Root Cause Analysis for a national rail provider delivers new insight into axle box failure with Iarnród Éireann
National provider of rail and related services in Ireland, Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail is a subsidiary of Córas Iompair Éireann (CIÉ – Irish Transport System).
A root cause analysis by Romax engineers and consultants provided a detailed and cost-effective investigation based on deep knowledge of axle box bearing and gearboxes, comprising three linked work packages and using optimised simulation software. The robust findings enabled Iarnród Éireann to move to the next stage in the plans of optimising rolling stock, protecting operations and reducing risks posed by axle box failure.
