Alstom Belgium reports overflowing order book

Jul 25, 2017

Alstom’s Charleroi-based subsidiary has increased its orders over the past five years.

Specialised in power electronics and signalling systems, the company has contracts in Belgium, the Netherlands, the US, India and China. Its Charleroi site has more than 1,000 employees, of whom 550 are engineers.

Recent cutting-edge developments include the installation of Atlas, its solution developed around the European Railway Traffic Management System.

For the past financial year, the group has recorded orders representing one-and-a-half times its turnover (€7.3 billion). Its order book is currently worth €34.8 billion, which represents nearly five years of business.

Recent contracts include Intercity trains in the Netherlands, new high-speed trains for the Boston-Washington line, and 800 locomotives destined for Indian Railways. Alstom Charleroi dedicates 8% of its turnover to research.
