Centralising the ICN tilting train maintenance – Variant study for maintenance work in a short shop
Customer: SBB Passenger Traffic, Switzerland
Operating and production concept
Compilation of profitability calculation
Together with various SBB organisations and several specialist planners (L2A Architekten AG, Technisches Büro K.N.O.L.L. GmbH, Wiederkehr und Villiger AG and Fahrgrund AG), 12 variants were developed in the greater Biel area and evaluated operationally, technically, and economically. Planning documents, a cost estimate, a possible schedule, and the corresponding application documentation for the decision-making process within SBB were prepared for the best variant. In addition, a recommendation was made for further procedures, including the risk assessment for the subsequent phases.
With the wealth of experience of the people involved, the possibilities at the Biel site could be quickly and efficiently identified and evaluated. The option of additional roof work was subsequently integrated due to the consideration of the entire production concept.
