Alstom - PRASA Project

Alstom, a world leader in rail transport, are embarking on the largest project in their history and we are proud to be the chosen powder coating supplier for the project
thanks to our global scale and outstanding products!

At the end of last year, Alstom signed a contract with the Passenger Rail
Agency of South Africa to supply 600 X’Trapolis Mega commuter trains to replace
the existing outdated infrastructure.

Thanks to AkzoNobel’s previous involvement with Alstom in France and China, we
have been in talks with Alstom in Europe since the project was announced.
AkzoNobel outshone the local competition and proved to be the only supplier
fully compliant with Alstom’s strict criteria.

Our Interpon coatings will protect and decorate handrails, seat parts, luggage
rails, window frames, door frames and some exterior components of 3,600 train
cars over the next ten years!
Our success in this project further highlights AkzoNobel’s truly global scale,
where a customer relationship in one country can open amazing opportunities
halfway across
