Your sustainable infrastructure solutions provider

Alstom has been providing sustainable infrastructure solutions in Australia and New Zealand for more than 100 years and currently employs approximately 450 people across 10 sites that include workshops, offices and manufacturing facilities.

Alstom is a major supplier of Rolling Stock, Signalling and associated Services for the rail industry throughout Australia. Our proud history includes the manufacturing of diesel/electric Locomotives in Brisbane, Queensland in the 1940’s and 1950’s to when the Business made a significant step acquiring the Ballarat workshop from the Victorian Government in 1999, as a local industrial base for rolling stock build, renovation and components overhaul.

In the more recent years, Alstom continues to support the national Transport Sector. Our X’Trapolis trains dominate the Melbourne suburban network alongside our Citadis Trams that also operate in both Melbourne and Adelaide. In Sydney, we are supplying our latest Metropolis rolling stock and CBTC signalling system for the new Sydney Metro Northwest, including the maintenance for 15 years. The latest evolution of our Citadis tram, the X05, will bring a new dimension Sydney’s public transport network as part of the Sydney Light Rail project.
