Escalating customer expectations, fierce competition and rapid technological changes are all driving change in the rolling stock supply chain.
Train manufacturers are looking for new solutions in both product and systems development to meet requirements for passenger comfort, operational efficiency, safety and speed.
Advanced onboard technology requirements, including enhanced data and power transmission, means a growing number of cables are needed on rolling stock vehicles and carriages, including tramlines, underground and mass transit lines, but also diesel and regional trains.
Prysmian is helping to meet train and tram requirements
As the world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry, we’re promoting and driving product development and innovation in the sector. How? By minimizing the size and weight of cables and reducing the wall thickness of insulation and outer sheaths. All while maintaining or enhancing performance.
We offer a full range of products from medium-voltage to instrumentation cables and high-temperature to thin-wall designs. Our materials have been specifically developed to help improve electrical, mechanical and thermal capabilities, fire performance and life expectancy of the products with sophisticated advanced technologies.
