The notice involves a public contract
II.1.4)Information on framework agreement
II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):
The new system for the operation of trains (NExTEO) consists of the implementation of a communication (CBTC train control) based on the central section of the area (area Nanterre evangile/Rosa Parks) in the RER E to the west prolonged (Eole project). This Section shall consist of an existing infrastructure between haussmann-st-lazare and evangile/Rosa Parks and infrastructure to be built between haussmann-st-lazare and Nanterre, involving the creation of three new stations (Porte Maillot, defence, and nanterre-la-folie).

The design of the RER E is available on the following link:

The Eole project express link (East-West) requires the implementation (design, qualification and deployment) of the new operating system (on-board + soil) and the treatment of its interfaces with the national rail network. It should be noted that only the future central section of the RER E will be equipped with the new system. Accordingly, it must know how to discuss with other operating systems (existing or future) outside the core area.
The targets for implementation of this technology on the line Eole are:
— improving the speed of the line by continuous reduction and control of the interval between 2 trains (objective 108 seconds),
— reduce journey times: Autopilot (ATO) allowing for the homogenisation train speed
— improve the regularity and robustness through facilitated adaption of operating instructions allowed by the oversight function,
— Strengthen security through control of movement (ATP) and the systematic presence of a driver (OAG), 2
Accepting the system — have a mix of movement between trains and trains not equipped with the technology (in particular to ensure the migration phase),
— minimise interruptions of movement during the implementation of the solution (deployment during the inactivity of the network),
— achieve a very high level of availability in the maintenance in operational condition,
— obtain an architecture of the NExTEO system which ensures its sustainability and scalability.
The contract includes the ATC (Automatic Train Control/automatic control of train) and traffic control via an ATS (Automatic Train Supervision/automatic train supervision) and all the equipment necessary for proper operation (radio beacons, etc.).
For all of these elements the market includes the design and revenue in the factory, the deployment of the system and the track and trains prior qualification test, the qualification in the environment of the Eole transport system and the associated maintenance under the maintenance in operational condition.
It is a single market whose part ATS is optional.
