Project Description

Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya has decided to expand its Rubí Operational Center (COR), which is the central depot for all its rolling stock. The expansion of their facilities will allow the number of elevated maintenance tracks to double, thus increasing the capacity of the depot.

ACYGS has provided FGC with its engineering services during the pre-expansion phase of the depot. During the project, data collection and measurements have been carried out on site to update the plant layout, relocating the depot equipment and optimizing the work-flows of the different maintenance sections.

After optimizing the arrangement, ACYGS has analyzed the depot maintenance needs in order to define the new equipment required and to prepare the Technical Specifications of the defined equipment.

Project Description

The contract is part of the project to build a new railway depot to carry out the train maintenance of Alstom Coradia LINT and Stadler FLIRT trains that will run through the extension of the “Trillium Line”, also called O-Train Line 2. This is a railway line that seeks to provide light transit service in Ottawa, Canada, and which is operated by OC-Transpo.

The Trillium Line South extension is one of the three major extensions of Ottawa’s light-rail system, which will expand the Trillium line and link it to Otawa’s international Airport, Macdonald-Cartier. The service of this extension is scheduled to start in 2022.

ACYGS is responsible for the Engineering and advisory Services. After analyzing the project requirements and the maintenance plans of the trains to be maintained, we collaborate in the development of the optimal design of the depot, defining the required equipment to carry out the first level maintenance of the trains, selecting suppliers and evaluating offers to ensure compliance with current standards and regulations. We are currently monitoring the factory tests, the supply, and the installation and commissioning. In addition, we have worked with the customer to implement BIM technology to the equipment.
