The line will link Buenos Aires and Cordoba, 710 km apart,
in three hours instead of the 14 hours the journey takes today.
It will be served by eight double deck very high speed trains,
each with a capacity of 500 passengers, operating nine return
trips every day at speeds of up to 320 kph.

This turnkey project will involve the construction of the
infrastructure, including 7 stations and 780 kilometres of
tracks, electrification, signalling (ERTMS level 2), the supply
of rolling stock and maintenance. Alstom, the consortium
leader, will undertake the overall management and engineering
of the project, the supply of rolling stock, signalling,
communication systems, electrification and maintenance. The
trains will be manufactured at Alstom’s French plants and
assembled at the Alstom site at La Plata, in the province of
Buenos Aires. IECSA will be in charge of civil works with
Isolux Corsan and EMEPA will participate in the construction of
the tracks with Alstom.

The Buenos Aires-Rosario-Cordoba line constitutes the
largest very high speed rail project since the KTX project in
Korea. It represents an essential component in the economic
development of Argentina
", underlines Philippe Mellier,
President of Alstom Transport.

This order confirms Alstom’s leadership in very high
speed. Since the launch of the first TGVTM in 1981, Alstom has
gained unrivalled experience: 70% of the trains in service in
the world which travel at more than 300 kph have been built by
Alstom. They have covered over 2.8 billion kilometres (6,500
times the distance between the earth and the moon), carried 1.6
billion passengers and achieved two world rail speed records -
515.3 kph in 1990 and 574.8 kph in 2007.
