Alstom to supply Lima trainsets

Alstom was awarded a contract worth approximately $190 million for the supply of 19 Metropolis trainsets to the city of Lima, Peru.

Proinversion, an agency promoting private investment in Peru, awarded a 30-year concession for the operation and maintenance of the country's first metro line to the consortium GYM Ferrovias S.A.

Alstom will supply the consortium with 19 trainsets of five coaches each. The first tramset will be delivered in late 2012 and is due to be commissioned in 2013.

The trainsets for the Lima metro will be designed and manufactured by Alstom production facilities in Europe.
