NOMAD Digital has established a joint venture with EMEF, the maintenance subsidiary of Portuguese Trains (CP) to market onboard condition-based monitoring (CBM) technologies for the rail sector.

The joint-venture, named Nomad Tech, aims to provide operators with a real-time fleet-wide view of how onboard systems and isolated components are performing in the field, allowing the development of proactive rolling stock maintenance programmes.

Nomad says that combining CBM tools with a reliability-centred maintenance strategy can reduce faults by more than 50% and increase availability by up to 20%, therefore reducing life-cycle costs.

Nomad and EMEF have already worked with a number of train operators and rolling stock suppliers on telemanagement technologies, including CP, Northern Rail, Siemens, Alstom, and Hitachi.
