Alstom delivers the last of the 15 Metropolis trains to Empresa de Trens Urbanos de Porto Alegre (Trensurb), following a contract signed in 2012. After it enters into commercial operation, the train will contribute to urban mobility improvements in the city of Porto Alegre, in the south of Brazil.

Manufactured at Alstom Transport plant in Lapa, São Paulo, this new train will be able to carry around a thousand passengers. It has a modern design, high performance air-conditioning with automatic temperature control and a system of alternating current traction that allows recovering energy while braking. The train will also be equipped with information and communication systems that include CCTV with data recorder, offering greater security to the passengers.

The trains are part of Alstom Metropolis range. They are made in stainless steel and feature four large automatic doors per car and wide corridors that ensure greater fluidity and accessibility for passengers, especially those with reduced mobility.

“It is gratifying to conclude one more project on time and to be part of the mobility changes of the cities in Brazil”, says Michel Boccaccio, Senior Vice President for Alstom Transport in Latin America.

Alstom’s Metropolis is a world leading, proven, safe and reliable train that serves many of the great global cities including Panama, Singapore, Sao Paulo, Shanghai and Amsterdam with more than 10 years of operational experience. About 4500 Metropolis cars have been sold worldwide since 1998.
