We are investing over £30 million in depots in Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness and Glasgow, to bring the best of rail engineering to Scotland and more efficient trains.
Craigentinny will be our home for nearly 30 years as part long-term maintenance contract. Our long-term commitment ensures investment in the depot, workforce, local community and with Scottish suppliers.
We have already invested over £20 million upgrading Craigentinny to accommodate modern fleets. We are also conducting an extensive upskilling programme so all staff can use Hitachi’s latest digital diagnostic technology.
All Hitachi trains in Scotland are digital ready, with thousands of sensors that live monitor the train, diagnose defects, formulates a repair plan and ultimately cut down the hours needed for train maintenance.
