Egis, with its partner CyD Ingéneria, wins a brand new contract in Chile! After having worked on lines 2, 3 and 6 of the Santiago metro, the Egis teams will be mobilized as project management assistant for the System on the project of the new line 7 of the Santiago metro.
Santiago metro network expansion
This new line 7, 100% automatic, will extend over 26 km and will consist of 19 stations, a real opportunity to improve the mobility of the 1.35 million inhabitants of the Chilean capital. Line 7 is the first project of a new cycle of expansion of the Santiago Metro since 3 new lines and 3 extensions are planned for the next few years. This global project will allow a reduction in the use of individual cars for the benefit of public transport and will promote intermodality by cycle for a better connection between the different districts, all of which will then reduce CO2 emissions within the capital.
Our System expertise for the Santiago Metro
Egis will be in charge of the project management assistance on systems including the review of the companies' execution studies as well as assistance and control during the manufacturing and assembly phase. The teams will also work on testing and commissioning phases to ensure the proper integration of each system. In addition, Egis' skills will be essential to optimize planning in order to affect current operations as little as possible.
Among the many systems concerned, we can for example cite the tracks and catenaries, the CBTC automatic piloting systems, the platform screen doors or even the communication systems. Thanks to its 50 years of experience on metro projects, Egis will be able to put all the System skills of its experts at the service of this great project.
This new contract reinforces our positioning and our presence in Chile.
