Client: Flytoget AS

Year: 2010

A fire in one of the trains of Flytoget AS resulted in severe local damages and damages to the entire train due to smoke gases. The restoration of the train included removal and cleaning of interior parts and finally re-installation of the train interior.

SNC-Lavalin took the responsibility to follow up Quality and Technical Aspects through the project, and established a close communication with insurers and providers to ensure that the train could be restored like it was before the fire. The work included technical evaluations of damages and documentation of status with respect to decisions on replacement or recycling of components.

A number of tests was carried out to ensure good results and in particular that the train would be free from the smell of smoke and electric-, mechanic- and interior damages from fire gases.

The project was successful and the train came back on tracks with no sign of fire, and within time schedule and budget.  

Flytoget AS and their insurers were able to close the damage case without any loose ends.
