Alstom on Track for a Successful Integration of Bombardier

The last 12 months saw Alstom win a range of projects, mainly for rolling stock and services. These included a large order in Spain for 152 regional trains with RENFE for a total of 1.4bn euros (1.7bn USD) including 15 years associated maintenance for 56 trains, 200 double-deck cars for the METRA Chicago suburban system in the United States for 650m euros (786m USD), 34 regional trains in Lower Saxony, Germany, with associated 30-year maintenance for nearly 760m euros (919m USD), as well as the first order from its acquired product portfolio for Mumbai metro 4 and 4A. It also booked metro systems in Taiwan and in Toulouse in France.

Poupart-Lafarge also highlighted the importance of hydrogen-powered trains specialist Helion, which was acquired at the start of this financial year.

The company, which employs 30 employees in Aix-en-Provence, France, extends Alstom leading positioning on hydrogen trains, expertise that recently saw it awarded two flagship contracts. One in France for 12 trains of a total value of 190m euros (230m USD) and the other in Italy for a first order of six trains and eight additional options totalling roughly 160m (194m USD).

Poupart-Lafarge said the future for Alstom remained encouraging, mentioning post-Covid transport investment in the EU, US and India, most of which includes projects that will have a positive environmental impact.
