Lima metro concessionaire Graña y Montero Ferrovias has awarded Alstom a €200m contract for the supply of 139 metro cars to operate on Line 1.
Deliveries are scheduled to be completed by 2019 and will include 20 six-car Metropolis trainsets, in addition to 19 cars to lengthen from five to six cars the existing trainsets which Alstom delivered in 2011. As with the original build, the trainsets will be manufactured at Alstom’s Barcelona factory in Spain.
The extra rolling stock is expected to increase the capacity of Line 1 from 20 000 passengers/h to 48 000. Ridership has been growing and now stands at 320 000 passengers per day.
