A New Lick of Paint
Alstom has installed large-scale, specialist painting booths in the modernisation centre at Widnes, which ensures the re-painting work is completed to the highest quality and in the quickest time. Alstom has also installed Industry 4.0 virtual reality painting simulators to train the team and validate the work.
Over 80 employees have been hired by Alstom to deliver this project, including five apprentices. A further 15 apprentices will join Alstom in September, when Alstom opens the Alstom Academy for Rail on the same site.
