"The company’s activities have accelerated, the team has grown, and the impacts of internationalisation are now felt more than ever in our work."
As an engineer in charge of Traxx locomotives operating in Germany and central Europe, I measure levels of availability, reliability and safety across the fleet. I also oversee our maintenance strategy for the short, medium and long term, suggesting technical action plans to improve our rolling stock and satisfy our clients. Working with our procurement teams, I help to define maintenance and servicing operations and am involved in contractor approvals, contract management and supervision.
Although my role is fundamentally technical, I keep a firm eye on costs too! I also oversee and manage maintenance contracts with our suppliers, adapting them as needed to suit our clients’ requirements. I provide the technical and financial lead for my fleet of locomotives – it’s an extremely varied working life.
