RATP awards Ansaldo a CBTC contract

Paris public transport operator Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP) has awarded Ansaldo STS a contract for the implementation of the OCTYS system (Open Control of Trains, Interchangeable & Integrated System) CBTC based technology to modernize the 14 km Paris metro line 6 with 28 stations.
Within the scope of the contract, Ansaldo STS will provide an updated version of its CBTC technology and systems (Zone Controller, Frontam) as well as related devices and architecture to interface with existing wayside signalling equipment in order to perform the wayside automation systems on line 6.
The project is part of the “Metro 2030” strategic plan initiated by RATP for the modernization of the metro operating systems with the development of digital technologies for the Paris metro network. Already operating since the end of 2012 on line 3, Ansaldo STS’s CBTC system offers the highest performances by reducing significantly the headways and increasing operational efficiency.
