Alstom to provide ATO system for Paris’ metro Line 6

RATP awarded Alstom the contract for the supply of train operation system I-CBTC to line 6 of the Paris metro. In total, 47 MP89 metros and 28 stations on line 6 will be equipped with Alstom solutions.
The contract envisages the on-board system, which carries out the automatic train operation, and the radio system, which transmits data between the train and the ground. Alstom is in charge of the development, validation, industrialisation, installation, testing and commissioning of both batches.
I-CBTC is an interchangeable CBTC-type automation system that meets the criteria of the RATP for the OCTYS standard. It contributes to improving frequency and increasing the metro availability rate to nearly 100 per cent on line 6. Developed in partnership with the RATP, I-CBTC carries out the functions of remote operation, enabling the metros to circulate in total safety, and operates the traction and braking systems to move the metros automatically from one station to another. Close to 130 MF01 metros in Paris, in operation on lines 5 and 9, are now equipped with Alstom’s I-CBTC on-board solution. The MP14 metros due to enter circulation on line 11 will also be equipped.
This contract will be carried out by three of Alstom’s sites in France. Experts based in Aix-en-Provence will develop the on-board system and ensure the overall engineering of the project. Those based in Saint-Ouen will carry out the engineering for the radio transmission system and ground-based equipment, as well as the testing and commissioning activities, and the experts of Villeurbanne will provide the equipment for the radio system.
