauled and parts replaced where necessary. After re-assembly, your vehicle will undergo a comprehensive test run to ensure its safe operation for the years ahead.
Carrying out these revisions to the required standard is important for locomotive safety and security and the value of your assets over the long term. We have considerable experience of overhauling modern electric locomotives, having completed many revisions since our first project in 2011. Customer satisfaction has been extremely high, both with the quality of the work carried out and the on-schedule return of the locomotive.
Our revisions are performed at mgw Service’s premises in Krefeld or other suitably equipped maintenance workshops across Europe. We can also overhaul vehicles in your own workshop, using your assets to our mutual benefit.
