Sener appointed as ICE on $5.1bn Montreal REM metro transport system

The Montreal REM is a 67km integrated fully automated metro system, and will be served by 26 stations

An Independent Checker Engineer (ICE) has been appointed on the new $5.1bn Montreal REM (Réseau Express Metropolitan) metro transport system. Engineering and technology group Sener has been appointed to the role and will conduct independent checking on the contractor’s design to verify compliance with the technical requirements of design, construction, and operation defined in the contract.

Sener will also verify compliance with the local applicable regulations, and produces certificates and a report of conformity.

The Montreal REM is a 67km integrated fully automated metro system, 18.2Km of which is elevated. It will be served by 26 stations (five underground, eight in viaduct and 13 on surface) connecting downtown Montréal, the South Shore, the West Island, the North Shore and Montréal–Trudeau airport. Currently under construction, REM is the largest public transport project in Québec in fifty years.

“It is a real pleasure to be part of these challenges faced by the country in the modernisation and improvement of transportation infrastructure, and to see the extraordinary results. That means faster commute, less time in traffic and more money in people’s pockets as they trade their cars for a subway ticket,” said Ángel Ares, Senior VP of Sener in Canada.

The first segment of the transport link between Brossard and Gare Centrale stations opened recently, on 31 July. This 17km section is served by five stations that will provide access from Brossard to downtown Montréal in under 18 minutes. Construction only started in 2018.

CDPQ Infra (Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec) is responsible for the planning, financing, completion of the Montreal REM, and continues to build the rest of the project, supported by the Québec government and the Canadian government.
