ALSTOM SA: Largest ever train procurement for Western Australia

Post by Jeff Smith » ... ralia.html
10 December 2019 – Alstom has signed a contract with the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia (PTA) to manufacture and maintain the next generation of C-series trains for Perth’s growing rail network. 

Under the contract, worth approximately €800 million (AUD1.3 billion), Alstom will be responsible for the design, supply, manufacturing, testing and commissioning of 41 x 6-car electric (EMU) and 2 x 3-car diesel (DMU) trains, which includes 50% local content, 20 years maintenance of the EMU trains and maintenance support services for the DMU trains.

The trains will be manufactured in PTA’s Bellevue assembly facility and delivered over a 7-year period commencing in 2022. The contract includes options for an additional 30 EMU trains and a further two options of 5 + 5 years of maintenance.
Next stop, Willoughby
