Bombardier-Alstom consortium wins Spanish high-speed rail control contract

Posted on September 22, 2015

A consortium between Bombardier, Alstom and Indra has won the contract to supply signalling systems and maintenance services for the new high-speed section of the Madrid-Lisbon railway corridor in Spain's Extremadura region.

The project, awarded by Spain's Administrator of Railway Infrastructure (ADIF) has a total value of approximately $185 million. Bombardier's share is valued at approximately $86 million US; Alstom's share is valued at approximately $70 million, and Indra's share is approximately $28 million.

The Bombardier-led consortium will deliver the design, procurement, installation, testing and commissioning of the signalling and communication systems. This includes installing a European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) Level 2 on the 164 km Plasencia-Caceres and Caceres-Badajoz sections of the line. The project also includes a 20-year maintenance regime to commence at the end of phase one of the signalling system delivery.

Bombardier will implement its radio-based BOMBARDIER INTERFLO 450 ERTMS Level 2 solution for the entire line. Alstom is responsible for the electronic interlocking system and will supply the Smartlock 300 solution, and Indra will implement the Spanish automatic train protection (ASFA) system.
