Alstom will provide train systems for Santiago Metro Line 2 extension


Alstom was awarded two contracts for approximately 29 million euros with Metro de Santiago for the development of the train interlocking system and the implementation of the automatic signalling and piloting system for the extension of Line 2 of the metropolitan train, which will allow connection of San Bernardo commune with the network.
Alstom will be responsible for implementing and maintaining a modern electronic interlocking technology (SML400 + MooN) in the new Line 2 depots, located in Vespucio Norte, as well as for the 5.2 km extension of the same line, which will join La Cisterna and San Bernardo. This technology will allow Metro de Santiago to control traffic safely and to track and receive the new NS16 trains, assembled by Alstom in Chile.
The second contract includes the provision and commissioning of the Sacem automatic signalling and piloting system for the same extension of Line 2. This technology will allow control of the train movements, ensuring passenger safety and optimizing traffic. It will also reduce the time interval between trains.
"We are very pleased to contribute to these challenges that will allow the extension of the Santiago Metro Line 2, providing cutting-edge technologies for systems that will guarantee high levels of safety and reliability," said Denis Girault, Managing Director of Alstom in Chile.
The activities for the installation of the interlocking system in the new Metro depots is expected to begin in February 2020, while the Sacem system will be implemented in 2021.
Alstom has been present in Chile for over 50 years, providing a wide range of solutions in the rail transport market, ranging from underground trains and cars, to maintenance services, modernization, infrastructure and signalling technologies. Alstom is present in the main railway projects in the country, such as Metro de Santiago, Metro Valparaíso and the Alameda-Nos service.
