Hector Rail contract renewed

A partnership that has already been in place for over 15 years has been extended for at least another 5 years. After an initial Full Service maintenance contract with Hector Rail, our number one customer in Sweden, Akiem signed a new 5-year contract in January this year with an option to extend, covering 12 TRAXX BR185.2s, 26 Vectron E193s (B99, B25 and B97) and 2 BR189s. Preventive and corrective maintenance operations on Hector Rail’s fleet of 42 electric locomotives  will be carried out by Akiem teams at workshops in Krefeld in Germany, Hallsberg, Borlänge, Malmö, Göteborg, Hagalund, Ånge and Luleå in Sweden, and Kongsvinger and Oslo in Norway. This win-win partnership consolidates our position throughout Scandinavia.
