A consortium between Bombardier, Alstom and Indra has won the contract to supply signalling systems and maintenance services for the new high-speed section of the Madrid-Lisbon railway corridor in Spain’s Extremadura region. The project, awarded by Spain’s Administrator of Railway Infrastructure (ADIF) has a total value of approximately 164 million euro ($185 million US). Bombardier’s share is valued at approximately 77 million euro ($86 million US); Alstom’s share is valued at approximately 62 million euro ($70 million US), and Indra’s share is approximately 25 million euro ($28 million US)1.
The Bombardier-led consortium will deliver the design, procurement, installation, testing and commissioning of the signalling and communication systems.
