SNCF Selects Nexala to Manage Critical Components for their Fleets
Technology Company Nexala has increased its international expansion by securing SNCF, the French state run rail company, as their latest customer. The contract with a value of €3.5m for the period 2013-2016 was formally signed in the presence of Eamon Gilmore, Tainiste and Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Irish embassy in Paris over the St Patrick’s Day weekend.
Nexala will provide SNCF with systems to manage critical components across their fleet of trains, including the high speed TGV train fleet.
