Alstom Will Make India Manufacturing Hub For International Markets: Alain Spohr

With several large projects underway in the mainline and urban networks, Alstom is uniquely positioned to meet India's changing and growing mobility needs, believes Alain Spohr, managing director for India and South Asia. In an exclusive interview with Sanjay Jog, Spohr talks about the opportunities, government policies, and company's projects and strategies.

What is Alstom's India strategy?

Alstom's journey in India began with a transfer of technology for Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches for the Shatabdi and Rajdhani trains. At present, the company is executing metro projects in Chennai, Kochi, Jaipur, Bengaluru and Lucknow. In the mainline network, Alstom's signalling and power supply systems are a part of eastern dedicated freight corridor. The company's strong base in India is further strengthened by its new electric locomotive factory at Madhepura in Bihar. The high horsepower locomotives manufactured there will be the most advanced in the Indian Railways fleet. From here, expansion across current metro systems will continue to be strong drivers for Alstom's business in India. We want our solutions to be considered as the reference technically, economically and environmentally for mobility in the country. Combined with this is our strategy to make India our manufacturing hub for international markets, having successfully delivered export projects out of Sri City this year. Our recruitment plan for India is in step with this growth and investment plan.
