The Channel Tunnel, ready to welcome the new generation of high-speed trains

Eurotunnel has commissioned the world’s most powerful static compensator (VSC technology) connected to a railway electrical traction system, the STATCOM.

STATCOM technology open up new growth opportunities by facilitating access to cross-Channel services for new generation high-speed trains. This technology developed by GE, and in collaboration with Eurostar, is the result of a €45 million investment[1] and 5 years of research. Eurotunnel will double the reactive compensation power in the Channel Tunnel.
