Alstom and Bombardier Deliver 100th MI09 Trainset to STIF and RATP
Alstom and Bombardier celebrate with STIF and RATP that the 100th MI09 duplex train has been delivered to Line A of the RER network in Paris. The delivery is part of a contract awarded to the Alstom-Bombardier consortium in 2009. In February 2015, STIF ordered an extra 10 trains.
Alstom and Bombardier MI09 Trains
Every MI09 can transport up to 2,600 passengers at a maximum speed of 120km/h. Each train is 110 metres long and is made up of five cars. The MI09 has a highly efficient electrical breaking system that reduces the energy consumption of the trains. A Wi-Fi link between the train and the ground ensures the transmutation of the operational parameters, allowing for reliable maintenance operations and reliable service.
Line A of the Paris RER transports 1.2 million passengers a day, which makes it the most heavily frequented regional line in Europe. The MI09 trains currently in service on the line have already covered over 24 million kilometres.
