Orovide Urbalis 200 signaling system
Alstom has signed two contracts with Egypt’s National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) to supply the signaling system and the infrastructure of the phase 4A of Cairo metro line 3, at present under construction. Alstom’s segments 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. 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 signaling system as well as points machines and station signalling equipment. The company will also deliver 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.
