SNC-Lavalin supports operators and owners in developing enhancements to existing fleets, ensuring owners and operators can gain optimum value from their assets.
From providing passenger fleet enhancement services to international operators, owners and manufacturers, to developing and managing interior refurbishments, train system enhancements, life extension packages and modifications, we have the knowledge that matters. We support the full lifecycle of an enhancement project covering feasibility studies to assess options, concept designs and industrial design schemes, engineering design and assessments of fire safety, design assurance and safety assurance, materials procurement and installation program management.
We understand the increased pressures for operators to deliver clean, modern and efficient stock. With this in mind, our extensive knowledge and experience means that our clients know their enhancement projects will be in expert hands; with SNC-Lavalin’s assistance, our existing clients have successfully implemented life extensions, refurbishment schemes and technology upgrades, including ETCS.
We deploy our own expert project and engineering resources and undertake turnkey projects through which we design, procure and install. Our specialist teams are experienced in developing technical specifications, applying their expert knowledge in industrial design and human factors to projects of all sizes. We also produce project, safety and technical documentation and undertake on-the-ground manufacturing surveillance and audits.
Our teams advise on rolling stock enhancements for persons with reduced mobility, hearing impairments or sight impairments. This includes improving wheelchair access, fitting accessible toilets, installing passenger information systems and configuring layouts and interiors. We manage testing and commissioning, configuration and change management, with clients benefitting from our ability to manage fleet introduction logistics and operations support.
We understand the constraints of resourcing and offer clients a ‘one-stop shop’ solution to provide specialist advice and support as/when required.
