Talgo’s technological developments have always been guided by safety, comfort, economy, simplicity of design, and innovative features.
The first Talgo Train was designed in the early 1940s. This innovative train revolutionized rail travel by debuting the same technological principles that today make Talgo Trains the safest, most innovative and reliable passenger trains around. Talgo’s technology has constantly been advanced over the years, enhancing its winning features and developing exciting new ones.
From the revolutionary idea of a lightweight, articulated train with an independent wheel system to the present day, Talgo has provided many innovations to the railway industry today, all of them applied to their trains, and some of them, also incorporated on the latest trains by other manufacturers.
Its own technology and its innovative nature allow Talgo to reach the highest levels of quality, availability, reliability, safety and respect for the environment in its products, always maintaining a leading position in railway technology development.
Nowdays The operation of high-speed trains is very complex, and the necessary tools and technologies are needed to meet the defined requirements for safety, reliability values, availability values and cybersecurity.
For this purpose Talgo has developed a full native digital platform, TSMART to monitorice the health status of the fleet in the Real-Time, based on IoT, Cloud Computing and Machine learning technologies, for the implementation of new predictive maintenance models based on the condition of the health status of the systems.
Talgo’s technological principles and proven features are ideally suited for high speed trains.

AGENDA FOCUS TOPICS
DAY 1 - 27 JUNE 2023
Implementing Cost-Saving Innovations In Fleet Maintenance To Improve Availability
- Examine rail maintenance mega trends to enhance service, capacity, and passenger experience while lowering the cost
- Transitioning to condition-based maintenance in conjunction with classical maintenance strategies
- Taking steps to cut costs and decide how many people to hire at a time when unions are more active and industrial action more frequent
- The macro view on establishing a culture of data-driven decision-making throughout maintenance, asset management & operations
- Best practices on building the technical expertise to analyse and use data for maintenance decision making effectively
- Application of ai algorithms to automate the process of cleaning & pre-processing data, as well as detecting anomalies to save time and money
- Creating digital twins of rolling stock to simulate and analyse maintenance scenarios, identify potential problems, and optimise maintenance plans
- Digitalisation solutions that maximise ROI and cost reduction
DAY 2 – 28 JUNE 2023
Maintenance Planning For All Categories Of Fleets And Handling Obsolescence
- Revisiting the conversation on outsourcing vs. Insourcing rail maintenance in the context of escalating prices, more frequent industrial action & a driving need to reduce cost
- Addressing the challenges of cost-effectively maintaining the reliability of locomotives as they age
- Reducing energy consumption - implementing new technology upgrades & modifying maintenance techniques
- Finding solutions to address the availability of components in the supply chain
- Proactively addressing mechanical and safety-critical component obsolesce cost-effectively
- Optimising the size of the engineering workforce based on the volume & type of maintenance
DAY 3 – 29 JUNE 2023
Future-Proofing New And Existing Depots
- Cost-competitively future-proofing new & existing rail depots to ensure flexibility for evolving fleet requirements – what is needed over the next 5, 10 or 20 years?
- Upgrading existing depots to support a range of fleets & maintenance regimes cost-effectively
- Transitioning from a time interval to more conditional-based monitoring in the depot
- Optimising the depot to prioritise retrofitting that delivers the most benefit for the least cost and to ensure the required equipment is integrated seamlessly
- Practicalities of optimising the use of data in the depot environment for safe, more targeted maintenance
- Standardising workforce training across all depots using the latest virtual reality & software apps
- Prioritising investment in depot automation to reduce the cost of cleaning, essential maintenance & safety optimisation
