Alstom wins 2 Dublin contracts

Posted on December 12, 2012

Alstom was awarded two contract extensions by Ireland’s Railway Procurement Agency (RPA).

One contract is for maintenance on the Dublin’s Luas tram system infrastructure, while the second is for maintenance of Citadis trams on the Luas Green Line.

The approximately $38 million infrastructure contract relates to the entire Luas system and extends an existing maintenance contract from 2014 to 2019. Alstom is responsible for the maintenance of track, the overhead catenary system, power supply, control systems (including signaling, telecommunications and CCTV) and some aspects of the cleaning.

The company is working in partnership with energy services provider Dalkia on the infrastructure contract.

The vehicle maintenance contract, worth approximately $29 million, relates to the 26 Alstom-supplied Citadis trams based at the Sandyford depot, which run on the Green Line in the city, and also extends the existing contract five years to 2019.

Alstom has supplied a total of 66 Citadis trams for Dublin in two different sizes. The company also extended 26 of the original trams with the addition of an extra car.
