    Rabat - France-based Colas Rail has secured a €15 million contract for building low-voltage systems for lines T3 and T4 of the Casablanca tramway.

    The project is expected to last for 30 months. Coral Rail will conduct studies for the project, install the low-voltage systems on track, and implement systems for video surveillance and sound, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), the multiservice network, time synchronization, and telecoms.

    “This new contract shows that there is a real bond, built on trust, between the Moroccan local authorities and Colas Rail,” Herve Le Joliff, Chairman of Colas Rail said last week in a press release.

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

    In 2021, Colas Rail won a contract for electrification and the laying of railway tracks for the central section of the T3 and T4 lines of the Casablanca tramway.

    The two lines are set to consolidate the public transport services in Morocco’s most populated city, Casablanca, which is home to nearly 4 million inhabitants.

    Line T3 will cover 14 kilometers of double-track platform and 20 new stations while line T4, also a double-track platform, will have 19 stations.

    The new line extensions are financed by a €100 million loan from the French Development Agency (AFD) and an additional $100 million loan from the International Finance Corporation.

    “These two lines will be carried out simultaneously according to a common schedule and will require an investment budget of 7 billion dirhams. Their provisional commissioning is scheduled for 2024,” Casa Transport said in 2020.

    Present in Morocco since 2008 and involved in the construction of tramway systems since its early stages, Colas Rail was chosen to develop the new Casablanca lines as it previously did with lines 1 and 2 in Rabat and Casablanca as well as the latest line extensions in Rabat.
