Walloon engineering to keep Lima’s metro running smoothly

Nov 20, 2016

Walloon global railway company Alstom has signed a €200 million contract to supply new Metropolis trains in the Peruvian capital, Lima.

Alstom’s Charleroi site will be responsible for the traction elements. The order will deliver 120 carriages and 20 train sets for line 1 of the Lima
metro and 19 new carriages to complete the existing trainsets already in service on the same line.

Delivery of the 139 metropolis cars is scheduled to be completed by 2019. The metro line 1 is 34km long with 26 stations.

Passenger numbers have been rising since the line opened in 2011 and currently stand at around 320,000 per day.

“With this new order, even more passengers will be able to use a metro system that is reliable, comfortable and respectful of the environment,” said Alstom Latin America vice-president Michel Boccaccio.
