A consortium composed by Alstom[1] and Indra has signed a contract with Spanish railway infrastructure authority Adif to supply the safety and security systems for 12 tunnels of the new Madrid-Asturias high speed line, including the 25 km-long Pajares bypass tunnel. Alstom will also maintain the systems for a period of two years. Alstom’s share of the contract is worth over 15 million euros (VAT included).

The Pajares tunnel is the second longest tunnel in Spain and will enable trains to cross the Cantabrian Mountains at high speed. The installation of the security systems will contribute to easier, faster and safer connections between Madrid and the north of Spain.

Alstom will supply the civil and security systems for the tunnels, including ventilation and firefighting systems, fire doors, emergency radio and gas detection. Alstom will also provide the power supply for the entire system and will integrate it into the customer’s remote control system SCADA[2]. Furthermore, the company will ensure predictive and corrective maintenance, as well as management, administration and control of the system. Assistance and emergency responses are also be part of the package.

“Alstom’s teams have 15 years of experience in similar projects on the Spanish rail network. Specifically, Alstom has already equipped and maintained electromechanical installations in the 32 tunnels associated with the Ourense-Santiago high-speed line, and the 4 tunnels on the Madrid-Valladolid high-speed line, including the Guadarrama tunnel, the longest in Spain,” said Carlos Ortega, Systems & Infrastructures Managing Director, Alstom Spain.
