Alstom Will Supply 14 Additional Metro Trains to STIF and RATP for the Paris
A contract worth €127 million
LEVALLOIS-PERRET, France -- November 14, 2012
The transport authority of Ile-de-France region STIF^1 and the Paris metro
operator RATP^2 have ordered 14 additional MP05 metro trains to Alstom
Transport (Paris:ALO), for a total amount of €127 million, funded at 100% by
the STIF. 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.
In terms of comfort, large bay windows provide space inside the metro train,
while the highly colourful interior makes the journey even more enjoyable.
Cooled ventilation renews the air and maintains a constant temperature. The
installation of Alstom’s traction system ONIX coupled with the optimization of
the bogies, reduce electrical and mechanical noise and limit vibration.
Cameras and microphones linked to the control centre reinforce safety on board
This option is part of the contract signed on 20 October 2005 between RATP and
Alstom, which involved an initial firm order for 49 trains. As of today, 42 of
these first trains have been delivered and have covered more than 2.2 million
MP05 trains are designed and manufactured in France at the Valenciennes plant.

Tarbes for traction chains, Ornans for engines, Le Creusot for bogies and

project brings 800 direct and indirect jobs to Alstom and its French
