Iran: €3b German Finance on the Way

German finance worth €3 billion ($3.5 billion) for a railroad project in Iran will soon be finalized, a deputy roads and urban development minister announced.

"We are on the verge of finalizing a €3 billion foreign finance deal with a German company with €1.7 billion ($2 billion) of the funds related to projects belonging to the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development," Asghar Fakhrieh-Kashan also told ILNA.

Iranian officials have been holding negotiations with Germany for a foreign finance deal in recent months, but have yet to divulge any details.

According to Fakhrieh-Kashan, a German delegation will soon travel to Iran to finalize the finance deal.

"The funds will be used to electrify the Tehran-Isfahan railroad, purchase seven electric locomotives and transport the purchased goods," he said.

"There have also been talks for more than a year about a $10 billion foreign finance deal with Japan."

The deputy minister noted that the Japanese have shown interest in a $9 billion Iranian project to build two railroads that connect the northeastern and northwestern points of Tehran to its southwestern and southeastern points respectively.

"The project, which is predicted to be completed in seven years, will provide an underground exit for Tehran that will solve its traffic problem for good," he said.

According to Fakhrieh-Kashan, the share of Roads Ministry from the total of $55 billion worth of foreign finance approved in the Sixth Five-Year Development Plan (2017-22) will be about $12 billion.

Iran: Where World Rail Industry Goes to Feast

W ith most sanctions lifted, Iran is going all-in on its potential to become a transport hub in the heart of Eurasia, returning the country to its traditional position as a vital link between East and West.

However, Iranís transportation dreams have a major problem in the current reality: Decades of sanctions have left the countryís rail lines archaic and in disrepair.

To fix this, Iran is devoting 1% of its oil and gas sales to rail development, amounting to a roughly $25 billion initiative to revitalize its rail network and add 10,000 kilometers of new rail lines by 2025ócreating a yearly demand for roughly 8,000-10,000 new wagons in the process.

Iranís rail ambitions are currently a shining beacon for rail engineering and rolling stock firms from all over the world, who are lined up at the gates of Tehran licking their chops in gleeful anticipation for the infrastructure building melee that is about to begin, reads an article published in Forbes on Tuesday. Below is the full text:


China was Iranís economic lifeline during the period of heavy sanctions and now Iran is a fundamental link in the countryís Belt and Road Initiativeóa program of such importance to Beijing that it is now written into the Chinese Constitution.

As part of a goal to boost China-Iran trade to $600 billion per year within the next decade, China is working hard to reinvigorate Iranís railroad sector.

In February, the first freight train from China arrived in Tehran and a few months later, Chinaís Export-Import Bank inked a $1.5-billion deal to provide funds to electrify the rail line from Tehran to Mashhad, along with promises to invest $9 billion in over two dozen other projects in other industries, including electricity, petrochemicals, metals and oil and gas.

The Tehran-Mashhad line is one of the biggest developments in Iranís emerging rail menagerie. This 926-kilometer railroad is expected to be extended into a 3,200-kilometer New Silk Road behemoth, that will go all the way through Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan to Urumqi, the capital of Chinaís Xinjiang Province. This line is also slated to link up with Iranís western railroad network that leads to Turkey and Europe beyond.


A consortium of companies from Germany has already vouched $3.5 billion for rail development projects in Iran, which consist of a new signaling system for the Tehran-Tabriz railroad, new electric and diesel wagons, and high-speed connection lines.

Last October, Siemens signed two deals to supply 50 diesel-electric locomotives and 70 electric locomotives for the soon to be revitalized Tehran-Mashhad railroad.


In July, Italyís state rail company Ferrovie dello Stato signed a $1.37 billion deal with Iran to build a high-speed railroad between the cities of Qom and Arak.


Not to be outdone by its European counterparts, Franceís Alstom signed a joint venture to set up a factory to construct 1,000 railroad cars in Iran. While in 2015, the French architecture firm AREP committed to a $7 million project that would see them revitalize three Iranian railroad stations.


Not wanting to be left out of the Eurasian infrastructure game, Japan has signed deals with Iran to provide $10 billion in funding for railroad-related ventures, including two railroads to link together northern and southern Tehran.


Transmashholding, Russiaís largest rail equipment manufacturer, recently signed a $2.5 billion deal with Iran to set up a joint venture to produce rolling stock for the countryís ever-growing rail network.

This is while in 2015, Russian Railways signed a $1 billion deal to electrify and put up the signaling apparatus on a section of rail line between Garmsar and Gorgan.


Tehranís rail ambitions have direct synergy with the development strategies of surrounding countries, as Chinaís Belt and Road Initiative, India and Russiaís International North-South Transport Corridor, Kazakhstanís Nurly Zhol, India and Japanís Asia-Africa Growth Corridor, as well as Azerbaijanís endeavors to build up its transportation economy to diversify away from reliance on oil and gas all overlap in Iran.

By revolutionizing its railroad sector, Iran essentially puts itself back on the map as the central hub of Eurasia.
