At the 3rd Assises des Mobilités, the Métropole Européenne de Lille (MEL) and Alstom presented the future metro for the metropolitan region. The presentation took place in Alstom’s maintenance workshop in Villeneuve d’Ascq. The event was attended by Damien Castelain, President of MEL, Gilles Fargier, General Manager of Ilévia, the public transport operator of the Lille metropolitan area, and Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France.
The new 52m rubber-tyre metro trains will have a capacity of 405. The design aims to be spacious thanks to the absence of partitions between the four cars. Passengers will benefit from improved accessibility and better information displays. There will be areas for persons with reduced mobility.
The integrated video protection system will contribute to safety and security both on board the trains and on the platforms. The high-performance traction system marks an improvement in energy efficiency. Alstom’s solution should reduce MEL’s energy consumption by 20 percent.
“We are delighted that the European Metropolitan Area of Lille has proposed that we join the 3rd Conference on Mobility and Accessibility of the Metropolitan Area to present the future metro and the progress of this ambitious project, which is of major importance for Alstom.”
Alstom is working with local French partners on this project. 40 percent of the subsystems are French-made and 45 percent of that total is made by local companies in the Hauts-de-France region, of which Lille is the capital.
In total, six of Alstom’s 13 sites in France are working on the project for MEL.
