Alstom consortium to supply Spanish traction substations

Posted on November 18, 2010

[IMAGE]Alstom-7.jpg[/IMAGE]A consortium comprising Alstom, Electren and CYMI signed a contract with ADIF, Spain's largest railway network administrator, to supply traction substations for a section on the Madrid-Levante very high-speed line.

The Madrid-Levante very high-speed line will link the cities of Madrid, Cuenca, Albacete, Valencia, Alicante, Castellon and Murcia. When the first section of approximately 272 miles enters commercial operation by the end of 2010, the Spanish very high-speed network will represent the longest network in Europe.

The work will be performed on a stretch in eastern Spain between Albacete, Alicante and Valencia. The contract comprises the supply and installation of three traction substations, 18 autotransformer centers and the remote control of the system, including a four-year maintenance agreement.

With this work and the work previously completed, Alstom Transport is a key supplier in more than 80 percent of high-speed traction substations installed in Spain and is in charge of the maintenance of the totality of high-speed traction substations installed in Spain.
