  • Modern software technologies are increasingly becoming Alstom's specialty in Poland

  • Software developers from Poland will develop global IT systems for railway applications

13 July 2022 – Alstom in Poland is expanding its Digital Products Engineering Centre of Competence in Katowice. As a result, the company is currently actively seeking 150 new software developers, testers and other IT experts who will work in particular on the development of advanced systems for railway traffic management in Katowice.

Experts employed in Katowice will create solutions to be used worldwide in cooperation with other Alstom Engineering Centres of Competence in Italy, Sweden and Belgium.

“We have been developing local competences in Poland in nearly all the areas of railway business operations - from railway infrastructure to advanced trains for almost 100 years in Katowice. The new investment in the Digital Products Engineering Centre of Competence proves that the company has been deeply rooted in the Polish market.”

“We have been developing local competences in Poland in nearly all the areas of railway business operations - from railway infrastructure to advanced trains for almost 100 years in Katowice. The new investment in the Digital Products Engineering Centre of Competence proves that the company has been deeply rooted in the Polish market. Our IT solutions are designed on stable and proven modern product platforms,” says Adam Juretko, Vice President of Alstom Poland and Managing Director of Alstom ZWUS.

Alstom deployed Poland's first European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) Level 2 on the majority of the country's main railway lines, as well as the control centre for Warsaw Metro. In addition, we installed over 30 Centralised Traffic Control (CTC) systems, equipped over 200 stations with computerised interlocking systems and modernised over 1,700 level crossing systems.

“We would like to introduce rail signalling products more widely in other countries and the expansion of the Digital Products Engineering Centre of Competence is a way to achieve this goal,” says Sławomir Cyza, President and Managing Director of Alstom Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic States. “Rail traffic control systems are equally important to the production of rolling stock products, which may not be as visible as Pendolino, but they ensure smooth traffic, automation and digitalisation of the railways in Poland. Thanks to them, the railway transport is faster and less vulnerable to failures. Alstom is the only manufacturer in Poland who has the full portfolio of products for railway applications.”

Alstom employs more than 4,000 people in Poland and operates in 11 sites in the country, including three rolling stock and components production sites - in Chorzów, Wrocław and Świętochłowice, a signalling systems production site in Katowice, a Pendolino service centre, as well as Traxx and Twindexx service centres in Warsaw, a Traxx service centre in Toruń, a locomotive components production site in Łódź and a Coradia bogie production site in Piaseczno.
