Alstom to supply equipement for Mexico metro

07/12/2010 AT 07:57

Alstom will supply the electrification, substations, Operations Control Centre (OCC) and signalling, telecommunications and ticketing systems. It will also be responsible for system performance and testing with rolling stock. The rolling stock will be the subject of a separate tender. The launch of the civil engineering works is slated for mid-July 2008 and the project is expected to be finished by late 2011.

Alstom has been present in Mexico City since 1967, the year that Alstom and ICA built the first lines of the city's metro network. In fulfilling this contract, Alstom Transport will rely on its expertise in urban transport, in particular regarding metro systems. Up to now, over 2,500 Metropolis cars have been sold worldwide. Alstom constructed the Singapore metro, the largest automatic metro system in the world. And in China, Alstom is responsible for the signalling on the Beijing metro system's Line 2, which will serve the 2008 Olympic Games facilities.

*The consortium is led by ICA and S.A.B. de CV and also includes Alstom Mexicana, S.A. de CV and Carso Infraestructura y Construcción (CICSA).
