Feve collaboration agreements in Peru

(14/09/2012)  Feve, which is already working on the development of tourist trains for the Machu Picchu line in Peru, has signed a collaboration agreement that covers strategic development, operational management, personnel training and technical assistance, all of which is aimed at optimizing train service in the area.

The agreement also includes a study for a new line next to the old Northern Pan-American Highway, with port connections to its northern end in Paita (where there is a port with capacity and potential for intermodal operation), as well as to the south in Chiclayo and Puerto Eten, with promising future prospects and linked to the intermodal corridor.
The new railway would connect the ports with the inland area in Alto Piura, with locations such as Olmos and Chulucanas.

Mine railways

Feve has also signed a cooperation agreement with Peru's Ministry of Energy & Mines to study the possibility of developing mine-energy transport systems in the country. Feve will be the technical assistant for a feasibility study under which direct or indirect studies proposed by the Peruvian Government, the mine companies or any other administration could be included.

The collaboration agreement covers strategic development, operational management, personnel training and technical assistance, all of which is aimed at optimizing train service in Peru.
