LTG Cargo has completed overhaul program of Siemens locomotives
LTG Cargo has completed a program of overhaul of Siemens locomotives – the work carried out at its own enterprise LTG Tech (formerly the Vilnius Locomotive Repair Depot) saved more than 20 million Euros.
The overhaul phase of Siemens mainline locomotives used by LTG Cargo has been completed – in less than 2 years. LTG Tech has repaired 44 locomotives. LTG Cargo is estimated to have saved around € 20.5 million by working directly with component manufacturers and using the company’s experts, informs Railway Supply magazine citing LTG Tech
“We are on the path of effective growth, so we are very pleased with the result we have achieved – overhauled and very reliable Siemens locomotives are operating in our locomotive fleet, we have saved a very significant amount by choosing our specialists for scheduled maintenance,” says LTG Cargo CEO Egidijus Lazauskas.
On Monday, June 21st, the last overhauled Siemens locomotive left the LTG Tech workshop. The repair of one such LTG Cargo locomotive cost about $ 1.1 million from the manufacturer.
According to LTG Tech CEO Albertas Bajorinas, the savings are not the only good news for the company as it expands its service and supply geography.
“Our specialists constantly carry out maintenance of Siemens locomotives and the necessary minor repairs. However, our competence has allowed us to take a new step and take on much more complex overhaul work that was previously provided by the locomotive manufacturer. By demonstrating the competence and skills of our team, we hope to expand the geography of our clients, ”said Albertas Bajorinas.
