Alstom has signed a Central Service Agreement with PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A., managing the Polish national railway network.

The contract aims to offer post-warranty maintenance for railway traffic control devices and computer systems produced by Alstom. This includes Alstom’s railway traffic control systems, track vacancy system (SOL), and power supply. Alstom will provide service support for 328 facilities in 17 Railway Line plants located throughout Poland. The scope of services includes maintaining a modern reporting system, carrying out periodic inspections and ongoing repairs, spare parts management, reporting, and training. The contract was signed for two years, lasting until the end of 2025.

“The agreement with PKP PLK represents the most extensive and valuable service contract undertaken by the Katowice branch of Alstom. This marks our third consecutive contract of this type, undertaken for the manager of the national railway network. Our common objective is to ensure the ongoing maintenance of railway traffic control systems and speed up the resolution of potential problems. I am confident that the skills and dedication of the entire Alstom team will contribute to enhancing the appeal of railways as a comfortable, safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly mode of transportation," emphasizes Adam Juretko, Managing Director of the Katowice branch of Alstom in Poland.

Alstom is one of Europe's largest producers of railway traffic control systems and devices. It was the first in Poland to implement the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) level 2 on most of the country's main railway lines and the control center for the Warsaw Metro. In addition, the company built 30 centralized railway traffic control (CTC) systems, equipped over 200 stations with computer interdependence systems, and modernized over 1,700 crossing signaling systems.
