Nomad goes Dutch with rail deal

Newcastle-based Nomad Digital, a world leading provider of Wi-Fi and ICT solutions to the rail sector, has landed a lucrative export deal to Holland.

The five year partnership will see Nomad provide the Netherlands’ busiest trains with on-board WiFi connectivity and Passenger Information Services (PIS).

The deal comes as the Netherlands cements its place as a world leading rail operator with one of the largest fleets of trains with high-volume WiFi and integrated PIS anywhere in the world. 

Nomad will be working with Dutch company Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) to upgrade its on-board technology platform on the Intercity trains already using Nomad Digital systems.

Andrew Taylor, CEO of Nomad Digital, said: “NS is recognised for its investment in innovative services, and we are delighted to be extending our relationship with them.

“Our partnership enables us to work together to develop pioneering solutions to improve the customer experience and journey.”

Jean-Philippe Tissot, general manager of Nomad Digital, EMEAI, added: “For the last five years we have worked with NS to provide first-class, on-board technology services and information to Dutch passengers. 

“This new agreement is testament to our ability to support NS in delivering cutting-edge passenger services in a consistent fashion, and we are thrilled to remain the partner of choice for NS to implement the next steps of their vision of the Networked Train."

Founded in Newcastle in 2002, Nomad is now an international company with over 300 employees and product development facilities in the UK, Germany and Portugal.
