The MP14 Metro trains from Alstom have been put into service on Line 14, serving station between Olympiades and Saint-Lazare in Paris.
The trains were put into service by alérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France Region and of Île-de-France Mobilités, and Catherine Guillouard, CEO of RATP, in the presence of Henri Poupart-Lafarge, Chairman and CEO of Alstom.
“We are proud to see the MP14 metro running in Île-de-France after having designed and manufactured it in our centre of metro excellence in Valenciennes, with the contribution of seven other Alstom sites in France for the components. A project like MP14 will make it possible to ensure production at eight Alstom sites in France and its suppliers until around 2026,” said Henri Poupart-Lafarge, Chairman and CEO of Alstom.
20 metros are currently on order for Line 14, which will be delivered in 2021. Production of the metros for Line 4 is currently in the pre-production stage.
The five-car rains set for Line 11 will be constructed in the last quarter of 2020, ready for qualification tests in 2021.
The MP14s offer a new interior layout and comfort for passengers thanks to the LED lighting and ventilation.
