Alstom Spain´s TrainScanner technology enters service in Poland

TrainScanner, the predictive maintenance solution developed by Alstom Spain, has entered in service in Warsaw´s Pendolino Service Centre, where it will be used to maintain the fleet of 20 Avelia Pendolinos operated by Polish State Railways.

Alstom Spain´s TrainScanner technology enters service in Poland


The system implemented by Alstom in Warsaw builds on TrainScanner´s experience in the United Kingdom, where it has been used in servicing Avanti West Coast’s Pendolino fleet for years. TrainScanner provides predictive maintenance and continuous assessment of rolling stock’s technical condition. Thanks to digital data analysis, it identifies the optimal moment for component replacement.

Using 3D cameras and lasers, TrainScanner automatically enables condition-based and predictive maintenance for wheels, brake pads and pantograph carbon strips as well as on under-frames and body shells.

Information as the train passes

Subsystem information is captured as the train passes through the TrainScanner. After automated inspection, the data is transmitted to Alstom’s HealthHub platform, which translates raw data into actionable information by using rule-based algorithms, leading to the calculation of a health index for each asset.
