The center also offers preventive and corrective maintenance tools. Among other benefits, using Railigent X’s cloud-based rail asset management solution, operators and technicians can gain insight into asset performance to optimize maintenance.

After the modernization, the railway service center in Novara can join the elite group of thirteen global centers of excellence managed by Siemens Mobility. If successful, it will become only the second center of its kind in Europe after the Siemens plant in Allach, Germany.
