Reaffirming its strength as a trusted global transportation supplier and leveraging its long lasting presence in Singapore, Thales is selected once again by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore to deliver modernised Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gates on Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) lines across the country.
The world railway market is organised around three main segments: rolling stock, signalling and infrastructure. This sector is particularly dynamic in Europe. On the Old Continent, urban areas and regions prioritise the modernisation of existing networks, infrastructure (roads, docks, highway structures, etc.) and signalling (on board and/or on the ground), as well as rejuvenation of the rolling stock.
Alstom has been selected by Société du Grand Paris, in agreement with Île-de-France Mobilités, to supply the rolling stock for Line 18 of the “Grand Paris Express” network (in France). The contract also includes solutions for driverless automated systems, data transmission, centralised supervision controls and the overall integration of the transport system
