Alstom, the global leader in smart and sustainable mobility, has been awarded a contract for the maintenance of five trainsets made up of five cars each by EMOVA company, concessionaire of the Buenos Aires Subway Network.

Maintenance work will begin immediately for a period of approximately 19 months. Alstom will perform the services in its workshop in Los Hornos, Province of Buenos Aires. The maintenance of the trainsets, originally built by CNR, includes bogie overhauls, the brake system, couplers, and pantographs.

Modernisation of these important train subsystems will help improve their performance and extend their useful life by 10 years. Thanks to this agreement with Alstom, passengers on the Buenos Aires Subway Network will obtain a better travel experience, in renovated cars that are more available, reliable and safer. Once maintenance is complete, the five CNR trainsets will be assigned to Buenos Aires Subway lines A and C.

"This contract with EMOVA is very important for us, it is proof of our customer’s trust in our services expertise and know-how to maintain part of its rail fleet in Buenos Aires," stated Ernesto Garberoglio, Country Managing Director at Alstom Argentina. He added: "As a global leader in rolling stock maintenance, Alstom will optimise the total cost of ownership of these trainsets and railway infrastructure in Argentina to benefit EMOVA and its customers."

Joaquín Acuña, President of the Buenos Aires Subway concessionaire said: "Since December 1, 2021, at Emova we have assumed the commitment to focus on the user." He also expressed: "As we did in the first stage with the Alstom trains that we incorporated to Line E, we will now renew our commercial relationship to carry out this work in the CNR fleet, which will undoubtedly result in an improvement in the quality of the service."
