The ACTN Consortium has been selected to carry out all civil works of the Cuenca Tram Project in Ecuador.

Comprising Alstom, Compagnie Internationale de Maintenance (CIM), and NGE Group, the consortium will construct the workshop yard, prepare the road platform, and install technological systems (SIR) for low-voltage tram system transportation.

Alstom North LAM managing director Ludovic D’Hauthuille said: “Alstom, with its partners, is dedicated to the successful completion of the Cuenca Tramway line.

“ACTN Consortium was selected based on a technical and economic report prepared by the executive unit of the Cuenca Tram Project.”

“Looking further ahead, Alstom expects to expand its operations to provide the same high-quality and efficient solutions to the rest of the country, in order to benefit the Ecuadorian population.”

The project was awarded by the Autonomous Municipal Decentralized Government of Cuenca under the guidelines stated in the Organic Law of the National System of Public Contracting.

The authority selected ACTN Consortium based on a technical and economic report prepared by the executive unit of the Cuenca Tram Project.

CIM chairman and CEO Alain Lovambac said: “At CIM, we and our teams are very proud of this new international success, which further consolidates the expertise of our company in major railway infrastructure projects.”
