Increase components lifetime, promote repair and reuse solutions and develop local repair centres
Terms of the action or commitment
For these activities, ALSTOM’s contribution to circular economy is based on three key actions:
– Increase the lifespan of components and optimize the use of resources – ALSTOM aims to quantify the environmental impact of a reference maintenance solution as well as the environmental benefits of its Health HubTM predictive maintenance program, to develop a system for monitoring resource consumption during maintenance and modernization phases and creating a market for second-hand spare parts for the railway sector, including dormant / obsolete parts
– Shorten repair loops, by deploying centers and promoting local repair on its maintenance and modernization sites
– Promote the repair and usage of used parts, by developing pilot projects on the company’s sites but also by developing reconditioning and take-back options with existing suppliers and reconditioners.
2022 follow-up of the action
b) Numerical / Qualitative information
In 2021, ALSTOM implemented many repairs of parts in order to be able to offer them on the second-hand market. A roadmap dedicated to the circular economy has been put in place covering design and production; maintenance and modernization; waste management and recycling; this is being rolled out gradually.
