Today Alstom Russia offices employ near 600 people.    

President's message

Welcome to Alstom in Russia!

Our company is present in Russia for almost 40 years during which it has participated in a number of key projects in our four sectors, Transport, Thermal and Renewable Power and Grid. Information about them as well as our news, press releases, product brochures etc. you will find on this internet site.

Alstom was the first foreign company in Russia to be invited to build a new unit for combined cycle plant (Mosenergo's TPP-26, Moscow). The 420 MW unit, which was inaugurated in June 2011, boasts the highest efficiency in Russia and greatly reduces gas consumption.

Alstom has also contributed by its high speed train Pendolino-Allegro to bring two big European cities, St.Petersburg and Helsinki, much closer to each other. In September 2013, Allegro carried its millionth passenger. Our Russian subsidiaries such Alstom Power Stavan, specialized in environmental control systems, Alstom Turbomashines and Alstom Uniturbo (engineering for the steam/nuclear power plants), have all celebrated their 20th anniversary and are now serving markets all over Europe and Alstom's business worldwide.

Localization via joint ventures in transport, power and grid is the Alstom strategy in Russia and it has already born fruits. EP20 electric locomotives jointly developed with our Russian partner Transmashholding, able to run at 200 km/h, are the fastest in Russia and already in operation in 1520 mm gauge space, including the Moscow-Sochi “Olympic” line.  The next one, joint with TMH, the freight 2ES5 loco, has recently got its certificate. Alstom and Atomenergomash will locally manufacture Arabelle half speed steam turbines for nuclear power plants in Russia and abroad. Alstom and Soyuz are manufacturing together high voltage switchgear as part of on-going efforts to modernize the Russian electrical grid. The list is far from being exhaustive.

Ethics & compliance is a top priority for Alstom worldwide. We have invested a great deal of effort in the deployment and integration of ethical rules across the local organisation.

Always committed to an ethical business approach, with the most comprehensive and balanced portfolio of generation, energy transmission and railway equipment and the rolling stock in the market, Alstom confirms its strategy to become a key partner for Russian infrastructure development.

Developed by TRTrans; 200 locos ordered. The first EP20 was officially handed to RZD on 30 November 2012. Commercial service started in 2013. EP20s are currently running on the Moscow-Sochi “Olympic” line. The journey takes around 25 hours – trains driven by EP20 are able to operate under both alternating and continuous current which allows not to change the engine along the route.
  • 2ES5 electric freight locomotives (client Russian Railways): the most powerful loco in Russia, able to run at speeds of up to 120 km/h pulling freight convoys weighting more than 6000 t. Developed by TRTrans; 200 «double bobo» locos ordered. Certification completed. 2 first locos started to operate in Siberia in December 2014.
  • Electric locomotives for Kazakhstan (client Kazakh Railways): developed by the JV EKZ created by Alstom, TMH and the Kazakh Railways; 295 electric locomotives (200 freight & 95 passenger) ordered and will be manufactured at the EKZ plant inaugurated in December 2012 in Astana. In particular, the freight locomotive KZ8A, one of the most powerful in the world, is already in service. The passenger KZ4AT has recently started the commercial operation on Astana-Kokshetau line. Both of them require minimal maintenance and, thanks to its modular design, provides high reliability along with low life-cycle costs.
  • First in Russia 100% low-floor three-section tramway is developed for the countries with the track gauge 1524 mm, in accordance with GOST standards, and based on the Citadis™ platform by Alstom. The tram’s design ensures an optimal integration into existing transport infrastructure and can be operated at temperatures from from -40 ° C to +40 ° C. One tram is currently in commercial operation on tram service#17 in Moscow. 4 other low-floor tramways are delivered to St. Petersburg. Alstom and TMH are building the joint manufacture facilities to produce these trams in St. Petersburg.
