Concluding Panamá Metro Contracts

Panamá Metro

In order to implement the extension works and infrastructure maintenance, two contracts have been granted to the TCP Rail joint venture of TSO and CIM by Metro de Panamá.

Design, supply, and installation of track and rigid catenary for a 2·2 km elevated extension of Line 1 north from San Isidro to a multimodal bus, taxi, and park-and-ride interchange at Villa Zaíta, are the contents of this US$13·9m contract. May 2023 is the determined date for completion and it is ready for testing to begin. The extension is expected to carry 10 000 passengers/h.

A contract with the US $6·9m value for renewal covers three years of maintenance of overhead electrification, track, and workshop equipment on the 22 km elevated Line 2 and its 5·7 km of depot tracks.

At the moment TSO and CIM are finalizing work on the extension of Line 2 to ITSE and Tocumen International Airport.

According to Gilles Philibert, TSO International Director, and TCP Rail CEO: “Our teams have already successfully delivered the equipment for lines 1 and 2 and will use their experience and know-how for this new project.”

“TSO has been involved in the construction and maintenance of the Panama Metro since 2011. This new project illustrates our desire to position ourselves as a major player in the 2040 Master Plan launched by Metro de Panamá, which includes the construction of eight new lines,” said Orso Vesperini, Managing Director, International & Major Projects at TSO’s parent company NGE Group.
