Implenia to help build the new Line 15 South, including 7 km of tunnels, a branch-off structure and nine auxiliary structures | Successful strategy implementation outside home markets
Having already won the contract for the “Lot GC01” section of the “Grand Paris Express” project at the end of June 2016, Implenia secured a second order today: the “Lot T2C” Noisy Champs Tunnel section of Line 15 South in the south-east of Paris. As with the first, Implenia will carry out this second major Grand Paris Express infrastructure order together with its consortium partners NGE (F), Demathieu & Bard (F) and Pizzarotti (IT).
The whole project is being commissioned and funded by Société du Grand Paris (SGP), which is the public body responsible for planning and building the new “Grand Paris Express”. The latter is a transport network made up of six driverless subway lines. It includes around 200 kilometres of new tunnels and almost 70 new underground stations. Further construction lots will be awarded over the course of the next year.
The latest order includes two start shafts south of Noisy Champs, the excavation of a 4.7 km long tunnel towards Bry-Villiers-Champigny (excluding stations), excavation of a 2.2 km long tunnel link to the maintenance and logistics station (SMR), as well as a large underground branch-off structure and eight intermediate shafts. Winning this project marks another important step forward for Implenia in the implementation of the company’s strategy outside its home markets. This is now the second “Grand Paris Express” lot that Implenia has been asked to build. Two months ago, the company won the “Lot GC01” contract to extend Line 11 for which construction is scheduled to begin in mid-October 2016.
