Colas Rail Wins New €15 Mln Deal in Morocco

French Colas Rail Company, leader in railway infrastructures, has been awarded by Casa Transport SA, a €15 million contract for building the low-voltage systems for lines T3 and T4 of the Casablanca tramway.

This new contract includes studies and the installation of the low-voltage systems on track, video surveillance & sound system, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), the multiservice network, time synchronisation and telecoms.

This contract follows those already won in 2021 for electrification (catenaries and electrical substations) and the laying of railway tracks for the central section of the two lines T3 and T4 of the Casablanca tramway. These two lines will strengthen the public transport offer of the most populated city in Morocco, which has nearly 4 million inhabitants. Line T3 will serve 20 stations over a length of 14 km of double track platform, and line T4, with a double track platform, will have 19 stations.

Commenting the new deal, Hervé Le Joliff, Chairman of Colas Rail, said it shows that there is a real bond, built on trust between the Moroccan local authorities and Colas Rail.

As in previous projects for the Casablanca tramway, “we are committed to deliver an integrated, reliable and safe system to our historical partner”, he added.

Colas Rail has taken part in all construction projects for tramway systems carried out in Morocco such as lines 1 and 2 of the Rabat-Salé tramway and its extensions, as well as lines T1 and T2 of the Casablanca tramway (railway and platforms, then overhead contact line and electrical substations).
