Alstom will provide the diagnostic, monitoring, assistance and onsite maintenance of the onboard ERTMS level 2 equipments for 31 trains. The company will also provide the same services for the GSM-R (voice) equipment mounted on the whole fleet (62 trains). The activities will be carried out by the Alstom site in Bologna, engineering center for railway signaling.

 

Meanwhile, Alstom and its Spanish partner, Inabensa, have signed a $23.8 million contract with the government of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia in Spain for the electrification of Granada’s tramway system.

 

Alstom’s share of the project represents $14.2 million and covers installation of 21.7 miles of catenary and seven traction substations. The electrification work should be completed by July 2011.

 

The Grenada tramway will cover 9.8 miles, serving 26 stations and transporting approximately 140,000 passengers. The tramway is expected to transport 12 million passengers during its first year of operation. Alstom’s innovation and technology center in Linares, Spain will handle the electrification work.
