Alstom to exhibit at HSR World Congress

Posted on July 11, 2012

Alstom Transport will be a featured exhibitor at the 8th World Congress & Trade Exhibition on High-Speed Rail July 10-13, 2012 in Philadelphia. The company will exhibit a broad range of products, systems and services for high-speed (HS) and very high-speed (VHS) rail transport at booth # 507. Alstom will also be represented by three high level executives who will give presentations and take part in discussions in three different panel sessions on July 11th and 12th.
 
At the booth, visitors will have the opportunity to discover Alstom’s complete HS and VHS product line, as well as infrastructure, services and signalling. AGV and Euroduplex very high speed train mock-ups will be featured. Designed to run at 224 mph, AGV is the only VHS train in the world to combine articulated architecture with distributed power.

Euroduplex is the world first VHS double-deck train. This train is based on the articulated trainset model and concentrates power systems. The high-speed train Pendolino mock-up will also be on display. Designed to run on existing networks, this train can maintain its high speed even on curves, thanks to the tilting technology developed by Alstom.

Atlas, the first ERTMS-compatible technology on high-speed lines will also be presented at Alstom’s booth. This signalling solution is the most complete on-board and ground control solution, according to the company. Among services that Alstom will be exhibiting is Traintracer, which provides remote monitoring and real-time downloading of a train’s location, operational status, events and potential fault conditions; as well as Partfolio, the interactive illustrative catalog which allows operators to easily and rapidly order spare parts.
 
At the booth, visitors will be able to view videos displaying Alstom HS and VHS products line as well as a special edition on Alstom’s recent success story: the AGV .italo, owned by the private Italian operator NVT, who recently launched into commercial service.
 
On Wednesday July 11, François Lacôte, SVP Technical, will speak at the panel entitled ‘Signalling & Traffic Management’ to be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in room A. François will explain how to boost performances of high-speed lines with ERTMS, specifically with the Alstom’s ATLAS system.
 
On Thursday July 12, Christian Messelyn, Transport Global Solutions Strategy Vice-President will take part in the panel ‘Economy & Finance 1” to be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 pm, in room C. His presentation will be focused on public and private partnerships (PPP) and will demonstrate how this financing solution is innovative and efficient. In the same time slot, Bruno Marguet, SVP Product Strategy Rolling Stock, will speak at the session entitled ‘Rolling Stock 2 – Design & Manufacturing 2’ in room D. His presentation will set out the state of the art & the perspectives of the VHS market.
