Alstom delivers first Reims tramset

Posted on March 31, 2010

[IMAGE]Alstom.jpg[/IMAGE]Last week, the French city of Reims got a chance to view its first Citadis tramset, when it was displayed on the plaza fronting a cathedral. T

Each of the 18 cars will sport one of the eight hues selected by Reims Métropole: yellow, orange, red, purple, pink, blue, turquoise and green. The color scheme is repeated in the interior fittings. Another distinctive feature of the Reims tram design is a front side that evokes the slender, delicate lines of a champagne flute.

Alstom is providing a turnkey solution for the Reims tramway project which, in addition to 18 tramsets, involves the design and production of all electromechanical systems, including the rail track, signaling, electrical supply, catenary and ticketing system for the metropolitan area's transport system.

In addition, Alstom will handle equipment maintenance on a subcontracted basis with operator Transdev for 30 years.

The Reims tramway is due to come into service in April 2011.
