International rail tech companies coming to Eurasia Rail

E.S.I.M – Subassemblies, Components & Maintenance

ESIM is bringing track diagnostic tools to Eurasia Rail 2019

Italy’s E.S.I.M has been creating a full suit of services and solutions for rail companies for more than two decades. The company’s products are in use on some of Italian rail’s most important rail routes, and now it has a global presence with projects undertaken in India and China to name just two countries.

E.S.I.M has its sights on Turkey, which is perhaps Eurasia’s hottest rail market right now. Perfect, then, for exporters and manufacturers of rail subassemblies, components and maintenance systems.

One particular product group to check out at E.S.I.M’s booth this time around is its diagnostic systems. With Turkey’s ambitious plans to expand its rail network to over 26,000km, Turkish rail operators will want the tools to build, maintain and monitor track across the country – something which E.S.I.M can easily supply.

Thales – IT& Technology

France's rail tech innovators Thales are at Eurasia Rail 2019

Thales is one of the driving forces of a digital rail revolution. The French company has been a pioneer of rail technologies for many years, and is helping usher in a new era of travel. 
How? Big data and applied analytics to create a smoother service for train operators. 

For instance, Thales’ pioneering Mobility Platform combines numerous technologies to analyse information across rail networks. Using sensors placed on train signalling systems, to fare collection points, and even anonymized location data from passengers’ mobile devices, it provides real-time data collection and analysis.

As such, Mobility Platform is able to predict any delays or choke points on a route. As well as this, track maintenance flaws can be highlighted and spotted immediately.
Smart data analysis may dictate the future of rail travel and Thales is at the forefront of this new, exciting frontier. Meet them at Eurasia Rail 2019.

Hyundai EURotem – Rolling Stock Turnkey Projects

Hyundai EURotem has been supplying trains to Turkey for nearly 15 years.

High-speed rail is a massive focus in Turkey right now, and Hyundai EURotem is one of its key players. Hyundai EURotem itself is a joint venture between the Korean firm and domestic fabricators TUVASAS, and is one of the contenders vying for Turkey’s 106 high-speed train set tender.

Away from high-speed rail, EURotem has made a big impact on urban rail, building 24 DMUs and 96 EMUs for Turkish State Railways. It also supplied 440 cars for the huge Marmaray project connecting European and Asian Istanbul.

In December 2017, the JV awas awarded a $156bn contract to build 120 electric vehicles for the Istanbul Metro. A spokesperson for EURotem said it is faithfully following the 50% localisation rules Turkish authorities laid out in this particular tender. 

CRRC - Rolling Stock

Eurasia Rail welcomes the world's largest rolling stock manufacturers CRRC this year.

China’s CRRC makes rivals like Bombardier, Alstom and Siemens look like amateurs when it comes to rolling stock production. With 44% of the entire worldwide rolling stock market, CRRC’s reach is extensive – and now it has reached Turkey.

CRRC is one of the companies competing to win Turkey’s 96-set HST tender, but it also has other methods of making its mark on Turkish railways. The company is eyeing up a potential acquisition of local fabricators Tulomas. That would give the world’s leading rolling stock manufacturer by volume its own manufacturing base directly in Turkey.

Of course, this is CRRC we’re talking about. Exports of its train sets are coming to Turkey. In October 2018, Istanbul’s municipal authorities inked an LRV supply deal with CRRC worth $500m.
