Alstom’s MP14 metro trains have entered service on the Line 14 extension to Mairie de Saint-Ouen in Paris.
The extension was opened by Jean Castex, Prime Minister, Barbara Pompili, Minister of Ecological Transition, Jean-Baptiste Djebarri, Minister Delegate to the Minister of Ecological Transition in charge of Transport, Valérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France Regional Council and Île-de-France Mobilités and Catherine Guillouard, CEO of the RATP group, and Henri Poupart Lafarge, CEO of Alstom.
The MP14s now operate on the whole of Line 14, which runs from Olympiades to Mairie de Saint-Ouen.
“We are particularly proud to see the MP14 metros entering commercial service as far as the station Mairie de Saint-Ouen. These metros, which we designed and manufactured at eight Alstom sites in France, now serve the head office of the Alstom group. The arrival of the MP14 metros will directly improve the daily lives of tens of thousands of people, including the 3,000 employees of the Alstom group based in Saint-Ouen. This site is the group’s global headquarters and the biggest centre of railway expertise in Europe,” declared Henri Poupart-Lafarge, Chairman and CEO of Alstom.
The MP14s offer a new interior layout and comfort for passengers thanks to the LED lighting and ventilation.
