Rail transportation networks are essential for the development of a national economy. In a world that is increasingly fast moving and full of opportunities, a whole series of complex conditions need to be satisfied to meet the growing demand for both highly efficient national and cross-border journeys.
Efficient cross-border rail transport can take you by train from one end of Europe to the other. As a prerequisite, train and infrastructure must speak the same language, in all countries. Being at the heart of Europe, Austria’s rail network connects European corridors from East to West and from North to South. Thales supports the interoperability of Austria’s railway network with its train control solutions.
Together with its customers, Thales strives to push forward innovation and big ambitions. Whatever it takes.
ÖBB relies on signalling technology from Thales for Austria’s first railway line without signals
In Austria, Thales is market leader in the field of signalling and train control technology (ETCS)
Railway operators and infrastructure managers not only in Austria but worldwide rely on rail technology made in Austria. With our innovative and diverse team we build a reference market for signalling and train control technology worldwide. Hannes Boyer, CEO Thales Austria
Reliable partner for national and global turn-key projects
Combined with many years of experience in railway engineering and operations, Thales in Austria built up profound knowledge of route control systems and the complete rail environment. With its unique rail experts, the Austrian team works as a competence centre within the global Group.
Thales in Austria delivers signalling solutions and train control systems for wide-range as well as turn-key projects to central- and middle Europe but also to further international markets, such as Thailand and South Korea.
With more than 25 years of market presence, the Hungarian market is particularly important for Thales in Austria. During all these years, Thales has been able to establish itself not only as the market leader in the field of signalling and train control technology, but has also, as a result of a strong Austrian-Hungarian cooperation, played a major role in creating the infrastructural and operational preconditions for rail transport to become more efficient and more attractive for both passengers and freight.
Together we create technology systems that make railway transport better and safer
