Dellner’s modernization and upgrade programs provide proven solutions to support you on this journey.

Build on our expertise and knowledge

A dedicated Dellner Service engineering team supports train operators and train maintainers in all aspects of modernizing and upgrading their fleet: Whether concept, design or the development of prototypes – our experienced engineers will always find the best solution for every train and every Train Connection System.

We get your trains ready for the digital age

One of Dellner’s core competences is Ethernet connectivity. We can support the upgrade of older fleets with modern on-train technology, such as enabling Wi-Fi, infotainment, and surveillance equipment. This is done either by using the existing ethernet train backbone (ETB) or by adding new contacts to the current electrical couplers. If required, we can also add electrical couplers to an existing fleet – whatever you need, we have the solution!

Refurbishment: from old to new

In what way can the modernization of trains be made more economical? The answer is: refurbishment. We extend the life cycle of older couplers and gangways by completely refurbishing them and upgrading them with modern technology. In this way, the operating times of the Train Connection System can be extended considerably – without compromising on safety. Dellner is an expert in this field. We have already carried out numerous modernization projects and successfully refurbished used components to an as new state.
