CAF Turnkey & Engineering is awarded the power and electrification maintenance contract for Granada Metropolitan Railway Network Line 1

The Public Works Agency of the Andalusia Government has awarded CAF Turnkey & Engineering (CAF T&E) the Power and Electrification Maintenance Contract for Granada Metropolitan Railway Network Line 1.

CAF T&E will maintain the power and electrical infrastructure of this Light Metro system for three years. The contract comprises the maintenance of the traction substations, power supply substations, the dual track catenary running along more than 15km and the maintenance of the low-voltage facilities at the 26 stations along the tram system.

A monitoring system will also be fitted to record line electrical measurements for detailed mapping of the railway system’s energy flows, consumption and losses. This solution will facilitate proposing specific energy efficiency measures and calculating investment returns for each proposal. This system is similar to the one CAF T&E has already rolled out on the Zaragoza tram system, which has provided satisfactory results.
