Transportation specialist Alstom has been awarded an €87m (US$105m) contract by the Houston Airport System in Houston, Texas, to provide 10 years of operations and maintenance services for the Innovia Skyway automated people mover system at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
Under the agreement, Alstom will be responsible for 24-hour train operations and dispatching as well as maintenance of the Innovia vehicle fleet, guideway, signaling system, and facilities including stations and the maintenance building. This follows a previous 10-year services contract with Bombardier Transportation, which is now part of Alstom.
“Alstom is pleased to continue and build upon this long-term relationship with the Houston Airport System,” said Jérôme Wallut, president, Alstom Americas. “We’re proud that our industry-leading Innovia automated people mover system has been moving travelers and employees between terminals at George Bush Intercontinental Airport safely, efficiently and reliably since 1999. Our experienced service delivery team will continue to focus on maintaining the system’s high performance levels and supporting the airport in meeting its mobility solutions requirements.”
