Alstom first arrived in Saudi Arabia in 1951 when it installed the first gas turbine. Since then, the world leader in mobility has been a key factor in the development of the region’s transport infrastructure. Today, the company remains the Kingdom’s leading provider of sustainable mobility solutions through its investments in rail transport systems.

Recently, Saudi Arabia, one of the first countries in the region, announced its commitment to achieve zero emissions by 2060. Sustainable mobility infrastructure such as rail transport will play a key role in realizing a country’s sustainable development goals as it aims to create a more sustainable future for its citizens and region.
