The EOLE project receives an award from the International Tunnelling Association ITA - AITES
The Eole project for the extension of the RER E in the Paris region, for which Egis in a consortium is responsible for the overall project management on behalf of SNCF Réseau, has been awarded the "Major Project of the Year" trophy.
On Friday 24 November in Mumbai, the International Tunnelling & Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES), which has 79 member countries, awarded the prize in the top category, "Major Project of the Year", to the Eole project. The assessment focused in particular on the project's safety record, its level of complexity, the scale of the challenges faced and its innovation.
As a reminder, Eole involves the extension of the RER E line by 55 km to the west of the Paris region, including the construction of a new underground section between Haussmann-Saint-Lazare and Nanterre-La Folie. A major mobility project for the Ile-de-France region, as 700,000 passengers are expected to use the entire line every day.
The consortium formed by Egis with SETEC TPI (leader) and the Dutilleul agency is responsible for the complete project management of the infrastructure and systems of the new section, which includes 3 new stations, 8 km of tunnel and 9 service structures, on behalf of SNCF RESEAU.
A first place on the podium for this exceptional project and a great team victory as we look towards commissioning before the Paris 2024 Olympics & Paralympics games!
