Alstom to supply 49 Citadis trams to Nantes Métropole

Alstom is to supply 49 Citadis trams to Nantes Métropole for the sum of nearly 200 million euros.

"The city of Nantes, which initiated the renewal of the modern tram in the 1980s, has made its mark on the history of urban transport in France. We are extremely proud that the city of Nantes has once again trusted us to equip its network with our state-of-the-art Citadis trams,” declares Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, Senior Vice President of Alstom France.

These state-of-the-art Citadis trams have standardised, proven, more accessible components, providing the residents of Nantes with reliable, readily available way to move around the city. The Citadis trams for Nantes are particularly energy efficient and over 99% recyclable.

Seven of Alstom's 13 sites in France will be involved in the design and manufacture of the tram for Nantes Métropole: La Rochelle (design and assembly of the trams and logistical support), Le Creusot (bogies), Ornans (traction motors), Valenciennes (interior layout), Aix-en-Provence (protection and driver assistance system), Saint-Ouen (after-sales service), and Villeurbanne (on-board electronic systems).

To date, more than 2,600 Citadis trams have been sold to over 5o cities in 20 countries around the world, including 23 in France, with nearly 20 years of experience and more than one billion kilometres travelled.
