France's Alstom SA (ALO.FR) said Wednesday that it received an order to supply new trains to French state railway operator SNCF Mobilites.
The train maker said it will supply 12 Avelia Euroduplex trains, for a total amount of 335 millions euros ($373.41 million), that will be put into service from 2021 onward.
The new order comes after SNCF Mobilites previously commissioned 55 trains from Alstom that are currently being delivered, Alstom said.
"The production of these Avelia Euroduplex trains will represent employment for 400 people in La Rochelle and 120 people in Belfort," Alstom's senior vice president for France, Jean-Baptiste Eymeoud, said.
