Finmeccanica wins a USD 1.2 billion contract for Lima Metro
ProInversion, Peru’s State-owned company acting on behalf of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications, has awarded Finmeccanica a 35-year licensing contract for the Lima Metro Line 2 and a section of the Metro Line 4. The licensing contract sets out a 5-year term for the design, construction and financing of the project and a subsequent 30-year operating and maintenance phase. The project for the Lima Metro Lines 2 and 4 comprises 35 stations, 35 km of tunnels, 2 depots and 42 trains.
The part of the contract awarded to Ansaldo STS amounts to approximately USD 700 million (510 million euros) and the part concerning AnsaldoBreda totals ca USD 500 million (364 million euros).
Ansaldo STS will be in charge of designing the project and supplying, installing, commissioning and integrating the different electromechanical operating systems (for signalling, power supply, telecommunications, platform screen doors, equipment depots, control centres, automatic ticketing and the SCADA system).
Ansaldo STS will also participate in the two metro lines’ 30-year operating and maintenance phase. The solution developed by Ansaldo STS for Lima includes the use of CBTC signalling technology, the most technologically advanced system in the Mass Transit sector providing Unattended Train Operation (UTO).
AnsaldoBreda will be in charge of supplying 42 108-metre long modern metro trains, featuring high levels of security and comfort, that are wholly air-conditioned and fitted with a last-generation public address system and on-board security cameras.
The project will include high performance and highly reliable components and systems with a view to maximising the complete automation of unmanned trains by using technology widely tested on AnsaldoBreda trains already operating on several automated metro lines (in Copenhagen, Milan, Brescia, Rome and Riyadh).
The licensing contract was awarded by Prolnversion to the "Nuevo Metro de Lima" Consortium which comprises, in addition to the Finmeccanica-owned companies, Iridium Concesiones de Infrastructura SA, Vialia Sociedad Gestora de Concesiones de Infrastrutructura SL, Salini-Impregilo SpA and Cosapi SA.
