The Region Occitanie train renovation market was launched by SNCF in January 2020, and won by SAFRA in September of the same year.
This contract concerns 12 trainsets in the Midi-Pyrénées zone (3 cases) and 7 trainsets in the Languedoc-Roussillon zone (4 cases) for the firm tranche, and 10 trainsets for the optional tranche, which may be decided 3 months before the end of the market. The work will last 26 months.
The planned services on these TER will be carried out in 2 major stages.
A first step will concern only a prototype, trainset n°1, on which the complete inventory of the general work to be carried out will be determined. The production period for the prototype train is fixed at 42 days, compared with 21 days for the following trains. The services to be carried out indoors include: renovation of seats, floor coverings, cleaning of other interior coverings, removal of waste bins, installation of a complete passenger counting system, replacement of all halogen lighting with LEDs, and renovation of ceilings. For the exterior, the complete livery is redone, with painting and adhesive installation. A complete makeover for a second life.
