Alstom delivers the first metro trainset to Guadalajara in Mexico

Published on : Saturday, January 28, 2017

AlstomLine 3 – which will be operated by the Sistema de Tren Eléctrico Urbano (SITEUR) – is around 21 km in length and crosses Zapopan, Guadalajara and Tlaquepaque. Around 230,000 passengers are expected every day. “We are pleased to hand over and as per schedule the first Metropolis trainset to SCT. This project will undoubtedly benefit the metropolitan area of Guadalajara and its residents who will be commuting aboard a reliable, comfortable and environmentally-friendly mean of transport” declared Rodelmar Ocampo, Manager Director for Alstom Mexico.

 

The Metropolis for Guadalajara is composed of three cars and equipped with air conditioning. The metro sets the highest environmental standards. Its energy is reduced thanks to the train’s light weight, optimization of traction performance and energy recovery. It reaches a maximum speed of 90km/h and includes a communication and information system for passengers. Metropolis trainsets are produced in Alstom’s factory of Santa Perpetua in Barcelona, Spain.

 

Alstom’s Metropolis is a world leading, proven, safe and reliable metro train that serves many of the great global cities including Panama, Singapore, Sao Paulo, Shanghai and Amsterdam. More than 5,000 Metropolis cars have been sold worldwide.

 

In December 2014, SCT awarded Alstom a contract to provide and integrate an entire metro system. In addition to the 18 Metropolis trains, Alstom is supplying communication systems, high-voltage and traction substations, and traffic control systems based on Urbalis 400, Alstom’s CBTC [2] system. Widely proven and constantly upgraded, Urbalis represents the ideal CBTC solution for urban transit operators aiming to maximise performance and capacity and who require traditional interlocking systems for operational needs.
