EQOS Maintenance for long-term safety

Maintenance for long-term safety

Catenary systems are often not just heavily used but also exposed to the elements. Therefore, permanent maintenance is extremely important to avoid annoying malfunctions and outages. Whether master agreement or individual commission: We ensure that your system is functional in the long term, so that you can maintain your operations without complications.

Control and safety systems

Dependable services at the depot as well

The depot usually provides space for all trains belonging to the regional network. This requires special attention during the planning stage: The catenary system must be able to handle a large number of trains simultaneously and also be operational 24 hours a day to ensure constant arrivals and departures. The creation of connecting points to nearby workshops is not uncommon either. EQOS Energie keeps an eye on everything for you and helps you get your depot properly connected!

EQOS Energie railway tunnel

With our experts, your tunnel project is in the most capable hands

Tunnel construction in local public transport always poses special challenges: There is hardly any room, sparse light and few ventilation pathways. . But our teams know how to deal with that: EQOS Energie has a wealth of experience in the construction of catenary lines in tunnels, so we know how to handle even the most complex circumstances. Each tunnel features different conditions which we address individually. For your project, we will therefore use special technology that is appropriate for low ceiling heights. We insert additional filters to take care of CO2 emissions and use two-way technology to ensure that the few available alternatives do not create a problem.
