High-speed train, a technology showcase for rail excellence

Alstom developed the first High-Speed Train trainset in Belfort in the seventies. Since then, all of the High-Speed Train power cars in operation worldwide have been manufactured in Belfort. And today, Alstom is writing the first chapters of the High-Speed Train of the future.

Alstom, a world champion in Belfort

Alstom Belfort naturally imposed itself as THE global center of expertise for the design, manufacturing and maintenance of the High-Speed Train power cars but also for electric and diesel locomotives.

The Belfort site employs about 500 people in engineering and manufacturing, backed by a network of subcontractors with a wide array of expertise. At 80 kilometers (50 miles) from there, Alstom Ornans manufactures the high technology traction motors assembled in Belfort.
