    Suburban Railway powered by wind energy


    December 8, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras

     

      The Suburban Train announced that in one year it uses close to 31 million kilowatt hours of wind energy for the operation of the system and the circulation of the convoys.

      This has made it possible to supply 80 percent of the entire operation of the mass transit system, explained Max Noria, director of Commercialization and Risk Management of Ferrocarriles Suburbanos.

      "Since 2018 we contracted with a wind energy company to supply the operation of the system and, currently, 80 percent of the energy used in the system to operate it comes from this energy source.

      "Sometimes they say: 'I use electric energy and it is already clean energy' and this is not necessarily true, a lot of electric energy is obtained from fuel oil, coal, which, at the end of the day, the result is clean energy, but to obtain it there are a series of elements that pollute", said Noria in an interview.

      He explained that this energy is purchased from an external company.

      He also assured that they clean the trains of the Suburbano, which connects Buenavista, in the CDMX, with Cuautitlán, in the State of Mexico, by means of water treated in two plants.

      On the other hand, in view of the neighborhood rejection in the Municipality of Tultepec for the construction of pedestrian and vehicular bridges to extend the Suburban Train to the International Airport Felipe Ángeles (AIFA), Noria pointed out that agreements have already been reached.

      Some of the citizens' concerns are the lack of communication that the Suburban Train will bring them, lack of connections with other towns or that the inhabitants will lose their homes.

      "At the moment, what we are doing is building where we have sections of track released, in meetings that we hold on a weekly basis (...) with the authority, is that agreements have already been reached with all these communities that had disinformation to be able to develop the project.

      "They tell us that they have already reached agreements, in the words of the Secretariat (SCT) and, shortly, they will be releasing those lands that still had some occupation", he pointed out.

      He explained that the expansion project has an average duration of 24 months, which is why they expect the completion date to be by the end of 2023.

      The official added that the current capacity of the Suburban Train on a working day is approximately 155 thousand users.
