Alstom has won a contract to provide tramways to run on the T7 and T8 tramway lines in the Paris metropolitan area in France.

The first tranche, totalling nearly €50m ($68m), includes 19 Citadis trainsets for the T7 line, which runs from Villejuif to Athis-Mons.

A second tranche, to be exercised at a later date, will include 20 additional trainsets for the T8 line, which will connect Saint-Denis with Epinay and Villetaneuse.

The contract is being financed jointly by the public transport authorities STIF and RATP and could eventually total 70 trainsets.
The T7 and T8 trainsets will be produced in France, with design and assembly at the Alstom plant in La Rochelle, engine manufacture at Ornans, bogie manufacture at Creusot, power-train equipment manufacture at Tarbes and onboard electronics assembly at Villeurbanne.
Each of the T7 and T8 Citadis tramsets will be 32m long and 2.4m wide, and will accommodate over 200 passengers.
