Alstom is to supply 20 MP14 metros consisting of 6 cars each to the STIF and the RATP [1] for an amount of 163 million euros[2] as part of the automation and modernisation of line 4, the second most frequented line of the Paris metro. This option exercise is part of the MP14 framework contract signed in January 2015 between the RATP (mandated by the STIF and the SGP) and Alstom concerning the delivery of up to 217 MP14 trains over 15 years for a total amount of over 2 billion euros.

“Alstom is delighted to receive an additional order for this material, which will mobilise the entire French railway industry. This metro contains numerous innovations, in particular related to reductions in energy consumption and total cost of ownership,” says Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, Alstom France General Director.

Due to circulate on line 4, the MP14 trains will help to increase the capacity and quality of transport on the line, with a targeted global service equivalent to that of line 1. The MP14 trains, whose design and passenger comfort levels have been completely revised, enable full passenger circulation without separations between the cars and have been fitted with air conditioning and audio-visual information for passengers. The material represents a 20% reduction in energy consumption compared to the previous generation. It offers unprecedented levels of comfort and security thanks to new ergonomic seats, LED lighting, fluidity of exchanges, information on board, video protection. Its 100% electric braking system recovers energy and reinjects it into the grid in the form of electricity, thus limiting the emission of fine particles emitted by the brake pads.

This option exercise will make it possible to maintain jobs in France for several years, concerning the seven Alstom sites that design and produce the metro (Valenciennes, Le Creusot, Ornans, Villeurbanne, Tarbes, Saint-Ouen and Aix en Provence) as well as its suppliers.
