Bombardier to supply double-deckers to Paris

Posted on May 11, 2009

The Alstom-Bombardier consortium has received official confirmation from the Regie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP) for a firm order of 60 trainsets as announced on April 8, 2009.

 

This order is valued at a total of approximately $1.1 billion. As a consortium member responsible for one third of the order, Bombardier's share will amount to approximately $386 million.

 

Bombardier will supply the three middle cars of the five-car trainsets, amounting to a total of 180 cars, which will be designed and assembled at Bombardier's site in Crespin in the Valenciennes area. The presentation of the first train is scheduled for December 2010.

 

In the 1990s through to 2000, the same consortium designed and built the MI2N suburban trains for the RATP. The new trains are based on these and feature added capacity, higher performance, and environmentally friendly technology.
