Here we have, Alstom’s Acela Liberty high-speed train for Amtrak which made its debut in the spring of 2022 with rail service linking Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C. This inter-city service will stretch across approximately 457 miles at speeds up to 220 mph.
Alstom designed and built these high-speed trains based on proven technology with more than 1,000 high-speed trains in service worldwide. Acela provides more space and improved comfort for passengers, with enhanced safety and reduced energy consumption.
Our distributor, Consilium Safety, specializes in the fire protection for the rolling stock industry and is delivering the fire detection, line heat detectors, and the Stat-X® fire suppression. Our distributor was instrumental in the integration of Stat-X fire suppression systems which are protecting the power distribution area of the power car on all 28 new trainsets. This is a thirty-year project.
