La livraison des locomotives Prima II entre Octobre 2009 et Mars 2010



Alstom delivers first Prima II locomotive to Morocco

Alstom Transport recently delivered the first of 20 Prima II locomotives ordered by the Moroccan National Railway Office (ONCF).

The locomotive will undergo a series of endurance tests on the Moroccan rail network before entering into commercial service. The remaining 19 locomotives will be delivered between October 2009 and March 2010.

The locomotives ordered by ONCF are part of the Prima II range, a new generation of locomotives developed by Alstom that has strongly benefited from the previous experience of the previous versions sold in France and worldwide.

Adapted to the operating conditions specified by ONCF and developed in a multi-purpose version, this locomotive is suitable for both passengers and freight, and will be used on a three-kV network. The locomotives will begin commercial operation in 2010 throughout the Moroccan network at a speed of 74.5 mph for freight operations and 99 mph for passenger transport.

Prima II arrives in Casablanca

The first of 20 Prima II electric locomotives ordered by national railway ONCFM has arrived in Casablanca after being shipped via Antwerpen. It will now undergo endurance tests before entering service next year. The rest of the locomotives will follow by March 2010.
ONCFM placed a €75m 'off the drawing board' order for the first of Alstom's highly-modular Prima II locomotives in November 2007. The Moroccan machines are rated at 5·5 MW on 3 kV DC, and are intended to haul 15-car passenger trains at 160 km/h and freight at 120 km/h.
Alstom said it has supplied 27 electric locomotives to ONCFM since 1992. It was also involved in a project to double track the Fèz - Meknès line which was completed in June 2007, and has modernised signalling on 900 km of the network. Alstom is also involved in the development of 200 km high speed line between Tanger and Kénitra.

Des bogies creusotins au Maroc

L'usine Alstom du Creusot a fourni 40 bogies pour équiper des locomotives Prima II.

Alstom vient de livrer la première des 20 locomotives Prima II commandées par l'Office National des Chemins de Fer marocain (ONCF). Conçue et fabriquée dans le centre d'expertise locomotive Alstom de Belfort (France), cette locomotive de dernière génération sera soumise, pendant les prochains mois, à une période d'endurance sur le réseau marocain, avant de pouvoir entrer en service commercial. La livraison des 19 autres locomotives s'échelonnera d'octobre 2009 à mars 2010. L'établissement Alstom situé au Creusot contribue à ce contrat en fournissant au total 40 bogies.
Les locomotives commandées par l'ONCF sont issues de la gamme Prima II. Nouvelle génération de locomotives développée par Alstom, Prima II bénéficie de tous les progrès réalisés sur les séries précédentes ayant fait leurs preuves sur les réseaux français et internationaux. Sur demande de l'opérateur marocain, ces locomotives à la pointe de la technologie ferroviaire ont été adaptées pour répondre aux futures conditions d'exploitation.
Présent au Maroc depuis plus de 40 ans, Alstom contribue à faire du réseau ferré un moyen de transport d'avenir pour le fret et les passagers, et un outil de développement pour le pays. Depuis 1992, 27 locomotives électriques ont été livrées à l'ONCF. Alstom a aussi contribué à l'amélioration du réseau ferré marocain en réalisant le doublement des voies de la ligne Fès-Meknes, en service depuis juin 2007, et en modernisant la signalisation de 900 km de lignes et de 60 gares dont celle de Casablanca.

Prima goes modular to tap new markets






LOCOMOTIVES: As well as Europe's changing freight market, Alstom has China, India and Russia in its sights as targets for the latest addition to its product range. Laurent Charlier reports from Belfort.

Unveiled at Belfort on May 20, the Prima II locomotive concept builds on Alstom's successful Prima I family and a number of developments tested on the Prima 6000 prototype. But as the embodiment of the company's new objective for the locomotive market, it makes greater use of modular design to shorten delivery times.

Faced with strong competition from Bombardier's Traxx family in the European market, Alstom has a clear strategy. 'We want to re-enter the locomotive market by changing gear', said Locomotive Platform Director Jean-Marc Tessier. 'We want to sit down with our customers, and promote our product'. Tessier has travelled to Finland to present Prima II to national operator VR Ltd which is looking to renew its locomotive fleet.

Although the first locomotives will be built to the standard 1 435 mm gauge, the Prima II has been designed with broader gauges in mind. Outside Europe, Alstom sees its marketing strategy as being targeted at China, India and the 1 520 mm gauge railways of the former Soviet Union.

