Bombardier, Alstom to supply Paris commuter cars

Posted on April 9, 2009

RATP entered into a contract with the Alstom-Bombardier consortium for the supply of 60 MI09 trainsets for the greater Paris suburb.

Pursuant to the contract to be signed, Bombardier will supply the three middle cars of the five-car sets, which will be designed and assembled at Bombardier's site in Crespin, France.

In the 1990s through to 2000, the same consortium designed and built the MI2N suburban trains, on which this new train is based, with added capacity, higher performance, environmentally friendly technology, and updated to meet current norms and regulations.

The presentation of the first train is scheduled for December 2010.
