The new employees are being recruited specifically to work on the development of advanced systems for railway traffic management.

Sławomir Cyza, President and Managing Director of Alstom Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic States, said:

“We'd like to introduce rail signalling products more widely in other countries and the expansion of the Digital Products Engineering Centre of Competence is a way to achieve this goal.

“Rail traffic control systems are equally important to the production of rolling stock products, which may not be as visible as Pendolino, but they ensure smooth traffic, automation and digitalisation of the railways in Poland.

“Thanks to them, the railway transport is faster and less vulnerable to failures.”

Alstom employs more than 4,000 people in Poland and operates over 10 sites in the country including rolling stock and components production sites in Chorzów, Wrocław and Świętochłowice, a signalling systems production site in Katowice and Traxx and Twindexx service centres in Warsaw.

The rail manufacturer deployed Poland’s first ERTMS Level 2 on the majority of the country’s main railway lines, as well as the control centre for Warsaw Metro.

In addition, it’s installed over 30 centralised traffic control (CTC) systems, equipped over 200 stations with computerised interlocking systems and modernised over 1,700 level crossing systems.
