High-speed rail portfolio
End-to-end services from point A to point “Beyond”
Keeping a faster, safer and more efficient train running on time is complex. That’s why Siemens delivers a complete portfolio of services, including train control, power systems and electrification, signaling, rolling stock and maintenance.
Economical financing and leasing models are just the start of a full range of services. Technical care, customized service and innovative diagnostics are all part of our goal to ensure your trains are highly available and operating smoothly, both day in and day out.
Electrification powers everything
State-of-the-art power transmission, substations and overhead catenary systems enable efficient train operations. Environmentally friendly Siemens designs not only help save energy, but they are cost effective as well.
Rail automation ensures safety
Reliable signaling systems and advanced rail automation components are critical to keeping your trains safe at all times. Siemens signaling systems have proven their performance under extreme conditions in many countries around the world. And they
are designed to be both environmentally friendly and cost effective.
Outperforming the train competition
The Siemens Velaro high-speed train is the world’s fastest series-produced train, operating at speeds of up to 220 miles per hour. Velaro stands apart from the others with:
Varying car body widths and trainset configurations
Fuel consumption of nearly 700 miles per gallon per passenger seat
500 trains operating in nine countries on two continents
Run faster, run smarter, with state-of the-art operations control centers
Run faster, run smarter, with state-of the-art operations control centers Keeping your trains running smoothly not only satisfies the operator, it satisfies your passengers. Smart IT solutions from Siemens can fully optimize your operating processes,
so you can:
Top of the class in maintenance
The only thing that moves as fast as the Velaro is the technology that helps it run. Keeping up takes knowledge. The Siemens Rolling Stock Academy helps train personnel in the latest operation and maintenance procedures. And all training courses are customized to meet unique requirements and challenges specific to each operator.
Today's success stories with tomorrows high-speed rail
The trains in Spain
Madrid to Barcelona in less than two and a half hours isn’t only a reality; it’s a delight with a 25% more powerful air-conditioning system.
The ultimate German engineering
Reliability, low life cycle costs, and faster acceleration and deceleration are just the beginning of the story.
Crossing the boundaries of technology and geography
Not only does the Eurostar e320 set the standard for configurability on the London to Paris and Brussels route, it breaks new ground in safety.
Delivery as fast as the train
Is it possible to deliver a high-speed train in 180 days? The Velaro for Turkish Railways proved that, and much more.
Transporting more passengers doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort. Velaro for China offers a fast comfortable ride on 200 to 400 meter long trainsets.
Extreme engineering meets extreme conditions
Three hundred ninety miles from Moscow to Saint Petersburg in only three and a half hours, whether it’s 40 degrees below zero in the shade or 104 degrees in the sun.
