SNCF targets greater international involvment

SNCF has said it aims to increase the share of its revenue coming from international projects and operations to 30 per cent by 2017.

As well as operating national and regional services throughout France, the state-owned rail giant, through its subsidiaries, has delivered projects around the world in Australia, Morocco, Russia, South America, the UK, the Middle East and India.

Currently 25 per cent of SNCF’s revenue comes from its international enterprises.

Examples include the Dubai Metro, which Systra played a major role in, Arep which has designed several key railway stations around the world, including China’s Wuhan station (pictured), and Keolis, which runs the UK’s high-speed Javelin trains.

President of SNCF Guillaume Pepy said: “France is on the podium of champions public transport. This is a growth driver for the group.”
