French multinational company Alstom was awarded two contracts for around €210 million by Metro de Santiago for 20 years of maintenance of the trains that run on lines 2 and 4, in addition to replacing traction and on-board computer systems with last generation units. The contracts were awarded in September 2019.
In total, 83 Alstom trains -11 model NS04 that circulate on Line 2 and 72 model AS02 that run on Lines 4 and 4A-, will receive minor and major preventive maintenance services, to guarantee the operation of the car in optimal conditions.
In parallel, Alstom must replace, within five years, the entire on-board information systems (TCMS), as well as the traction systems with state-of-the-art units, which will improve performance indicators and train obsolescence management of the underground train, in order to ensure the replacement of parts.
Michel Boccaccio, SVP Latin America at Alstom, said:
We are very pleased to have been awarded these contracts with Metro de Santiago, as it will allow us to deliver high-quality solutions to passengers who use the metro daily, in addition to ensuring the useful life of the trains and reducing the risks of failures, guaranteeing high levels of safety and quality, and using the best technology. These long-term contracts demonstrate our client’s confidence in our services.
