Alstom in the UK and Ireland
Alstom has been part of the rail industry here for over a century. One third of all daily passenger rail journeys in the UK are on an Alstom train and half of the trains on the London Underground were made by Alstom. The first ever Citadis tram was created for Dublin, Ireland.
We provide the widest range of smart solutions in the rail market, from innovative high-speed rolling stock, metros and trams to maintenance, modernisation, infrastructure and signalling.
Our new technology centre at Widnes, where we have built a world-class training academy and modernisation facility opened in 2017.
Alstom recognise the importance of implementing a sustainable business model which supports the transition to sustainable transport systems in order to ensure the long-term success of our planet. Alstom UK and Ireland therefore commit to embedding sustainability into every element of our organisation – from reducing the carbon footprint of our work sites through to increasing the diversity of the rail industry workforce. As a sustainable business by nature, we pride ourselves on delivering a wide range of innovative and environmentally friendly technologies and solutions.

Reference projects in the UK and Ireland
We built the 56 Pendolinos running on the West Coast Mainline. Passenger numbers are now at 37 million per annum and the fleet runs 17.8 million miles every year. We have converted 31 trains from nine-car to 11-car.
Alstom built the UK’s very first High Speed Train, the 38 original e300 Eurostars that operate between London, Paris and Brussels. We recently donated two powercars to the National College for a new generation to train on.
An Alstom-led infrastructure joint venture delivered the final 20 km of track and overhead line for the final phase of the Paris – London HS1.
We built and service 106 trains on London Underground’s busiest line, the Northern Line, guaranteeing 96 in operation every day.
On-going projects in UK and Ireland
The ATC unincorporated joint venture is delivering the system-wide fit out package of the 21km twin Crossrail tunnels under London.
Alstom is delivering innovative new solutions to provide signalling for Crossrail outside the main tunnel and is delivering Network Rail’s Bristol Area Signalling Renewal & Enhancement.
The ABC joint venture is the UK’s biggest electrification provider, currently working on the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Project.
The first contract being delivered in Widnes is a £90m complete re-paint of the Pendolino fleet to extend their life.
