PrimaII prototype no.1 and 2
in use since 2009
20 locomotives delivered as E1400 series
On 20.05.2008, Alstom launched its plans for a new, global locomotive platform; Prima II. That day a scale model was revealed of a 4-axle version for the European freight market. More than a year later, on 03.06.2009, the first 1:1 scale protoype was outstopped and presented; Prima II-1.
In May 2008 Alstom already made public that they already had a first customer for the Prima II, right from the drawing board; the national railways of Morocco (ONCF). They placed an order for twenty such electrics for mixed services.
Until there is more information about the Prima II on this website, one can take a look at its official website: http://www.prima2.transport.alstom.com
