Alstom to Supply 60 Additional RER NG Trains in Île-de-France

Alstom has been contracted to supply SNCF Voyageurs with 60 additional RER new generation (NG) trains for lines RER D and RER E on the Île-de-France network.

This order is worth almost 1 billion EUR and is financed by Île-de-France Mobilités.

The exercised option is part of the 2017 framework contract between SNCF Voyageurs and Alstom for an estimated 255 trainsets.

The initial RER NG contract included the delivery of 71 trains, the first of which was delivered at the end of 2022. This latest order now brings the number of ordered RER NG units to 131.

Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France said:

“We are delighted with this option, which demonstrates the renewed confidence of SNCF Voyageurs and Île-de-France Mobilités in Alstom’s RER NG trains. This new generation train will improve the travel experience of all Île-de-France residents by providing greater comfort and reliability.”

The RER NG has been specifically developed for the region’s dense urban areas. Its open-plan interior is designed to optimise capacity and passenger flow, with each 7-car train able to carry up to 1,860 passengers.

In addition, the new model is equipped with several features to reduce energy consumption by 25% compared to Île-de-France Mobilités’ previous trains. For example, the RER NG has 8 motor bogies which provide better acceleration and deceleration performance.
