The locomotives will be maintained at Ferromex depots located in Torreon, Chihuahua and Guadalajara. This project is expected to generate 150 direct jobs. 

Rodelmar Ocampo, Managing Director of Alstom Mexico, said:

“We are honored that Ferromex, for whom we are maintaining more than half of its locomotives, is renewing its trust in Alstom’s services. This award also illustrates Alstom’s commitment to support Mexico’s mobility projects for more efficient, more reliable, more sustainable transport network”
