The RATP selects Faiveley Transport and Eiffage Énergie to equip line 4 of the Paris metro
As part of the automation of Line 4 of the Paris Metro approved by Paris region transport authority (STIF), RATP has selected Faiveley Transport, in consortium with Eiffage Énergie Ferroviaire, to provide platform screen doors for the 27 existing stations and the 2 new stations that will extend the line to Bagneux. The contract amounts to more than €75 million.
The Line 4 stations will all be equipped with platform edge barriers, as is the case on the automated Lines 1 and 14. Full automation of the line is scheduled for 2022.
Faiveley Transport will be responsible for the study, development, supply, certification, installation, testing and commissioning of semi-full height platform edge barriers. The studies, production and monitoring of the installation will be carried out by the Saint-Pierre des Corps (Touraine) site, the Group’s Platform Screen Doors Centre of Competence.
Eiffage Énergie Ferroviaire will be responsible for the factory pre-assembly of the platform edge barriers and the on-site installation of the modules made in this way, 18 per platform.
