RATP (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) Paris metro operator has awarded Ansaldo STS a contract for the implementation of the OCTYS system (Open Control of Trains, Interchangeable & Integrated System) CBTC based technology to modernize the 14 km serving 28 stations of Paris metro line 6.

The project is part of “Metro 2030” strategic plan initiated by RATP for the modernization of the metro operating systems with the development of digital technologies on Paris metro network. Already operating since end of 2012 on line 3, Ansaldo STS’s CBTC offers the highest performances by reducing significantly the headways and increase operational efficiency.

Within the scope of the contract, Ansaldo STS will provide an updated version of its CBTC technology and systems (Zone Controller, Frontam) as well as related devices and architecture to interface with existing wayside signalling equipment in order to perform the wayside automation systems on RATP line 6.

Ansaldo STS is proud and committed to support RATP in the path for a more modern, more convenient and even more connected metro network in Paris.
