In the last five years, the depot has increased the scope of the maintenance and repair it carries out. At present, the division is certified to provide a comprehensive range of services (including routine repairs TR-2) to ED4 electric trains and to maintain Esh2 (Stadler) and EG2Tv (Ivolga) rolling stock. In addition to Aeroexpress trains, the depot also carries out technical maintenance and routine repairs for twelve ED4M and two EG2Tv (Ivolga) trains belonging to the Central Suburban Passenger Company.
“We often say that our passengers’ safety and comfort is the key element of our company’s activities. Having our own depot proves this fact. Thanks to our division, we are able to promptly solve any technical issues related to rolling stock maintenance and also provide qualified services to other carriers,” said Valery Fyodorov, COO of Aeroexpress.
The company has become the first private intermodal suburban carrier to independently serve operating rolling stock. In future, the depot will maintain the company’s new double-deck trains, produced by Stadler, as well as providing wheel-turning services to third-party companies, maintaining and repairing various train components, and introducing innovative technologies in the rolling stock maintenance and repair processes.
As of today, the division employs over 170 staff members. They undergo training in Aeroexpress Corporate Training Centre at the company’s own expense.
