In Belgium, Alstom is the leading supplier of trains, signalling and train services, supported by 2 centres of excellence in Charleroi and a major manufacturing site in Bruges. The two global centers of excellence - one for electrical energy conversion and storage (traction and energy efficiency) - and the second to signalling for mainlines develop and industrialize new-generation systems to meet the current and future needs of operators and passengers.

The signalling solutions unit is excelling with the deployment of the European standard ERTMS (European Railway Traffic Management System) both for equipment on the tracks and onboard trains. These systems manage train safety and increase train frequency. R&D programs of the 2nd centre of excellence are dedicated to new generation traction systems and to systems that reduce the energy consumption of Alstom solutions.

The site in Bruges is an important assembly and testing site of trains as the M7 regional trains for SNCB. Several maintenance contracts (tramways, locomotives, signalling equipments) are executed on the Charleroi and Bruges sites and in the depot for renovation activities in Fleurus with a panel of services as parts and repairs, modernization, development engineering, technical support, tools and test benches.

In 2020, 2021 and 2022, Alstom was awarded a Top Employer Certificate, thereby proving its best HR practices in compliance with the international standards of Top Employers.
