Pfaff Verkehrstechnik Has Successfully Completed a Major Contract for the New Metro Lima Depot in Peru

This article first appeared in the Railway-News magazine Issue 2 2022.

Greater efficiency and shorter vehicle dwell time in the depot: Pfaff Verkehrstechnik, a member of CMCO Columbus McKinnon Corporation, has been commissioned by Hitachi STS, an Italian general contractor in the railway and local rail transport sector, to supply the plant components for workshop equipment for the new Santa Anita depot of Metro Lima in Peru.

The entire equipment, which Pfaff Verkehrstechnik has provided and now installed together with SIM IMPEX, includes an underfloor lifting system as well as bogie lifting stands, axle lifting systems (underfloor), mobile lifting jacks, manual turntables, lifting and turning equipment for bogie frames, auxiliary bogies and transport devices in large quantities. The installation is now complete, and the plant will start operating this year.

Efficiently Maintain Long Trains with High Capacity

Metro Lima is the only urban means of transport in Peru that does not contribute to air pollution because it uses electrical energy from hydroelectric power stations. With the opening of the northern section of line 1 in 2014, the metro, which is predominantly an elevated line, reaches a length of 34.6km with 26 stations. There are plans to expand the rail network to up to five lines, the second line is currently under construction.

Currently, six-carriage MB-300 trains from the Italian rolling stock vehicle manufacturer AnsaldoBreda are in service, as well as several Metropolis multiple units from the French manufacturer Alstom. It is a fast metro with high capacity: the trains are 107m long, which has to be taken into account in the plant engineering at the new Santa Anita depot.

The new underfloor lifting system from Pfaff Verkehrstechnik is designed for heavy trains of up to 280 tonnes with up to seven carriages and a total length of 120m.
