Maintenance of electric locomotives and components.

Article: Dessau maintenance depot

Since its foundation in 1929, our Dessau maintenance depot has been an important part of our maintenance depot landscape and offers you a wide range of services with its core competence in the field of modernisation, maintenance and overhaul of electric locomotives. Thanks to our experience and technical expertise, we can offer you the reconditioning of various components - from pantographs to wheelsets - and also provide you with competent support in the repair of accident damage. 

Since 2011, the maintenance centre for transmissions and springs in Chemnitz has also been part of the location. 

In 2019, our maintenance depot commissioned the most modern locomotive testing centre in Europe. This allows locomotives with voltages of up to 25 kV to be tested on eight test benches.
