Alstom conducts initial dynamic tests for Riyadh Metro

Saudi Arabia, 10 June 2018:   Alstom has, for the past few weeks, been conducting initial dynamic tests for the Riyadh Metro Project at the FAST consortium Line 4 Depot Test Track in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Riyadh Metro Project, owned by Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA), consists of 6 lines totalling 176 km and 85 metro stations. 
 
The test campaign includes the demonstration of the performance of the railway system, from power supply to signalling systems, using the trains which have already been delivered. 
 
Alstom, as part of FAST consortium is supplying a fully integrated metro system for lines 4, 5 and 6, which includes: 69 Metropolis-based Riyadh Metro trains, Urbalis signalling system, Hesop energy recovery station as well as tracks. The Metropolis-based train for Riyadh is composed of two cars per set and is 36 metres long. Each train features three classes: first class, family class and singles class. The trains will offer passengers a high level of comfort, ergonomic seating, LED lighting, air conditioning and passenger information system.  
 
“This test run is a significant milestone for Alstom and for the project. We are proud to conduct the tests in Riy adh in order to deliver a state - of - the - art metro to our customer Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) and the inhabitant s and the visitors of Riyadh“ , said Didier Pfleger, Senior Vice President for Middle East and Africa.  
 
The trains are driverless. The train movements are protected by a state of the art signalling system controlling the speed of the trains, ensuring smooth and safe operations including automatic opening of the train doors. The fully air-conditioned stations are equipped with platform screen doors also preventing people to access the track. The trains are also equipped with an advanced passenger information system delivering real time information to the passengers through screens and loudspeakers on board the train and on the station platforms.
