CONTRACT AWARD OF THE METRORREY PROJECT

The CAF-lead consortium was, 30 July, awarded the concession for Line 3 of the Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metrorrey, for the supply of 22 units and the provision of related services over the 20 year term of the concession.

 

Metrorrey, officially known as Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metrorrey, is a light train system in the city of Monterrey in the state of Nuevo León (Mexico) with the third most densely populated metropolitan area in the country, after the Valley of Mexico and Guadalajara.

 

The Metrorrey system currently consists of 2 lines with a total of 32 operational stations. Line 3 is currently under construction, spanning 7.5 km along eight stations which will connect the municipalities of Monterrey, San Nicolás and Apodaca, with a population in excess of 280,000.

 

84 vehicles are currently serving the Metrorrey system, 22 of which were supplied by CAF in a previous contract.

 

The 20 year term concession operation is pending financial closure, which is expected to be forthcoming. This contract marks CAF's consolidation on the Mexican market as one of the country's leading train suppliers, positioning them as one of the major suppliers on the entire American Continent.
