Alstom and Colas Rail have won a contract worth nearly 11 million euros to provide power supply equipment for the future east-west tramway line of the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropole. The commissioning of the 11-kilometre line[1] is planned for 2018. 

This project is a true technological showcase for Alstom, which will also supply 19 new-generation Citadis trams to the east-west line, as well as its new ground-based charging solution SRS. We are honoured by the renewed confidence of the Nice Metropole, which thereby benefits from Alstom's extensive range of solutions and expertise. With more than 15 years of experience, Alstom offers reliable and proven power supply solutions. In total, Alstom's electrification solutions provide power to approximately 600 kilometres of lines around the world, said Jean-Baptiste Eyméoud, President of Alstom France. 

The contract includes the studies, supply, assembly and testing of power supply equipment for traction, low and high voltage. The firm part of the order covers the delivery of 7 electrical substations, 10 Lighting Power Station and 2 Intake Power Station. The optional part of the order relates to the supply of two additional substations. 

Alstom, the principal contractor and project manager, and Colas Rail, will ensure all services as an integrated team. Alstoms Infrastructure teams, based in Saint-Ouen, Villeurbanne and Nice, will lead and carry out the project. 

The teams of Colas Rail based in Louveciennes, Cergy Pontoise and Nice will carry out the studies, installations and tests for the project.
