Jan. 30, 2015

Alstom has been designated by RATP , mandated by STIF  and SGP , as the contractor to supply metros trains for lines 1, 4, 6, 11 and 14 of the Paris metro and the Grand Paris. The contract is for a maximum of 217 MP14 trains over a period of 15 years and is worth a total amount of more than €2 billion. A first firm order, for an amount of around €500 million, concerns 35 eight-car metros for line 14. This should be followed by a second order for up to 37 trains for extensions to this line and then conditional options.

"This contract award is fresh proof of the confidence placed in Alstom. It has mobilised the entire French rail industry around a product that is innovative, efficient and competitive. Passengers will appreciate its comfort and reliability ," says Henri Poupart-Lafarge, Alstom Transport president.
