LTA Contract 851E for the procurement of 11 additional electric multiple unit (EMU) trains for the Circle Line was awarded to Alstom Transport. The new trains will supplement the existing Alstom Metropolis C830 and Alstom Metropolis C830C trains on the Circle Line when the 4.3km long extension opens in Year 2025.

Alstom was awarded the contract for these third-generation Circle Line trains for S$279.8 million on 2 October 2017. However, under modified contract terms, the contract sum also includes an unknown number of trains for the North East Line.
