The agreement was signed in Paris with the support of the Embassy of Kazakhstan in France between Bakhyt Sultanov, Minister of Trade and Integration, and Andrew DeLeone, Alstom's President for Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.The Memorandum of Understanding focused primarily on the cooperation needed to create a sustainable infrastructure as well as Kazakhstan's transition to a low-carbon economy.

"We agreed to cooperate in promoting Nur-Sultan products in the near and distant abroad. We also plan to continue discussing possible ways to increase the level of localization of production. Currently, the localization of this plant is approximately 40%. This indicator can be increased thanks to Kazakh manufacturers of metal, plastic and electrical products. This will, of course, reduce costs and increase competitiveness," said the Minister of Trade and Integration.

The agreement is seen by Alstom as "proof of its determination to continue to seek opportunities that bring mutual benefit. We look forward to growing local know-how and increasing Kazakhstan's export potential. Alstom enables the decarbonization of mobility throughout the value chain and we welcome the opportunity to accompany our customers on their journey to a carbon-free future," explained Andrew DeLeone.

Alstom is made up of over 950 employees, two joint ventures in Kazakhstan, and impresses with three depots, two plants, and a repair center. The ECZ plant in Nur-Sultan focuses on the production of electric locomotives and the maintenance and production of onboard transformers, and the second KazElectroPrivod (KEP) plant in Almaty produces spot machines.

For Alstom and Transmashholding, 2010 meant the need to conclude an agreement on the development of the ECZ locomotive plant, which was inaugurated in 2012. Alstom (25 %), TMH (25 %), and Kazakh Railways (50 %) owned the joint company. These three companies signed a contract for the delivery of 200 Prima T8 KZ8A locomotives and 95 Prima M4 KZ4AT locomotives. Between 2014 and 2016, 20 Prima KZ4AT locomotives were assembled in France, and in July 2021 Alstom delivered the first Prima M4 KZ4AT passenger locomotive produced in Kazakhstan.
