Didier Pfleger, Alstom's Senior Vice President of the Middle East and Africa, said, şehr We are extremely proud to provide our modern power supply system that does not cut cataract to Istanbul and thus help to preserve the beauty of the city. Alstom has long been involved in the development of urban transportation of this enormous city. Al

In the APS system, the energy to the trolley is provided by segmented and ground level power supply rails. The active segments are activated only when the tramway vehicle completely occupies the safety of pedestrians and other road users. Electric energy is taken under the tramway by means of current collector shoes placed in the middle bogie. The APS assists in maintaining the environmental beauty of the city while at the same time guaranteeing the same performance as the catenary system. In 2014, Alstom delivered and commissioned the world's first non-catamaran tramway system in Dubai.

Alstom has long 60 years operating in Turkey, Istanbul metro and trams have provided tools. Alstom signed a contract in 2011 to provide signaling system to 328 km-long Eskişehir-Kütahya-Balıkesir regional line. Alstom's Istanbul office is a regional center for signaling and system projects, and is also the headquarters of the Middle East group.
