Railway and Urban Transport Electrification

Investment in the world's public transport infrastructure, both in long distance rail and urban transport, is growing under the influence of increased demand in mobility, the development of mass transit systems, rail utility restructuring and the increased involvement of the private sector.

ABB takes care of design, engineering, construction and commissioning of complete traction power supply systems for both long distance rail and mass transit applications.

ABB offers a full range of traction substations for DC and AC applications containing all the switchgear and protection and control equipment, including fault analysis equipment for fast restoration after a disturbance. Our diverse power portfolio for rail and urban transport solutions is complemented by static frequency converter stations, power quality systems, network management systems, energy recuperation and energy storage systems as well as a broad range of system studies and dynamic traction power supply simulations based on powerful software tools. 

By choosing ABB as a system provider, the customer gains a competent, reliable and committed partner for the overall electrical system and a predictable and cost-efficient solution for sustainable mobility. With a turnkey system, our project team acts as a single source of responsibility which minimizes risk and reduces project complexity.
