Elecnor Deimos will participate in the renovation of RENFE’s passenger information systems equipment
The tender for two lots for the supply, installation and maintenance of passenger information systems equipment in stations has been awarded to the Deimos-Inetum joint venture.
Madrid, 1 December 2021 – The Deimos-Inetum joint venture has been awarded RENFE ‘s ITT for the supply, installation and maintenance of passenger information systems equipment in its train stations. The tender was organised in two lots, one for the Madrid Cercanías hub and the other for the remaining Cercanías and Renfe Ancho Métrico hubs.
The framework contract, signed in October in Madrid, includes the communication systems in the stations for passenger interaction with the Management Centre, and the Automatic Information System, which includes visual information panels in all stations by means of remote indicators and monitors, integrated with the existing information system in the corresponding nucleus. The contract also includes the installation or improvement of local public address equipment in the stations, integrating this equipment with the global information system.
In order to achieve the desired goal with the best possible results, the joint venture has selected top brand manufacturers for all the equipment to be supplied.
The success of this project is guaranteed by the extensive experience of the consortium partners in the execution of similar projects for RENFE Viajeros and also for other clients in the railway industry. Elecnor Deimos in particular has developed and installed passenger information systems for major Spanish railway customers such as RENFE, ADIF and FGC.
‘This contract consolidates our position as one of the leading suppliers of passenger information systems in Europe and is a key milestone in the development of our international transport business,’ says Miguel Lizondo, Systems and Technology Director at Deimos. ‘The collaboration with Inetum, a benchmark in information systems, is key to the success of this work and we hope that this collaboration will be the first of many at this level.’
The contract amounts to 12 M€ for 5 years, during which RENFE Viajeros will manage the system needs by stations or groups of stations, depending on their size or equipment needs.
