By Aynur Karimova

Baku and Tehran are planning to launch a passenger train between Azerbaijan's Nakhchivan city and Iranian city of Mashhad.

This intention was sounded at a meeting between Javid Gurbanov, the Head of Azerbaijan Railways CJSC and Abbas Hajfathaliha, a member of the Board of the Iran Railways in Nakhchivan on March 3.

During the meeting, the sides discussed launching a passenger train on the Nakhchivan-Julfa-Tabriz-Tehran-Mashhad route, and finding sources for funding the construction of the Rasht-Astara railway, Azerbaijan Railways reported.

The Azerbaijani and Iranian railways agreed to conduct inspection on the Julfa station in March, where a point for replacement of wheelpairs is located, consider and discuss the possibility of aligning the system of sale of railway tickets of the two countries.

The railway companies' next meeting will be held in April.

Commenting on details of launching the passenger train between Nakhchivan and Mashhad, Mansour Airom, Iran’s Consul General in Nakhchivan, told Trend that this train will run twice a week.

He believes that the railway companies' meeting on March 3 was aimed at laying a ground for inaugurating the plan of Azerbaijan and Iran to deepen cooperation in the railway transport section.

This cooperation was envisaged in a Framework Agreement between the Azerbaijani and Iranian governments on the coordination of railways of the two countries, which was signed by Iranian Minister of Transportation Abbas Akhoundi and Azerbaijan's Economy and Industry Minister Shahin Mustafayev during President Ilham Aliyev's Tehran visit on February 23.

Currently, Azerbaijan and Iran are focused on expanding economic ties in various fields, including industry, agriculture, energy, alternative energy, and transportation.

Iran's export to Azerbaijan during the first half of 2015 decreased 55.36 percent to $42.52 million year-on-year. Azerbaijan's export to Iran also decreased 67.11 percent to $11.16 million during that period.

Aeroexpress contract revised as EMUs go to Azerbaijan and Georgia
26 May 2016









INTERNATIONAL: Stadler Rail confirmed on May 26 that its contract to supply Kiss electric multiple-units to Aeroexpress had now been revised to reflect the financial difficulties which the Russian airport shuttle operator has faced as result of the fall in oil and gas prices, the imposition of international sanctions on Russia and the subsequent decline in the value of the rouble.

The contract signed in February 2013 had covered eight six-car and 16 four-car double-deck 1 520 mm gauge EMUs, but this became unaffordable. Stadler, Swiss Export Risk Insurance and the banks financing the deal have now reached an agreement to reduce the number of trainsets to be delivered to Aeroexpress, provide a grace period and extend the repayment period. The new financing plan is guaranteed by Swiss Export Risk Insurance and Gazprombank

Stadler delivers final Kiss EMUs to Azerbaijan
Friday, June 17, 2016



STADLER Minsk has completed delivery of an order for five Kiss double-deck EMUs for Azerbaijan Railways (ADY), with the final two sets completing their journey to Baku this week

The 3kV dc trains were originally destined for Russian operator Aeroexpress, which awarded Stadler a contract for 24 trains in February 2013 but subsequently reduced its order to 11 sets due to the weakening of the Russian Rouble. In April Georgian Railways (GR) agreed to take on four of the trains originally destined for Aeroexpress

<snip>

The railway line will initially transport five million tonnes of cargo when it is launched in the near future. Last November, Iran and Russia signed an agreement worth 1.2 billion euros to electrify a train line, linking north-central Iran to the northeastern border with Turkmenistan.

The agreement signed between Russian Railways and the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways (RAI) envisages constructing power stations and overhead power lines along the Garmsar-Sari-Gorgan-Inche Burun route in Iran.

<snip>

The train line, among the first in Iran with a history of 80 years, extends to Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan and links the Central Asia to the Persian Gulf and beyond. The project was also set to be financed by the Russian government and would be implemented in 36 months, which includes manufacturing all electric locomotives inside Iran, electrifying 495 kilometers of railway and building 32 stations and 95 tunnels
