PANAMA METRO – EXTENSION OF LINE 1

TSO AND CIM AWARDED A CONTRACT TO SUPPLY AND INSTALL TRACK AND CATENARY EQUIPMENT.

PANAMA METRO – EXTENSION OF LINE 1

TCP RAIL INC., a company owned by TSO, subsidiary of NGE, and its partner CIM, was awarded by Metro de Panamá S.A. the contract to supply and install track and rigid catenary equipment for the northern extension of line 1 of the metro. The company was also awarded a new contract for the maintenance of line 2 (catenaries, track and workshop equipment) for a duration of three years.

The construction of the northern extension of line 1 awarded to TSO includes the design, supply and laying of the track and the rigid catenary. This 2.2 km viaduct section will connect San Isidro station, current terminus, to the future terminus of the line in Villa Zaíta.

This extension will transport up to 10,000 passengers per hour and will have a multimodal bus and taxi platform at its terminus, as well as a park-and-ride facility with a capacity of 800 vehicles. Its construction is also included in this project. The 300 employees mobilised at the peak of activity will have to lay the tracks and catenary in five months: a real challenge in terms of logistics and planning.

The TSO – CIM teams are currently finalising work on the extension of line 2, which includes two passenger stations, ITSE and Airport, which will benefit thousands of residents and tourists visiting Tocumen International Airport each year.

« This new project is a recognition of the expertise and quality of the TSO-CIM partnership in railway infrastructure in Panama. Our teams have already successfully delivered the equipment for lines 1 and 2 and will use their experience and know-how for this new project. » Gilles Philibert, TSO International Director and TCP Rail Inc. CEO.

« TSO has been involved in the construction and maintenance of the Panama Metro since 2011. This new project illustrates our desire to position ourselves as a major player in the 2040 Master Plan launched by Metro de Panamá, S.A. which includes the construction of eight new lines. This new success confirms the NGE Group's ability to develop internationally in the field of sustainable mobility infrastructures, while supporting the local economy. »,
Orso Vesperini, NGE Managing Director – International and Major Projects.

« With this success, CIM has once again demonstrated its international railway know-how. We are delighted to contribute to the construction and maintenance of the Panama Metro. This success reinforces our links with our partners, strengthens our presence in the region and consolidates our exceptional relationship with Metro de Panamá S.A. » Thomas Fournier, CIM CEO.
