SENER Engineering will conduct the technical studies for the Monterrey commuter train

17/09/2020 (Mexico)

SENER in Mexico, a subsidiary of SENER Engineering, and part of the SENER engineering and technology group, has signed a contract with FIDEPROES (Special Projects Trust; Government of Nuevo León), which was awarded a national public tender, to carry out the technical studies for the Monterrey commuter train.

The new railway system is expected to use 62 kilometers of existing tracks, and will combine passenger and cargo transport; the average speed of the passenger system will be between 40 and 50 kilometers per hour, with capacities of 170 to 200 people per car and a total of 27 stations. The demand is estimated at 250,000 passengers per day.

The Monterrey commuter train will serve the cities of Apostaca, San Nicolás de los Garza, Monterrey, San Pedro Garza García, Santa Catarina and García, spanning the most important metropolitan area of the Mexican state of Nuevo León, an area that ranks second in terms of its contribution to the country's GDP.

SENER's work in Mexico is divided into two packages: field work (geometric and topographic survey; hydrological study; identification and evaluation of preparatory work; geological and geotechnical studies of the main rail and railway crossings, as well as environmental feasibility) and the preliminary project (general description and railway engineering for passenger and freight transport).

With this contract, SENER in Mexico solidifies its position as the leading urban transport engineering company in Mexico, with references such as the Toluca-Mexico City passenger train, the recently inaugurated line 3 of the Guadalajara metro and the Maya train.

With an office in the country since 2006, staffed by a multidisciplinary team of nearly 350 Mexican professionals, SENER develops engineering and technology projects in the infrastructure fields, with references such as the Toluca-Mexico City passenger train, Guadalajara metro line 3, the Maya train, and the Monterrey suburban rail, as well as several projects in intelligent road transport systems throughout the country, for customers such as SCT, BANOBRAS and CAPUFE. Its portfolio of projects in the Energy sector is also outstanding, with the Agua Prieta II combined cycle plant, the La Cangrejera petrochemical plant, and the diesel hydrodesulphurizers at the Tula and Salamanca refineries, for PEMEX, the Empalme I combined cycle plant, and the compression stations in Frontera and Los Ramones for Gasoductos del Noreste.
