Rail Systems

A robust and efficient rail transport system is a powerful force in transforming the urban and rural India, fostering inclusive and sustainable economic growth. Hitachi, with its holistic rail system integration and manufacturing solutions, leverages state-of-the-art technology to support a smart railway system that enhances the Quality of Life of citizens.

Rolling Stock

The modernization of Indian railways has propelled the need for energy-efficient rolling stock, high on reliability, speed, safety, and efficiency. New materials, optimized train shaping, and aerodynamic designs promise cost-effective and energy-efficient trains with lower environmental impact. Hitachi’s future-ready rolling stock maximizes safety and economies of scale, improves energy efficiency, and ushers in world-class rail infrastructure.


Signalling Systems

Digital transformation of railways sees digital signalling and advanced train control systems replacing the conventional rail signalling. The new deployment greatly enhances passenger safety, maximizes network capacity and operational efficiency, and provides real-time data to operators and train drivers for punctual, reliable, and failsafe services. With its state-of-the-art signalling technologies such as digital Automatic Train Protection (ATP), Automatic Train Operation (ATO) and Communication Based Train Control (CBTC), Hitachi leads the Indian rail digital revolution.


On-board Components

Powerful transformational changes are underway for building an agile and energy-efficient rail network. As one of the preferred propulsion unit providers to Japan’s largest railway operators, Hitachi is leveraging its technical expertise and innovative capabilities to develop in-house on-board rolling stock components such as ATI, HVAC, CPU Core Unit & Traction Housing for superior long-term performance of rolling stocks.


Traffic Management

India endeavours to set up intelligent transportation with a robust traffic management system. This reflects in real-time passenger information delivery, data-driven operations planning, and optimized train movements to effectively meet India’s rising urban mobility requirement. Hitachi’s advanced traffic management system provides real-time information on train movement, detects and resolves conflicts, relays warnings, and automatically readjusts the train’s operations in case of disruption, promising a seamless journey for the customer.


Power Supply

Powering the enormous rail infrastructure needs innovative technologies and solutions that save energy and lower maintenance costs. Hitachi’s cutting-edge design capabilities guarantees environment-friendly power supply equipment that meets technical specifications and customer requirements such as compact design, low maintenance, reliability, safety, and reduced carbon footprint.


Station Equipment

Citizens are increasingly demanding superior infrastructure and services at major transit hubs like railway stations. Challenge is to deliver comfort and convenience of movement, despite rush hours, for all sections and age groups and enhance the Quality of Life. Hitachi is geared up to meet this challenge through its unbeatable station infrastructure – escalators, elevators, and moving walkways – that keep citizen comfort and safety first and usher in an ultra-modern railway station.


Service Solutions

Developments in information and communication technologies (ICT) promise the arrival of an Intelligent Transport System that enhances operational efficiency and meets passenger expectations. Hitachi’s smart passenger/information service solutions, encompassing on-board passenger information display, advertising management, smart card management, and seat reservation systems, help the railways take the big leap to intelligent rail system and deliver excellent customer service.