'Alstom has had its difficulties, but we are now working at a much faster pace', said Tessier. Proof of this is the fact that investment in the Locomotives business has been increased from an annual level of €1m before 2006 to reach €3m on production facilities alone in 2008-09, accompanied by spending of between €2m and €9m on research and development.


Morocco orders first

Like its AGV high speed train (RG 3.08 p146), Alstom has sold the first Prima II straight off the drawing board. But in contrast to previous locomotive designs, the first customer is ONCF of Morocco rather than Alstom's traditional domestic client SNCF. A €75m contract for the supply of 20 locomotives was placed in November 2007. Designed to handle 15-car passenger trains at speeds up to 160 km/h, the locomotives will also be able to haul freight trains grossing up to 2 200 tonnes.

The first unit for ONCF is due to be rolled out in July 2009. Before that, during the spring and early summer of next year three European demonstrators will emerge, all capable of operating under four different voltages but equipped for different signalling and safety systems. From mid-2010 onwards, acceptance trials will be conducted in various countries on the basis of the European corridors for which the locomotives have been conceived. The precise timetable has yet to be established, but Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and France have already been mentioned.

Alongside its new modular platform, the Prima I still remains in the Alstom catalogue and some potential customers are showing interest in a hybrid incorporating features of both versions. Alstom says it is listening to its clients and does not rule anything out. A diesel version of the Prima II is also being planned for the longer term.





Standard modular platform

The flexible, modular concept of the Prima II design is intended to allow Alstom to provide its customers with a locomotive adapted to its specific requirements. This will be achieved by combining various options, whilst using standardised subsystems to help to keep the cost down. Alstom is now following a 'corridor' approach, with signalling and safety systems installed according to operational requirements. The same applies to the traction package, which can be tailored to fit the necessary supply voltages.

Modular design means that a locomotive could be reconfigured to meet changing requirements over the course of a 30 to 40-year working life. A leasing company, for example, might wish to acquire a wide variety of locomotive types in order to respond quickly to the needs of potential operators. An initial requirement for 25 kV and 15 kV AC operation could be met by installing the appropriate traction equipment, but with the leasing market changing constantly, 3 kV and 1·5 kV DC capability might be required at a later date. This would be possible using the Prima II concept.

The first Prima II locomotives ordered by ONCF will be fitted with 3 kV DC traction equipment, but designed for a 25 kV capability when the Moroccan national operator begins to adopt this voltage in its future electrification schemes. As delivered, the locomotives will be fitted with the necessary converters for 3 kV DC operation, but with provision for the installation of a transformer at a later date.

The modular Prima II platform is also designed to accommodate other operator-specific requirements. The cab can accept the standardised EU Driver's Desk now under development, with central, left- or right-hand driving positions, as well as the fire-prevention and maintenance management systems required by different operators. Prima II is designed to operate across a wide temperature range from -40°C to 50°C, and can also be equipped for remote control.

Building on proven products

Development of the new platform has built on the success of existing designs such as the Prima I electric locomotives delivered to SNCF and Chinese Railways. Prima II inherits the mechanical equipment of its predecessor, combined with the traction package of the Prima 6000 prototype and several enhancements to ensure a more modular, standardised product platform.

The four-voltage Prima 6000 enabled Alstom to perfect a new traction package incorporating 6·5 kV IGBT inverters, which under 3 kV DC operation are capable of receiving power via a 3 kV bus rather than 1·8 kV. The supply voltage does not have to be reduced, providing a greater power output. The Prima II is rated at between 4·2 MW and 6·4 MW, depending on customer requirements and the number of supply voltages.

Whereas the Prima I was equipped with a single drawbar connecting the bogie to the locomotive body for freight operation up to 140 km/h, with provision to add a second for speeds up to 200 km/h, all versions of the Prima II will be equipped with double drawbars. The interchangeability of 140 km/h and 200 km/h bogies will be tested using the Prima 6000 prototype during three weeks of trials scheduled to take place this August in conjunction with French railway testing agency AEF.

Supplied for the SNCF BB 436000, SNCB Class 13 and CFL Class 3000 designs, Alstom's 200 km/h bogie sees regular operation at this speed on high speed infrastructure between Leuven and Ans in Belgium, and has been proven at speeds up to 220 km/h.

The Prima II bodyshell incorporates the crashworthiness provisions of Prima I. The overhang has been reduced by increasing the distance between bogie centres to mirror the dimensions of the BB 436000 design.

* CAPTION: Alstom is currently delivering Prima electric locos for several customers, including leasing company CB Rail (left) and SNCF's Transilien suburban services (right).
* CAPTION: The Prima II design features a more streamlined bodyshell than the current Prima I family.
