Alstom to deliver trams to Morocco

Posted on November 17, 2009

Casa Transports, the public company in charge of the construction of the tramway network in Casablanca, Morocco, chose Alstom Transport for the delivery and maintenance of 74 Citadis trams.


The deal also includes options for the supply of additional trainsets, as well as maintenance of the fleet over a 15-year period. The global value of this market amounts to more than $179.7 million.


Alstom will supply Citadis trams coupled in double units of 213 feet each – a configuration practically identical to the trainsets currently under construction in Rabat. This will optimize spare parts and the maintenance costs of both networks.


The first trainsets will be delivered to Casa Transports 24 months after the contract becomes effective, with entry into commercial service expected for December 2012. The 74 Citadis trams will be operated on a 18.6-mile line crossing the city from east to west. It is expected to carry up to 250,000 passengers per day.
