BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Oct. 24, 2014) - Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation will supply 60 MF01 metro cars to the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP) and the Syndicat des Transports d'Ile-de-France (STIF) as part of a consortium comprised of Alstom Transport, Bombardier Transportation and Areva Technicatome.

This order for 12, five-vehicle train sets is a part of an ongoing contract signed in 2001 and will amount to a total of approximately 75 million euro as published by RATP. Bombardier's share is approximately 33%.

Lines 2 and 5 have already been fully equipped with the MF01 and the units are gradually being rolled out to replace the existing metro sets on line 9. The new cars will be delivered between 2016 and 2017.

Bombardier's site in Crespin, France, will produce 24 fully equipped drivers' cabs, 60 cars and 120 BOMBARDIER FLEXX Metro Bogies. Bogies are a critical component of metro trains in terms of safety, maintenance cost and passenger comfort. FLEXX Metro bogies are extremely reliable and their lightweight concept enables maximum vehicle capacity utilisation with minimum energy consumption. Passengers also benefit from the innovative FLEXX Metro bogies as they ensure a smooth ride with low noise levels.
