After more than 5 years of tendering, COMPIN has won the contract for the supply of passenger seats for the new RER NG to an the ALSTOM / BOMBARDIER Consortium.
This contract, ordered by SNCF, on behalf of Ile-de-France Mobilités (the former STIF) which represents one of the largest contracts in the history of rail in Europe, includes a first delivery of 71 trains with possible options that could reach 371 trains.
To date, the contracts won by the Consortium covers the supply of 255 trains that will run, from 2021, on the future lines E (130 new trains) and D (125 trains) of “Le Grand Paris”.
For the first tranche, COMPIN will produce nearly 37,000 seats, out of 193,000 in total. The range of seats includes fixed, tip-up and folding seats that will be supplied from our manufacturing sites of Evreux and Lodz. This project will ensure a workload for the company up to 2023 and beyond with the other tranches.
