After it officially declared its intention to quit the maintenance of Casablanca’s tramway last August, Alstom has now officially quit the job.
Alstom will be replaced by another French company, namely RATP, also known as the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens, a state-owned public transport operator headquartered in Paris, France.
Morocco’s leading economy news outlet Leconomiste said that the “real reasons behind the French company making such decision remain vague.”
Back-then on August 8, 2014, the company released a statement saying that they are officially quitting Morocco but will be still tacking full-charge of their duties during a transition period of approximately one month.
The French company said that the reason behind this decision is a result of “unresolved contractual differences.”
According to Leconomiste, Casa Tram, the main company tacking charge of the hustle and the bustle of the tramway in Morocco’s economic-hub city advanced the same reason as Alstrom to justify this split, namely “unresolved contractual differences.”
