Railway, Public Transport

The éolane Group, present on 4 continents, with 3,000 employees including 200 R&D engineers and highly qualified production teams, guarantees technological performance, proximity and customer intimacy with pragmatism and agility.

The railway sector is a booming sector due to population growth and its qualities in terms of meeting the expectations of sustainable development. 

Customized security solutions

Designed to transport billions of passengers, it is characterized by strong requirements on three axes:

  1. People safety
  2. Reliability of materials
  3. Products’ sustainability

Based on several decades of experience in this field, éolane provides solutions that bring together several technologies for warning about involuntary accidental events or malicious acts: embedded video protection, level crossing safety barrier motor, track points motor, IP camera, connected objects to monitor the equipment being transported, etc.

To meet clients' requirements and expectations as fully as possible, éolane’s teams can also carry out specific developments for each project.
