Alstom's share of the contract is valued at Euros 68m, while its partner, Coley Besix FM, has the remaining Euros 52m and will maintain the stations and depot.
Phase 1 of the project, due to open by the end of 2014, consists of a 10km line with 13 stations. The line will be the first to be electrified entirely with Alstom's APS ground-level power supply system pioneered in Bordeaux.
Alstom will supply a fleet of 11 Citadis LRVs for phase 1 with an additional 14 units to follow for phase 2 which will add another 4km and six stations to the line.
