  • EMOVA and Trenes Argentinos entrust their maintenance services to the company
     

    27 January 2022 - Alstom, a global leader in smart and sustainable mobility, has been awarded three new contracts that will contribute to the improvement of Argentina’s transit infrastructure  – track, signal systems, bridges, tunnels, vehicles and stations – which will help ensure safe, dependable and accessible services. Signed at the end of 2021, these maintenance contracts will allow for greater system availability and safe and reliable transit operations for customers.

    One of the agreements is with EMOVA, the new operator and maintainer of the Buenos Aires metro network, for the overhaul of 15 Metropolis 100 series metro cars originally manufactured by Alstom in Brazil. The overhaul of these cars will help ensure not only dependable service for 15 more years but also provide new LED lighting and a more comfortable and enjoyable passenger experience, following the updating of the interiors (paint, upholstery) and equipping the cars with air conditioning. Once refurbished, these cars will serve the E line of the city of Buenos Aires’ metro network.

"We are pleased to have been entrusted by EMOVA and Trenes Argentinos and partner with them to optimise passenger rail infrastructure in Argentina. For almost 30 years, Alstom has been committed to the development of safe and quality transport and mobility in the country."

The other two contracts are with Trenes Argentinos for the general overhaul of 40 wide-gauge bogies and 16 narrow-gauge bogies, including wheel replacement, which will extend the useful life of the bogies for 10 additional years. This will guarantee the quality and safety of the trains and a smoother ride for passengers.

"We are pleased to have been entrusted by EMOVA and Trenes Argentinos and partner with them to optimise passenger rail infrastructure in Argentina," said Ernesto Garberoglio, CEO of Alstom Argentina. He added, "For almost 30 years, Alstom has been committed to the development of safe and quality transport and mobility in the country."

Since 1993, Alstom has supplied signalling systems for the subway of Buenos Aires and the Belgrano Norte line of the suburban rail network, as well as maintenance and modernisation of the subway and suburban rail lines. Alstom has also been involved in the maintenance and modernisation of locomotives and cars for both cargo and passenger services.
