Trains & Trams

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 around passenger comfort, operational efficiency, safety and speed.

Advanced on board technology requirements, including enhanced data and power transmission mean 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 Group 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? Minimizing the size and weight of cables and reducing the wall thickness of insulation and outer sheaths. All whilst maintaining or enhancing performance.

We offer a full range of products from medium-voltage to instrumentation cables, from high-temperature to thin-wall designs. Our materials have been specially developed to improve the electrical, mechanical and thermal capabilities, fire performance and life expectancy of the products, using sophisticated advanced technologies.
