On November 22, 2023, Siemens Mobility inaugurated its new locomotive workshop in Hallsberg, which Train Alliance delivered on a 25-year lease. It was a well-attended and elegantly executed inauguration event where participants mingled, discussed, and of course also viewed the new premises. For the occasion, Siemens had set up two new Vectron locomotives in the workshop that guests could study with the help of Siemens locomotive technicians.

The hostess for the event, Siemens Mobility Sweden CEO Kristina Nyqvist, spoke in her welcome speech about the journey to the establishment of the company’s first own workshop in Sweden, which also marks the starting point for a clear presence for Siemens Mobility in Sweden.

The next speaker was the guest of honor, Johannes Emmelheinz, CEO Siemens Mobility, who spoke about Siemens’ strategy for the future where maintenance capability is placed on site in the railway system. Digitalization and high vehicle availability are two important strengths for the new generation of locomotives.

Throughout the project, Train Alliance’s focus has been to create an efficient production facility that meets Siemens- requirements for optimal vehicle maintenance. The workshop concept is built “from the inside out” based on the vehicle configuration. The environmental and sustainability perspective has permeated the work and guided choices and processes in design and construction.


Facts about the workshop:

The workshop is located in Hallsberg where Sweden’s largest marshalling yard for freight traffic is located. The service depot is equipped with advanced digital tools and systems that can quickly and efficiently perform preventive and remedial vehicle maintenance. For operators who operate across national borders, the facility in Hallsberg is strategically located along the TEN-T corridor.
