Due to large distances and capacities, railway infrastructures often appeal to high voltage. The overhead lines of electrified railways are powered by a traction substation. This is a high voltage station, whether or not provided with a rectifier to convert the AC (alternating current) into DC (direct current). The latter depends on the required voltage on that particular railway track. To control the losses on large distances, many emergency services such as signaling, point heating, amongst others, are powered on high voltage. This is done from substations for emergency services.
Since 2015 we also have a wide knowledge and experience in providing traction substations to public transport companies (railways, trams, metros) and offer a comprehensive range of low and medium voltage products and solutions. We always offer the latest technologies, including an efficient maintenance service to ensure the value of long-term equipment.
