Alstom consortium wins Brazilian order

Posted on November 28, 2012

Alstom, in a consortium with CAF Brazil, FrotaPoa, was selected to supply 15 metro trainsets to the Company of Urban Trains of Porto Alegre Brazil, Trensurb.

With the order, Trensurb will see its metro fleet increased by 60%. The trains, which are intended for Metro line 1 of Porto Alegre, are scheduled to be delivered for the soccer World Cup in 2014.

Alstom will execute just under 90% of the contract and supply the major part of the metro trains. The bogies will be supplied by CAF Brazil.      

The metro for Trensurb is part of Alstom Metropolis range. Made of stainless steel, the 15 train-sets can accommodate up to 1,000 passengers. Four large automatic doors per car and wide gangways will enhance the fluidity and accessibility for all passengers especially those with reduced mobility.

Each car is fitted with a high-performance air-conditioning system with automatic temperature control to enhance passenger and driver comfort. The Metropolis train is also equipped with a passenger information and communication system including CCTV for increased security.
