The consortium also includes SATEE, the Alstom Transport
joint-venture located in Shanghai that specialises in traction
equipment.

The contract involves 24x6 coach Metropolis train sets.
Alstom Transport is responsible for the design, traction
system, auxiliary electrical power supply, TCMS (Train Control
and Monitoring System) and technical services. Puzhen is in
charge of manufacturing the train sets. Delivery of the first
train is scheduled for December 2008. The trains will begin to
operate on line 2 of the Nanjing metro beginning November
2009.

Alstom Transport and Puzhen, whose factory is located in the
northern part of Nanjing, have already supplied the metro train
sets used on Nanjings first metro line, which entered
into service in September 2005 just before the Chinese National
Games. The two companies have cooperated since 1999, when the
contract for Shanghai Line 3 Metro was signed. To date, Alstom
Transport has sold over 260 metro coaches to the city of
Nanjing and over 780 Metropolis coaches to the city of
Shanghai. In total, more than 1,900 Metropolis coaches have
been sold across the world.
