- Bombardier’s Crespin site in France reaches unprecedented quality delivery levels, especially for the Francilien
- The Francilien fleet is currently the best performing fleet in Ile de France
Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation has won the 2014 SNCF Trophy in the category Best Manufacturer and Site. Jean-Marc Larivoire, Director of SNCF Rolling Stock, visited Bombardier’s Crespin site to present the trophy in person to the Francilien and site teams.
This trophy confirms the high customer satisfaction for the Francilien project. It rewards the efforts the teams have put in to bring the Francilien to the expected level of reliability and quality while ensuring good availability of the trains in operation. Line H currently achieves a punctuality level of more than 95%, the best score on the entire Ile de France network.
Bombardier succeeded in delivering three trains per month, with an unprecedented level of quality for the Crespin site, even better than for the emblematic AGC contract, with a record of less than
30 reworks per train.
This outstanding result is the fruit of the joint constructive efforts of all Crespin departments – engineering, production, bogies, commissioning, quality, procurement – supporting the project team. Over 300 people were fully dedicated to the Francilien. In addition, suppliers and subcontractors did their best to follow the pace in terms of delivery and quality.
“Crespin employees made considerable efforts to reach this outcome, and this trophy is a very rewarding and encouraging message from our client SNCF,” said Jean-Baptiste Eymeoud, Head of Projects, Continental Europe, Bombardier Transportation. “Driven by a strong commitment, Bombardier teams along with our suppliers turned this challenging commissioning of such a new ultra-modern highly automated commuter train into a success now recognized by passengers and customers.”
