High-speed and very-high-speed trains: a complete portfolio for every need

New generation of very-high-speed trains, increasing passenger comfort while reducing energy consumption and maintenance / @Alstom / Advanced & Creative design

High- and very-high-speeds trains at a glance

  • Scalable and adaptable
  • Proven technology
  • Reduced operating costs (energy and maintenance)
  • Improved passenger experience
  • Certified in 25 countries, crossing 19 borders

Alstom’s Avelia high- and very-high-speed train range covers maximum operating speeds between 200 km/h and 350 km/h. Models can be either single-deck or double deck, and with or without tilting technology. With a large portfolio, Avelia solutions are the largest offering on the market for high-speed and very-high-speed solutions.

Tailored to needs

With the Avelia range, operators and passengers have the train that precisely matches their requirements, all supported by long-standing experience and proven technology.

SBB Pendolino connects three countries, running from Frankfurt to Milan via Basel. The vehicles are therefore equipped with three different train protection systems

Avelia trains can be adapted to different track gauges, power supplies, carbody widths and passenger capacities, with a full choice of interiors, seat pitches and ambiances.

Avelia trains are, of course, compliant with local and international regulations (TSI). When running in Europe, trains have embedded ERTMS signalling technology and can work on four different traction power voltages.

Comfort for all passengers

The Avelia range of solutions offers all categories of passengers the perfect journey. Carriages can be produced in standard, first-class and business-class versions, with options for children’s areas, shops, restaurant cars or kitchens. Climate control is efficient in even the most challenging winter environments. Passengers can also enjoy services such as on-board Wi-Fi, electric sockets and reclining seats with individual reading lights, or flexible luggage racks for skis, bicycles and outsize luggage.

Interior design and equipment provide passengers with an exceptional travel experience

Running at speeds of up to 300 km/h (186 mph), trains are fitted with Tiltronix technology in order to take bends faster and thus reduce journey times.

The benefits of Tiltronix

One of Avelia Pendolino and Avelia Liberty’s most characteristic features, Tiltronix, allows trains to tilt into a bend by up to 8%. Tilting technology enables 30% higher speeds round bends, resulting in shorter journey times on existing conventional networks, with a minimum of new investment in the infrastructure. Tilting technology also reduces energy losses, as less braking is required before bends. Tiltronix is cost-efficient with the system paying for itself within 5-6 years.

Lower cost per passenger

With the articulated architecture requiring fewer bogies, the train is lighter. Energy consumption per train is thus lower, reducing operating costs.

With a keen eye on the longer term, Alstom’s engineers designed Avelia trains to be cheaper to own throughout their life cycle. Maintenance factors are incorporated at the design phase of the trains to ensure future reliability and ease of maintenance, with costs further lowered by 10% by applying predictive maintenance techniques.

With a more compact, simplified and rationalized architecture, TGV M, part of Alstom's new Avelia Horizon range, benefits from reduced acquisition and maintenance costs for 20% more capacity.
