Alstom: to supply 22 extra Citadis trams to Rabat.

(CercleFinance.com) - Alstom this morning announced that it has received an order for 22 additional Citadis trams from the Société des transports de Rabat-Salé (STRS) in Morocco.

The contract is worth an estimated 45 million euros.

"Since their entry into service in May 2011, the number of users of Rabat-Salé's two tramway lines has steadily increased, with over 150 million passengers transported to date. To meet the growing need for mobility, STRS has decided to add 7 km of line to the existing 19 km and increase its existing fleet of 44 Citadis trams by ordering 22 additional trams from Alstom," explained the French rail equipment manufacturer, which has begun a merger with the German group Siemens Mobility.

The trams will be manufactured in La Rochelle, but the contract will also involve the sites of Creusot (for bogies), Villeurbanne, Tarbes, and Saint-Ouen, as well as Sesto in Italy.

Delivery is scheduled "26 months after the date of the contract's entry into force".
