SENER has been involved throughout the entire implementation of the Porto Light Rail. 

SENER, as leader company of the European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) ENSITRANS, has carried out for Metro do Porto, S.A., the management of the technical assistance during the entire network implementation. From preliminary
and feasibility studies (1994) to the election of the system, including preliminary design and tender document elaboration, contractors proposal valuation and later negotiation with prequalifi ed companies, follow up and revision of detailed
design, project management in tunnels construction, and fi nally during testing and commissioning, advising Metro do Porto in the process of certifying the system, services that have been carried out until the year 2012.

Addictionally, SENER has also participated (2006 to 2010) in the Operation & Maintenance Supervision of the entire network operated by the consortium Normetro, which is incorporated by French operator Transdev. Currently, SENER is still working for Metro de Oporto, through its branch in Lisbon, providing Technical Assistance for the contruction of Stage 2.

The entire network which is currently under exploitation comprises 6 lines with a total lenght of 67 km and 71 stations (14 underground). The network covers seven of the nine municipalities in the Metropolitan Area of Porto, second largest city in Portugal and connected to the International Airport of Pedras Rubras.

The System has been designed so that its implementation constitutes an urban regeneration and improvement factor: Recognizing the quality of the project, in June 2008, UITP awarded this system with the Light Rail Award/2008 - Best New System, which honors creativity and design of the light rail systems around the world.

  • Construction start date: 1998.
  • Line 1 Opening: December 2002.
  • Line 6 Opening: January 2011.

Recently in 2018, SENER has been awarded the contract for the extension of Porto Metro Network. SENER will perform the detailed design of the new line (Circular Line) in the section between Boavista/Casa da Música and Praça da Liberdade. It will be an underground section of 2,8 km and 4 stations. The station located at Praça da Liberdade will be a significant challenge as it is located very close to the UNESCO heritage site being the historical city centre.
