A wide choice of standard and modular products
Alstom’s bogie portfolio covers the full range of train applications from tramways up to very high-speed trains. Thanks to our extensive catalogue of modular solutions, each customer can select the appropriate bogie to meet his specific needs, such as track gauge, axle load, maximum operating speed or climatic conditions.
Each year, 3,000 bogies are manufactured and increase Alstom’s proven bogie fleet in successful operation worldwide.
Reducing operator costs
To reduce the total cost of ownership for operators, Alstom provides track-friendly and maintainable bogies.
Moreover, particular attention is paid to designing light equipment (for instance, Alstom tramway bogies are the lightest on the market) which is a key lever to reduce track wear and energy consumption.
Maximising passenger comfort
Our innovative solutions contribute to have even more comfortable trains: easy access, full low-floor vehicles, vibration filtering, low noise level… Alstom bogies contribute to a pleasant travel experience for passengers.
On the high-speed market, thanks to Alstom’s tilting bogies, trains can travel more rapidly through curves on conventional lines (35% faster than a classic train) and up to 250 km/h on high-speed lines, while guaranteeing excellent stability and level of passenger comfort inside the train.
