The Electric Train Consortium, made up by the Brazilian company Odebrecht (67%) and Peruvian Graña y Montero (33%), has recently chosen TELTRONIC to supply the radio communications system for Phase 2, which extends the route of Lima Metro Line 1 from the Centre of Lima (Grau Avenue) to San Juan de Lurigancho, Peru’s most populous neighbourhood in the East of the city.
The Electric Train is a large-scale project promoted by the Peruvian government to improve the flow of traffic in this capital city of over 10 million inhabitants. The Electric Train, which is due to start commercial operations now during early 2012, completes Line 1 of the old Lima Metro, connecting in its first phase of 16 stations and 22 kilometres of track, Villa El Salvador in the south of the city with Central Lima. Now, in its second phase, made up of an extra 10 stations and 12 kilometres of track, it will reach as far as San Juan de Lurigancho, a huge neighbourhood located to the East of the city.
TELTRONIC has had a significant presence in Peru for several years having provided analogue and digital equipment to customers in Lima and Trujillo. TELTRONIC has entered a new stage in its business development in the country by supplying TETRA systems for the Electric Train. The first phase, already fully implemented, is made up of 5 fully redundant, 30 MDT-400 mobile units and 50 HTT-500 hand-portables for maintenance and security staff, as well as 4 dispatch units for the control centre and key stations. This new phase is made up of 3 additional sites, 20 new mobile units for the trains, 30 hand-portables and 5 fixed units. One of the main special applications is a digital recording system.
“We are pleased to take part in this project that is bringing so many benefits to the people of Lima. The modernisation of public transport in Lima can count on the most secure and up-to-date communications technology to be found anywhere in the world, “says Felipe Sanjuan, Vice-President, International Sales, TELTRONIC.
TELTRONIC is the clear leader among TETRA manufacturers in Latin America and the transport sector, bringing together both strengths in this particular case of Lima Electric Train. TELTRONIC has considerable experience of executing similar projects across Latin America and the rest of the world. The company has implemented multiple radio communications systems based on TETRA technology for mass-transit in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Chile, as well as Spain, Algeria and other European and Asian markets.
