On the track

Rail systems have been at the heart of our activities since 1920. As a full-service provider, Strukton possesses an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of rail infrastructure. By combining this knowledge with the expertise we have gained in Europe and beyond, we are able to realise our mission, which is to make rail transport attractive. Our activities include new construction projects, engineering, modernisation and maintenance of the rail infrastructure, including assets such as signalling, energy solutions, telecommunications and network and data services. We also manage, lease, transport and maintain a modern fleet of vehicles and machinery that we deploy internationally.

In the train

More and more technology is being transferred from the track to the train. Strukton designs, builds and installs electrical systems for rail rolling stock, including panels, switching units and cables. We also specialise in traction electronics used to power and control trains. Our technological solutions remain in operation for the entire life cycle of the train. Our mission is to make existing and new rail vehicles more sustainable and more cost-effective, based on the whole-life costing principle.
