Stadler delivers to MTR Express 24 month of uninterrupted service for their fleet of FLIRT trains. 100 % availability is welcomed by MTR Express and their passengers that enjoy comfortable and trouble-free travelling between Stockholm and Gothenburg.
Stadler delivers trains and maintenance to MTR Express, operator of railway services between Stockholm and Gothenburg. In 2013, Stadler received an order for six X74-Flirt type vehicles, which immediately set the Swiss clockwork in motion. Only one year later, the first trainset was delivered to our customer, and on the 21 March 2015, the first passengers were welcomed to board the brand new red express train.
On 21 March 2017, Stadler has delivered two years of 100% availability to MTR Express. In practice, this means that all six trainsets have run without any failures that led to an interruption. Swiss quality meets Swedish engagement and professional pride in a successful concept.
Thanks to a professional team of maintenance technicians trained in both Sweden and Switzerland, Stadler has delivered full availability, with training at the Stadler factory in Bussnang giving the co-workers a priceless understanding of the vehicles they maintain with dedication and competence.
We at Stadler are looking forward to continuing to deliver high quality trainsets and maintenance to the Swedish railway. We make sure it rolls!
