Morocco: The Moroccan national operator, ONCF, has published a MAD 16 bln ($1.6 bln) tender for 150 regional and 18 high-speed trains.

The purchase is intended to renew the current rolling stock as well as expand the fleet to meet higher passenger traffic.

The trains are to be handed over to the customer in 2027–2030. Under the tender documents, the successful bidder will build a plant and a depot in the country. The Al Boraq high-speed line with Alstom rolling stock has been operating in Morocco since 2018.

The operator was looking to acquire 120 trains. Mohammed Smouni, ONCF’s Deputy CEO, said that ten global rolling stock manufacturers answered the request for proposals, including Alstom, CAF, and Talgo.
