This is the company’s first rail contract in Denmark, as it seeks to expand its presence in northern Europe.

In Odense COMSA will manage the construction and rollout of more than 14km of double track tramway between the Tarup Centre and Hjallese districts, in conjunction with the implementation of the 26 stations that make up the line. The contract is valued at €158 million and also includes the installation of the catenary, signalling work, telecommunications, and a control and maintenance centre, as well as testing prior to the launch of service.

The award of this contract is thanks to the company’s experience in the development of light rail transport systems in both national and international markets. Projects in its portfolio include the construction of Line 1 of Bursa and Line 3 of Gaziantep, both in Turkey, Lines A, B, and C in Dublin (Ireland), the west Madrid light railway, and the tram networks of Barcelona, Murcia and Malaga, as well as track upgrades in the cities of Porto (Portugal), Turin (Italy), and Adelaide and Melbourne (Australia).
