Alstom has been awarded two 25-year contracts for the maintenance of the new Trambaix and TrambesÃ²s tramways in Barcelona.
Under these contracts Alstom will maintain the rolling stock and infrastructure of both tramway networks, for a total of approximately 179 million Euros. Comsa, a Spanish construction company, will maintain the platforms.
Operating both tramway networks is a private group headed by Detren, a Spanish company jointly owned by FCC (Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas) and Connex.
Alstom, as the technical leader of the construction consortium building the Trambaix and the TrambesÃ²s networks, is supplying the rolling stock – a total of 37 trams from its CITADIS family – as well as much of the infrastructure equipment for both tramways.
ALSTOM is also supplying 250 metro cars from its Metropolis range for Barcelona’s new automatic metro line, which is currently under construction.
