Alstom, Electra and Dan Transportation have secured contract from the Metropolitan Mass Transit System (NTA) in Israel for a light rail project.
Under the 2.6 billion-euro project contract, the companies will design, build, maintain and finance the Tel Aviv Metropolitan LRT Green Line project.
The share of Alstom, a member of the Metropolitan Tramway (TMT Consortium), in the contract is worth 858 million euros.
Alstom’s scope of work includes the design, engineering, supply, integration, testing and commissioning of the railway system.
This includes tracks, electrification, signaling and communication system, power supply (Hesop, energy saving system), and delivery of 98 Citadis XO5 trams.
Electra will be involved in the design and construction of the construction works, while the joint venture of Dan Transportation, Electra and Alstom will carry out system maintenance activities.
The Green Line project will have a length of over 39 km and 62 stations, including four underground stations.
This line, which will operate from north to south of the city, will connect Holon and Rishon Lecion with the center of Tel Aviv, the University of Tel Aviv, the industrial and business zone in West Herzliya, and the business zone in Kiryat Atidim.
It is expected to serve 76 million passengers in 2030.
Alstom will design and manufacture Citadis Xo5 trams at its Citadis tram development center in La Rochelle.
Alstom Israel Managing Director Eran Cohen said: We believe that access to transport is a key factor in promoting and improving social and economic progress.
“Everyone benefits from better access to public transport, reduced travel time, less congestion and lower carbon emissions.”
Earlier this month, Alstom won a 2.5 billion-euro contract with the Baden-Württemberg Landesanstalt Schienenfahrzeuge (SFBW) for the supply of Coradia Stream High Capacity (HC) electric double-decker trains.
