Nexans wins contracts with Italy’s railway network

Cable manufacturer Nexans has been awarded three contracts, worth a total of around €10m (£8.6m), to supply specialised signalling and telecom cables to Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), the state-owned operator of Italy’s railway network.

Over the next two years, more than 2,700km of the Nexans cables will be installed in upgrading and maintenance contracts across Italy, to ensure improved safety for rail traffic and passengers.

The signaling cables (type IS 200 D) and the telecom cables (type TT 241 and TT242) will be manufactured locally in the Nexans Battipaglia facility.

The coaxial cables for the third project will be manufactured in Nexans plant based in Monchengladbach, Germany.
