MRT – Line 14 of the Paris Metro – METEOR

SYSTRA worked as a Technical Consultant on the METEOR (East-West Mass Rapid Transit) project.

Following the inauguration of the first section between Madeleine and Bibliothèque François Mitterrand in 1998, Line 14 was then extended to Gare Saint-Lazare in 2003 and to Olympiades in 2007. This underground line was the world’s very first fully automated, driverless metro. By 2019, Line 14 will have been extended northwards to Mairie de Saint-Ouen. In the long-term, this 30km line will become the backbone of the new Grand Paris service, running between the business park at Saint-Denis Pleyel in the north and Orly airport in the south.

RATP and SYSTRA experts helped to produce the design studies for the METEOR project.
SYSTRA was responsible for:

  • Systems implementation;
  • Producing software engineering studies;
  • Developing testing and validation procedures;
  • Calculating safety requirements;
  • Reviewing manufacturer activities and in particular calculations for on-board safety control systems.
  • Developing the functional specifications for the traction power control systems;
  • Developing the functional specifications for governing train movements;
  • Approving maintenance procedures;
  • Certifying the safety of automated rail systems.
