Owners choose Alstom propulsion solutions safe in the knowledge that they have a flexible, knowledgeable and experienced partner with a proven track record in rolling stock and propulsion technology. Complying with the latest safety standards, Alstom propulsion components offer high reliability, efficiency and maintainability for worry-free and cost-effective operations.
For all vehicles and environments
Our traction systems – available for all types of rail vehicles, including those not manufactured by Alstom, from trams to locomotives and from regional to very-high-speed trains – are specifically designed for all types of traction and operating conditions. Our solutions are guaranteed to meet a wide range of requirements for different voltage levels, extreme temperatures or humidity levels, or when fitting into specific spaces on vehicles for higher passenger capacity.
Eco-designed / Green Traction
Alstom’s technology solutions are based on eco-design principles: low noise, energy efficiency (including, for example, regenerative braking, natural cooling), high recyclability and low lifecycle costs. As a result of continuous efforts to limit environmental impact, Alstom has developed low carbon alternative traction systems for operation on non-electrified lines, including hydrogen fuel cell-based traction systems and energy storage-based traction systems.
