Lingotto Fiere, Turin, Italy - April 1-4 - Booth 240 - Hall 1

The latest technologies to improve fluidity of the urban, metropolitan and regional transport networks, will be the main characters of Alstom's presence to the 2014 edition of Expo Ferroviaria, which will take place at Lingotto Fiere in Turin from 1 to 4 April.

At the Alstom's booth (No. 240 - Hall 1), visitors will have the chance to discover the energy efficiency of the latest generation of the reversible substation HESOP (Harmonic and Energy Saving Optimizer), under construction for the suburban tram line Milan-Desio-Seregno. Selected by European Commission's LIFE+ Program, which promotes eco-friendly activities, HESOP allows to recover about 99% of the braking energy produced by the trams to be re-injected into the electricity distribution network, to be re-used.
