Eiffage Énergie Systèmes Develops Monitoring Systems for Grand Paris Express Line 18

As part of the Grand Paris Express, the Eiffage Energy Systems branch, in a consortium with Axians, has been mandated to deploy and maintain the multi-service network and surveillance systems that enable the operation and safety of the structures in the stations, maintenance sites and ancillary structures of line 18. Currently under construction, the future metro line will connect Orly airport to Versailles from 2030. \

The future line 18 of the Grand Paris Express includes ten stations, three operations-maintenance buildings and 22 specific structures, in which will be deployed: 1,500 ground cameras, 1,300 access control terminals, 500 cameras on board the trains, as well as two data centers to host all the Multiservice Network and Space Surveillance (RMS-SSE) systems, including the video protection system. 

In a group with the digital solutions specialist Axians, in charge of the network, cybersecurity, IT systems and on-board cameras, the teams of Eiffage Énergie Systèmes (the group’s agent) are responsible for the design and commissioning of the video surveillance, access control, air quality measurement and temporary supervision systems for Orly station. 

“Regarding video surveillance, we will provide the 1,500 cameras that will be installed in the stations by specialist companies. We will also provide all the IT infrastructure to process the video streams captured by the cameras. Servers dedicated to video surveillance will be installed in the data centers. Ultimately, all the streams captured by the 2,000 cameras on line 18 will represent more than 4 PB of video and will be sent, in real time, to the control-command system of line 18 and will also be accessible by the police headquarters,” summarizes Vincent Guillet, in charge of the video surveillance part. 

The access control and intrusion detection system will be put into service using the same operating procedure, since our experts will be in charge of the engineering and configuration of the installations provided. The installation of this equipment is included in the development contracts for the works, including the EES IDS teams for the underground works of the line 

“To help line operators detect suspicious packages, fires, unauthorized presence in monitored areas or inappropriate occupancy levels, we will also integrate an Automatic Incident Detection (AID) solution into the centralized video system,” continues Vincent Guillet. 

In the space of 8 years, our specialists will have to put the first seven stations of the line into service by 2026 (phase 1) and the last three by 2030 (phase 2). While waiting for 2030 and the delivery of phase 2 of this extraordinary project, Orly station has been the subject of a “pre-phase”, the construction site of which was received at the end of March. Equipped and made operational for the Paris Olympic Games, the station, which will welcome line 14 from June 24, has been equipped with a temporary supervision system by our experts, who have been working on this project since January 2022.
