Domestic suppliers sought in Argentina


24 January 2013



ARGENTINA: On January 16 Industry Minister Débora Giorgi and Transport Secretary Alejandro Ramos announced an initiative aiming to increase the participation of domestic suppliers in the government's rail investment programme.

Three working groups are being set up for track materials (including electrification equipment), rolling stock and signalling equipment to identify potential suppliers.

With an initial focus on the Mitre and Sarmiento commuter networks in Buenos Aires, the programme should see some 6 900 km of the national network renewed, including the main lines from Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata (400 km) and Rosario (300 km) as well as 5 400 km of freight routes.

'We are going to put our railway back on its feet', said Giorgi, who added that the aim was to replace imported goods with 'the latest technology'.

I'll post here my favourite train in Argentina. Built entirely in Argentina by Argentine Company MATERFER, this train goes from the city of Paraná, ccapital of the Entre Ríos Province, to the city of Concepción del Uruguay. A 300 km trip.

I guess that as soon as they finish with their testing on tracks. Services to Rosario and Mar del Plata have a great demand.
I like how they are renewing our trains, even if they are mostly Buenos Aires'.

But are the lines to Rosario actually good enough to support a service in decent time? I knew one problem in South America is the fact that tracks have been neglected for a long time.

The projects are to renew trains and tracks, and as trains, tracks are already being renewed.

True.

Why? Voters get more impressed by rolling stock than tracks. With a new livery you can cheat them on believing the coaches are brand new.

I don't think so, people are not that stupid. Anyone can easily say if a train is old or not, no matter how freshly painted it is.

Looks good. Some nice investment in Argentina, though I believe the focus needs to be on the tracks more than the trains...

The train does look like a CAF/Alstom civia, doesn't it? Pure coincidence?

Anyway, I agree with Robi-damian they should rather focus on tracks and signalling in Argentina.

They're also focusing on renewing tracks and signaling.
