Nexus Tyne & Wear Metro

Refurbished MetroNexus, the operators of the Tyne and Wear Metro came to us with a problem. They required the life span of their entire fleet of motors to last until 2023. The quandary being whether to buy in new rolling stock or extend the life of the existing fleet.

When we offered HiTRAX™ as a solution for the debilitated traction motor field systems, that was one headache Metro could now forget about.

Part of their £60 million re-invigoration process is now dedicated to rewinding the field systems on entire fleet of motors with the HiTRAX™ system, meaning their life span will have been extended to at least 2023 when new rolling stock will be introduced.
