Both contracts are worth a total of around €190 million [3]. Line 3 of Cairo metro is scheduled to be fully completed in early 2022.

Cairo’s metro carries 3 million passengers per day and this number should reach 5 million by 2020. The 78-kilometer-long metro network includes two complete lines, with a third partially open due to construction in different phases [4]. This line, in the next phase of construction, will see an extra 17.7 km and 15 stations added. Once extended, line 3 will be able to carry over 1.5 million passengers per day.

Alstom will provide its signalling solution Urbalis including Iconis at the operating control centre as well as point machines and station signalling equipment. The solution will enable safe, fluid and comfortable journeys to commuters and a short headway between trains.

The company will also provide electromechanical equipment including power substations to feed the third rail, ventilation system and elevators/escalators. This equipment will provide high safety and comfort to passengers.

“We are pleased that NAT has entrusted Alstom with these new contracts. These new projects will undoubtedly strengthen our partnership with NAT that started more than 30 years ago. We are committed to accompany our customer in the further development of Cairo’s metro network to meet the growing demand for mobility” said Gian-Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice-President of Alstom for Middle East and Africa.

Alstom (alstom.com) has provided Metropolis trains as well as infrastructure, signalling and services solutions for lines 1 and 2 of Cairo Metro and has been awarded phases 1, 2 and 4a of line 3. Alstom has also been awarded a contract to modernise the signalling systems on the regional railway line from Beni Suef to Asyut.

[1] in consortium with Thales, Alstom being leader of the consortium
[2] in consortium with Colas Rail, Orascom and ARABCO
[3] Signalling contract: €85M; Infrastructure contract: €102M. To be booked in Q4 of fiscal year 2015/16
[4] Phases: 1, 2 3, 4 a-b-c. Phases 4b and c have not yet been awarded.
