Applus+ has been awarded the inspection of bogies, axles and wheels in the Madrid underground


    Applus+ has been selected by Metro de Madrid to make inspections through non-destructive testing (NDT) in different elements of its rolling stock.

    The service will consist in inspecting bogie frames and fitting areas in axle elements through magnetic particle testing (MPT) and liquid penetrant testing (LPT).

    By inspecting the areas joining stringers and girts, as well as certain critical areas depending on the bogie series, it is possible to guarantee the safety and reliability of Metro de Madrid’s rolling stock. This shows the commitment assumed by Metro de Madrid in terms of maintenance and continuous improvement of its train fleet for the purpose of rendering quality service and safety to users.

    Applus+ has great experience in railway projects, not only in conventional lines, but also in high-speed lines, being able to offer a comprehensive service that covers the inspection of platforms, rails, energy systems and security and communication facilities anywhere around the world.
