The launch of a project for the supply of electric locomotives to Ukraine can create more than 7,000 jobs in the country in the long term, the French concern Alstom has said.
“The creation of new jobs will be one of the main positive consequences of the contract, which will be signed in the near future. According to our estimates, more than 7,000 jobs will be created or retained in Ukraine thanks to the electric locomotive business in the long term,” the company told Interfax -Ukraine.
Asked about the delivery times and conditions of locomotive maintenance, Alstom said that this issue is currently being resolved with customers and cannot yet be brought up for discussion.
According to representatives of Alstom, the company is looking for local clients in Ukraine, including among private businesses.
