Alstom has secured an important extension to a key servicing and maintenance contract in Victoria.
The contract extension was signed at the start of November and is for a further 20 months, ensuring Alstom’s skilled workforce has a solid pipeline of work until 30 June, 2023.
The servicing and maintenance is conducted for Alstom’s customer, V/Line, on Alstom’s award-winning VLocity DMU fleet – built locally by Alstom in Dandenong – and on legacy locomotives out of the West Melbourne, South Dynon, Ballarat East and Geelong depots.
With Australia’s largest services portfolio, Alstom ANZ currently has more than 2000 railcars under management across Victoria, NSW, Queensland, South Australia and WA.
Alstom’s Director of Service, Australia and New Zealand, Lindsay Menzies said securing this contract extension was positive recognition of the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in the VLocity and Classic Fleet servicing and maintenance teams across Victoria.
“I would like to thank the Alstom team and our customers at V/Line and the Department of Transport for their confidence in our team to continue to support their safe and efficient operations to Victoria’s regions,” he said.
Alstom has been providing sustainable infrastructure solutions across Australia for more than 100 years and currently employs about 1600 people across 25 sites that include engineering centers, manufacturing facilities, project delivery offices and maintenance depots and workshops.
