Railway Cables and Solutions


As the world continues its rapid urbanisation, planning strategies, most notably for public transport lines, must adapt to meet demand.

Alongside the infrastructure challenges posed by the development of new megacities, the railway industry must also consider escalating customer expectations, fierce competition and frequent advancements in technology.

Railway systems themselves have undergone an intense period of modernisation with complex automation developments such as driverless trains and on-board communication systems. These advances demand cables with increasingly high levels of performance, reliability and safety.
