Alstom to deliver 14 new trains to Paris

Posted on November 14, 2012

The transport authority of Ile-de-France region STIF and the Paris metro operator RATP ordered 14 additional MP05 metro trains from Alstom Transport.

The new trains are intended for line 14 of the Paris metro as part of the northbound extension of the line to Mairie de Saint-Ouen station. Deliveries will begin in 2014 and end in 2015.

MP05 metro, which is part of the Alstom’s Metropolis range, provides easy access for all. Its full low floor and end-to-end wide aisles, as well as the three large automatic doors per car, make for more efficient passenger flow at stations and for easier accessibility for persons with reduced mobility.

The option for the new trains is part of the contract signed in October 2005 between RATP and Alstom, which involved an initial firm order for 49 trains.

MP05 trains are designed and manufactured in France at the Valenciennes plant. Alstom Transport’s other four facilities involved in the project in France are Tarbes for traction chains, Ornans for engines, Le Creusot for bogies, and Villeurbanne for the on-board IT system and passenger information systems. The project brings 800 direct and indirect jobs to Alstom and its French suppliers.
