Alstom’s shares in these contracts are worth around €80 million.

Cairo’s metro carries 3 million passengers per day and this number should reach 5 million by 2020. Its network includes two fully operational lines and a third line, partially opened, whose construction is being carried out in different phases[3]. Phase 4A of line 3, which covers 5.7 km and comprises 5 stations, will be completed in early 2018.

For the phase 4A of Cairo metro line 3, Alstom will provide its Urbalis 200 signalling system as well as points machines and station signalling equipment. The company will also provide electromechanical equipment including power supply to feed the third rail, ventilation system and elevators/escalators. With this extension, the line will carry over 750,000 passengers per day in total safety.

“We are pleased that NAT has entrusted Alstom with these new contracts. This is a continuing partnership that was initiated more than 30 years ago. NAT can be reassured of Alstom’s engagement to further develop Cairo’s metro network”, said Gian-Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice-President of Alstom Transport for Middle East and Africa.

A long-time partner of the Cairo metro, Alstom (alstom.com) has provided trains as well as infrastructure, signalling and services solutions for lines 1 and 2. In January 2015, Alstom has also signed a contract to modernise the signalling systems on the regional railway line from Beni Suef to Asyut.

[2] in consortium with Colas Rail, Orascom, and ARABCO
[3] Phases: 1, 2, 3, and 4 A-B-C. Phase 1, opened in 2012 - Alstom provided: signalling, telecom and electromechanical equipment.
