Nomad Digital has signed an agreement with China's main supplier of motors and propulsion control, Changzhou Railcar Propulsion Engineering R&D Centre (CPC). The deal allows Nomad to to market its two-way broadband connectivity for trains to the Chinese mainline rail and metro rail markets.


Under the pact, both parties will work together exclusively to sell and deliver products and services based on Nomad technology. The selling package includes engine condition monitoring, security, and passenger services.

“We are very excited by the potential of this alliance with CPC,” said Nigel Wallbridge, Nomad’s executive chairman. “We have been very impressed not only by CPC’s proven record of success in the Chinese market, but also by their evident track record of building on relationships with foreign companies, shown by the Bombardier CPC Joint Venture, the SMA joint venture, and their recent JV with David Brown. We look forward to forging a successful future together.”
