Alstom to maintain Morocco’s locomotive fleet

Alstom has signed a protocol with the Moroccan rail operator Office National des Chemins de Fer (ONCF) for the maintenance of a fleet of new-generation PRIMA M4 electric locomotives.

Alstom will offer the maintenance services through its local joint venture MALOCO (Alstom – ONCF).

The electric locomotives are being supplied by Alstom as part of a contract won in 2018 for the supply of 30 locomotives. Deliveries started in December 2019 and since then, fifteen PRIMA M4 locomotives have been delivered to Morocco. Ten locomotives have entered commercial service, transporting passengers and freight.

The PRIMA M4 locomotives have a nominal power of 5.5 MW, a maximum operating speed of 160 km/h and operate under 3 kV DC voltage. They are equipped with ETCS Level 1.
