Under the three-year agreement, Keolis and Wabtec will collaborate to offer tailored solutions for localised markets, with a focus on air-conditioning, braking systems, rolling stock monitoring systems, pantographs and passenger information systems.

The two companies will also focus on developing technologies to reduce energy consumption and improving safety, reliability and comfort.

“This agreement reinforces the commitment to accelerate the deployment of solutions for a more sustainable and ‘greener’ world,” says Ms Lilian Leroux, president of Wabtec’s transport division.
