A global player fully focused on transport

This month our Interview section is dedicated to one of the most important company in the world of Transport. Railway Engineering has spoken with Mr. Bruno Marguet, Alstom’s Vice President Strategy, who has explained in deep the mission of the company: “Alstom’s ambition is to be the preferred partner of its customers for their transport solutions” – with an eye on the projects it is working to at the moment. He also speaks about the future plans of Alstom.

What about your core business? What is your specialization?

The company has the widest range of solutions in the market – from high-speed trains to metros and tramways – and associated maintenance, modernization, infrastructure and signalling solutions. Alstom is a world leader in integrated railway systems.

Which are your recent main works?

In the last year, we have had significant awards such as the metros for Sydney, Kochi, Riyadh and Paris; signalling solutions for the Toronto greater area and Denmark; tram systems for Rio de Janeiro, Lusail and Sydney as well as suburban trains for South Africa.

Lately, we announced new big contracts such as the one in India for 800 e-locos, one of the biggest orders the company has ever known. Panama also entrusted us with their second line of metro and the extension of their first line. In France, we have won the Nice tramway with our more recent catenaryless solutions. We will also supply 8 high-speed trains in Italy and new Coradia regional trains in Germany.
