New contract signed between Efacec and Ireland amounts to over €25 million

Efacec has just signed a contract covering the supply of all electromechanical systems for the new line of Dublin Light Rail – the LUAS Cross City -, whose inauguration is expected to take place at the end of 2017. This new line represents one the most important developments in public transportation in Ireland’s capital by allowing to link, through the city center, the two lines that the metro currently has.

With this newly signed contract, amounting to over €25 million, Efacec-made technologies will be installed throughout 6km of track, spanning 13 new stations.

Among the systems that will be developed, supplied and installed by Efacec, stand out the following:

  • Energy: substations, remote power control (SCADA) and electrical installations;
  • Signaling: fleet management system (FMS) and railway signaling;
  • Information Systems: communication, public information, digital transmission via optical fiber and radio;
  • Security: video surveillance, fire detection and access control;
  • Command Center of the entire Metro network, including monitoring of a new vehicle parking.

Due to its size and scope, this new contract is clear evidence of Efacec’s expertise in the Transportation activity, already confirmed by previous contracts signed with this same customer, but also with other projects and in other geographies, such as the Metros of Nottingham (United Kingdom), Bergen (Norway) or Cádiz (Spain).
