Resident Engineer at Alstom

Project description:

On-site engineering support through the integration of a Nexans engineer in the R&D department of the customer (Alstom).

Customer challenges:

  • An overweight problem jeopardized a new major train project : 300 kg needed to be eliminated
  • Cabling was the only area which could be optimized
  • Alstom did not have the skills or tools to simulate alternative designs

Nexans’ solutions:

  • A Nexans engineer spent 2 weeks within the customer engineering department
  • Through new cabling designs and product innovations, 336 kg could be saved
  • Nexans Research Center was capable of proving by numerical simulation that these proposals would not endanger the reliability and lifetime of the new trains
  • Alstom agreed to co-develop an entirely new product range granting Nexans a multi-year exclusivity on the supply of this product
