Alstom to supply, maintain Irish light rail

Posted on September 2, 2009

Ireland’s Railway procurement agency (RPA) has awarded an infrastructure maintenance contract for Dublin’s light rail system, LUAS, to Alstom Transport and partner Dalkia after a competitive tender.

The five-year contract is worth more than $42.9 million, with Alstom’s share being $34.3 million. There is also an option to further extend the contract by another five years.

Alstom and Dalkia have maintained the light rail infrastructure since the LUAS started operating in 2004. Over the course of the contract, which will take effect on October 1, the network will increase by 50 percent as line extensions are put into service. The total network length will then reach 22 miles.

Alstom is currently supplying 26 new Citadis trams to RPA, which will bring the number of trams in operation to 66 by 2010.
