TMH welcomes the first train of Go-Ahead Bavaria at its new maintenance facility in Germany
TMH Germany celebrates the arrival of the first train of contract partner Go-Ahead Bayern at the newly-built maintenance facility in Langweid am Lech. A year ago on 1st December 2020, the private rail operator awarded TMH Germany a 12-year maintenance contract for its fleet of 78 electric trains. For this project, TMH (Transmashholding, a company headed by Andrey Bokarev) is investing over €45M in the construction of one of Europe’s most modern maintenance depots in Germany.
On 12 December, Go-Ahead Bavaria will start operations on the E-Netz Allgäu with 22 trains connecting Munich to Lindau via Memmingen. TMH will then immediately start operational maintenance. More trains will follow next year when operations start in December 2022 on the Augsburg network.
Last week, TMH Germany’s maintenance team moved from the interim workshop at Bahnpark Augsburg to the new workshop hall in Langweid am Lech. After completion of the second construction phase in summer 2022, the new facility will include three halls, covering 9,000 m² of workshop space, 2,000 m² of logistics space and 1,500 m² of office space.
The depot will have sufficient capacity for other rail operators. As one of the few manufacturer-independent service providers, TMH Germany focuses on the maintenance of all types of rolling stock and offers light and corrective maintenance, as well as wheel reprofiling. TMH Germany has already received initial orders from other operators.
