11 October 2022 – Alstom, a global leader in sustainable and green mobility solutions, released its first Impact Report for Morocco in partnership with Ernst & Young. The report captures the socio-economic contributions and ESG goals by Alstom in Morocco from April 2021 to March 2022.
Alstom has been actively engaged in addressing Morocco’s growing mobility needs, while also supporting the country’s industrial plans and positioning Morocco as part of Alstom’ global supply chain. Alstom produces electrical cabinet and harnesses and soon on-board transformers in Fez, that are used in rolling stock delivered to customers around the world. The plant in Fez is an important part of Alstom’s global supply chain and equips over 20 projects a year.
“Morocco is an important market for Alstom, and we are committed to working alongside our partners as they execute the country’s vision. We have a strong presence in the country with two production lines serving Alstom projects globally, with a plan to grow the rail industrial and engineering base further” stated Mehdi Sahel, Managing Director of Alstom Morocco.
“Alstom Morocco is committed to develop greener, cleaner and safer mobility with and for Moroccans. We are delighted to share the results of this report and the impact of the work being done in the country. This report is a demonstration of our commitment to measure and continuously improve our impact in Morocco and beyond" said Andrew Deleone, President of Alstom in Africa, Middle East, and Central Asia.
The solutions selected by our customers have a considerable impact on the day to day lives of Moroccan residents and are an integral part of the modernisation of the country’s rail network. The 12 Avelia Euroduplex purchased by ONCF were used to introduce the first Very High-Speed Line in Africa in 2018 to connect Tangier to Casablanca in just 2 hours and 10 mins. Alstom delivered the first Citadis trams to Rabat and Casablanca in 2011 with 190 delivered to date. ONCF selected 77 Prima Locomotives for its modular platform to allow operators flexible solutions freight, passenger and mixed operations. Today, 1,310 linear rail kilometers are equipped with Alstom signalling solutions. E&Y estimated that passenger trains in Morocco have 89% less gCO2/passenger.km compared to cars and the country will see further reduction on Co2 emissions as they increase the use of renewables in the energy mix.
