The subsidiary of Vinci Construction Chantiers Modernes Construction has won a $ 95.44 million (€ 82 million) contract with the Société du Grand Paris for the construction of a rolling stock operation and maintenance center in France.

This installation will serve the future line 18 of the Grand Paris Express, which would be the largest urban mobility project currently underway in Europe.

In total, 20% of the contract was awarded to small and medium-sized enterprises.

The contract includes road works and networks, earthworks, the structure, the envelope, finishing works, as well as technical installations and industrial equipment.

Located in Palaiseau, the 64,000 m² establishment will support the future line 18 which will link the Paris-Saclay research and development center to Orly airport and the city of Versailles.

The center will include an infrastructure maintenance base to maintain line equipment, such as tracks, power distribution systems, etc.

A maintenance base and a depot will be established on site for the trains of the automatic metro line, which will be 45 to 60 m long.

The installation will also include a central control room, the Tour en Fosse building, technical rooms, a security post and other technical installations.

In 2018, a contract was awarded for the base and maintenance depot of line 14 in Morangis.

The Vinci Group also carries out other projects in connection with the Grand Paris Express: underground works, railway works, information technologies, urban planning, IT and electrical engineering.

Last December, the Société du Grand Paris entrusted the consortium of companies led by Vinci Construction with the construction of the viaduct for line 18 of the Grand Paris Express metro.

The consortium was made up of Dodin Campenon Bernard, Chantiers Modernes Construction and Freyssinet, subsidiaries of VINCI Construction, and the subsidiary of the Fayat Razel-Bec group.
