Rail Leasing company Eversholt Rail has awarded supplier Alstom Transport UK a £12∙4m contract to undertake the mileage-based overhaul of its fleet of 40 three-car Class 334 Juniper electric multiple-units which are operated by ScotRail.
The programme will commence in October 2021 with the work on the approximately 20-year old EMUs being carried out at Alstom’s Polmadie depot in Glasgow and its Longsight depot near Manchester.
The scope includes overhaul of the bogies and other mechanical and pneumatic underframe components, together with electrical subsystems including the pantograph, compressor, auxiliary fans and analogue control units.
‘This comprehensive refurbishment of our fleet of Class 334 trains will greatly enhance the service we provide customers travelling across Scotland’s central belt’, said ScotRail Engineering Director Syeda Ghufran on November 20. ‘Eversholt Rail and Alstom’s expertise in carrying out this work will allow us to improve comfort and reliability for passengers as we continue to provide them with a cost-effective service for years to come.’
