Alstom, a French rolling stock manufacturer, has completed infrastructure works for six stations on the Haidari-Piraeus extension of Line 3 of Greece’s Athens metro network. As a member of the Avax-Ghella-Alstom consortium, the company has already delivered the first three commercial stations. They will be operational in July 2020.

Alstom is involved in the project’s traction power design, supply, and installation, which includes the third rail, medium voltage supply, and low voltage distribution. The project also included updating the software in the 76 existing technical rooms on Lines 2 and 3.
