Alstom has been part of Belgian railway history for 130 years through its connection with the former rail transport equipment subsidiary of SA Ateliers de Constructions Électriques de Charleroi (ACEC). Today, Alstom Belgium employs 1050 people and is involved in approximately 100 major projects worldwide.
The site in Charleroi has developed unique expertise in electrical and electronic systems within two centres of excellence that operate at a global level : one focuses on traction systems and the other on signalling and railway traffic control systems, with a particular emphasis on equipment that complies with the European standard (European Rail Traffic Management System/ ERTMS).
The teams develop systems, manufacture prototypes, perform tests and trials, complete approval procedures and manage integration projects.
An after-sales service activity completes the offer for these product groups.
Alstom Belgium pursues an ambitious growth strategy by actively investing in R&D.
The work carried out by its team of 100 research engineers makes a significant contribution to the development of a sustainable rail transport system.
