Alstom wins Argentina contract

Posted on January 17, 2008

Alstom and its partners IECSA, Emepa and Isolux Corsan have been awarded a contract for a high speed rail line between Buenos Aires, Rosario and Cordoba.  


The line will link the three Argentine cities, which are 441 miles apart, in three hours instead of the current 14 hours. The route will be served by eight double-deck high speed trains, each with a capacity of 500 passengers, operating nine return trips daily at speeds of up to 198.83 mph.  


The project will involve the construction of the infrastructure, including seven stations and 484.66 miles of tracks, electrification, signaling (ERTMS level 2), the supply of rolling stock and maintenance. Alstom, the consortium leader, will undertake the overall management and engineering of the project, the supply of rolling stock, signaling communication systems, electrification and maintenance.
