Vossloh Kiepe UK is leading the industry in rail engineering integration and rolling stock enhancement. We offer a turnkey service designed to get trains back into service fast.
Naturally, we have the right rail engineering accreditation and certification in place – including RISAS, giving Vossloh Kiepe UK the highest level of second party assurance of systems and competence available.
But it’s our specialist rail engineering expertise, and the calibre of our engineers, that we’re most proud of, as you’ll see from the results of our contracts.
Our wide range of capabilities includes rail engineering and design solutions for diesel and electric units, vehicle traction control and transmission systems, braking system upgrades, structural engineering, systems integration, analysis, testing and reporting. From the vehicle underframe to the passenger saloon, from the driver’s cab to the equipment cupboard, we have built a reputation for achievement that encompasses every piece of rail engineering on today’s trains.
Uniquely, we can deliver complex turnkey rail engineering solutions for major works like complete train refurbishment and programmed rolling stock enhancement at any suitable location – customers’ depots or managed premises leased for the project term, minimising disruption and down time.
Protecting relationships between train operators’ depot management staff and our own can make all the difference to the success of any turnkey project.
Our integrated rail engineering activities range from development and integration of passenger information provision, remote train monitoring, driver advisory systems, accessibility solutions and more, to undertaking performance calculations, reliability management and defect rectification programmes.
Vossloh Kiepe UK is also the UK’s leading authority on adhesion control, having installed over 2500 sanding systems on rail vehicles in the UK and overseas.
