From 2024, SNCF Voyageurs will put the new TGV-M into service. This new generation multiplies innovations to reduce energy consumption by 20% and improve the carbon footprint by 37% compared to current trains.
To accommodate this new rolling stock, SNCF Voyageurs is adapting and modernizing its maintenance workshops. New ultrasonic installations for measuring TGV wheel defects will be installed at the Paris-Conflans site.
The schedule foresees the construction of the building between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2024, for a full commissioning of the equipment in the third quarter of 2024.
A call for applications is underway for the contract for the supply, installation and commissioning of the ultrasonic installation. Interested companies are invited to submit a file on the SNCF internet platform.
