Attiko Metro, the owner of the Athens metro infrastructure, has signed with a consortium of French, Greek and Italian companies, Alstom Transport S.A, J&P Avax S.A. and Ghella S.p.A, a contract to supply the extension of Line 3 of the Athens metro to the Port of Piraeus.

Valued at 344 million, the contract is funded by the European Union and the Greek government. The project concerns a 7.6 km extension of Line 3 of the Athens metro, including six new stations, and is expected to be completed by 2017. Further to its completion, the major Greek port of Piraeus will be connected to Eleftherios Venizelos international airport. The line is set to serve 135,000 passengers a day and reduce travelling time by 60 minutes.

Alstom, whose share of the contract is worth around 32 million, will undertake responsibility for the design and installation of the traction power, including third rail, the medium voltage supply and the distribution of low voltage.

This contract confirms Alstoms infrastructure expertise, having helped build the first Athens metro. This project will provide passengers and tourists travelling from the airport to the Port of Piraeus with a more convenient transportation service, declared Stavros Vlachos, Managing Director of Alstom Transport Greece.

Alstom has been present in Greece since 1991 and is a key player in the local market, having participated in the construction of key railway projects, such as Lines 2 & 3 of the Athens metro, the Athens suburban turnkey project, signaling, and a large number of electrification projects. It also successfully supplied the ERTMS safety system for the Athens suburban railway, which is compatible with all European railway networks. The company employs more than 100 people, in their majority Greek engineers and technicians who will form the project team, thereby providing important local expertise in electrification, signaling, safety and railway telecommunications.
