Alstom to build a transformer production line in Morocco

Alstom is investing €10.5m ($11.83m) in Morocco to build a new production line and develop in-country capability to manufacture onboard transformers for metros, trams and regional trains.

It will be the second production line at Alstom’s facility in Fez, which currently produces harnesses and electrical cabinets for rail. The production line, which will take up about 13,000 sqm of the facility, will be operational in 2023 and will have a production capacity of up to 200 transformers per year.

The transformers produced in Morocco will be installed on rolling stock in the Petit-Quevilly facility in France, Alstom’s centre of excellence for transformers.
