Basis for Recommendation

The CME-TMS-316 Engineering Change files for the extension of the overhaul period of the Electircal Multiple Unit Pantographs from three to five years do not contain information to substantiate the change.


Iarnród Éireann Railway Undertaking (IÉ-RU), Chief Mechanical Engineer's Department should carry out, in conjunction with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), a condition assessment to determine the correct period for the overhaul of the IÉ-RU pantographs.
