SOUTH AFRICA: Alstom's Lapa factory in Brazil has produced the first bodyshell for the 600 X'Trapolis Mega commuter electric multiple-units ordered by Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa.

The stainless steel bodyshell is based on a design supplied to São Paulo, and has been completed seven months after financial close of the €4bn contract between PRASA and the Gibela joint venture of Alstom (61%), New Africa Rail (9%) and Ubumbano Rail (30%) on April 26.

The first 20 EMUs are being built at Lapa, where South African teams are being trained ahead of the opening of a purpose-built plant in Dunnottar, 50 km east of Johannesburg. The first complete unit is scheduled to be shipped to South Africa by the end of 2015, and will then undergo an intensive testing programme before entering revenue service by June 2016.

Gibela now employs 78 people, and 16 South African railway engineers are almost half-way through an 18-month training programme at Alstom sites in Europe.

Alstom’s Sesto plant in Italy is to supply the traction motors for the 120 km/h EMUs, with French input to include the 1 067 mm gauge bogies from Le Creusot, cabs from Reichshoffen and other components from Ornans, Tarbes, Villeurbanne and Saint-Ouen.

PRASA unveils first new long-haul passenger locomotive



The next three years will see an influx of new long-haul passenger locomotives enter service in South Africa after the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) unveiled Africa’s first 4000-series diesel locomotive at Cape Town Station on Monday.

The new high-powered locomotive – the first of 70 – marked a “turning point” for the State-owned entity as it hoped to reintroduce services along a number of corridors that were mothballed on the back of ageing infrastructure and rolling stock.

The first AFRO 4000 locomotive, manufactured by Spain-based Vossloh, would undergo three months of testing before starting operations in March next year.

The locomotives would bolster services for long-distance and regional services, including Shosholoza Meyl, Premier Classe and Metrorail.

The group, which currently operated six corridors, planned to reopen another four, with a priority on the Mafikeng to Johannesburg route.

Ten of the new locomotives would be based in the Eastern Cape, while the others would be focused on long-distance mainline passenger services and regional services.

PRASA’s Metrorail services currently carried more than two-million passengers daily, with another one-million transported through its mainline passenger service each year.

Mofi explained that, at its peak, 120 mainline passenger trains a week were operated, but owing to the ageing and legacy fleet, this had been cut to the current 42 a week.

But on the other hand, www.seat61.com announced last week that several Shosholoza Meyl and Premier Classe services were just withdrawn. Go figure...

Prasa cuts mainline services
Tuesday, December 23, 2014



PASSENGER Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) has announced further drastic cuts to its mainline train timetable even as it pushes ahead with a €250m deal to buy 70 new locomotives from Vossloh

Citing "financial strains," Prasa says its long-distance passenger train operators Shosholoza Meyl and Premier Classe have each dropped two loss-making train services. Shosholoza Meyl trains would no longer run between Johannesburg and Messina on the Zimbabwe border and between Johannesburg and Komatipoort on the Mozambique border. The semi-luxury Premier Classe train will no longer run between Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth while a monthly service between Johannesburg and Durban has also been cancelled.

Just seven Shosholoza Meyl routes and the Premier Classe route between Johannesburg and Cape Town have survived the cuts, although the number of trains running each week on the routes between Johannesburg and Durban and Port Elizabeth have also been reduced.

Prasa said cost coverage on certain routes was below 20%

Arup to draw-up PRASA station master plans
12 Jan 2015



SOUTH AFRICA: Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa has appointed Arup SA to develop master plans for the potential redevelopment of land around its major stations in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town. The ambition is to support regeneration by creating transport hubs with retail, office, social, health and leisure facilities.

‘The idea is to integrate the station’s activities with those of the city – to draw in pedestrians, taxi commuters, long-distance bus passengers and commuters – and create a transport hub, not just a railway station’, according to Nico Venter, leader of Integrated Urbanism at Arup SA. ‘From this, urban regeneration can flow outwards into the city and unlock development.’

In contrast to previous redevelopment proposals, Venter said the plans would not be for ‘a general bulk massing approach, which adds density to a station without any understanding of the dynamics of the area.’ Instead the project will review the needs of rail and other transport users, as well as retail and commerce, to develop the land ‘as a long-term investment, while regenerating the city.’

PRASA starts testing new long-haul passenger loco


The country was one step closer to delivering a multimodal, multifacet, integrated, accessible and reliable transport system as the first of 70 Spain-manufactured AFRO 4000-series locomotives is tested for power and functionality.

Following the unveiling of the long-haul passenger locomotive in Cape Town last month, the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) hosted Transport Minister Dipuo Peters, PRASA chairperson Dr Popo Molefe, PRASA CEO Lucky Montana and Members of the Portfolio Committee on Transport on an AFRO4001 locomotive-hauled Premier Classe train trip to Stellenbosch on Monday.

The showcase by PRASA was meant to demonstrate the new locomotives’ resilience, strength, reliability and speed.

Over R50-billion had been injected into the manufacture of 3 600 passenger coaches – equating to 600 trains – with another R3.5-billion set aside for the manufacture of high power, efficient, fast and reliable locomotives.

Minister receives new batch of PRASA locos

Moving along nicely:

When a new batch of diesel locomotives was docked off the ship at the Cape Town harbour on Wednesday, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters walked towards the Afro4001 loco and kissed it.

The Minister then told journalists that the delivery of the locos was an exciting moment for government and the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) because they would go a long way in reducing travel time, providing comfort, reliability and improving efficiency.

The roll-out of the locos are expected to contribute to the rail operator’s plan of modernising the country’s rail infrastructure, including rolling stock, signal upgrade, infrastructure rehabilitation, station modernisation, new locomotives for long distance passenger services

All in all, 70 high-tech locomotives are expected to be delivered over the next few months, and they will be made up of 50 Euro Dual electro-diesel and 20 Euro 4000 diesel locomotives.

As they arrive, PRASA will take them to the track to test them until March, and thereafter, the locos will start operating from April this year.

The Minister said the Afro4001 diesel locomotive has already been tested and on one test-run, it pulled up to 50 coaches over a notable distance.

The trains will run along six long distance corridors, including the Johannesburg to Cape Town route.

As soon as PRASA receives new stock during the first half of the year, these will be increased to 10 corridors.

The Minister said government was investing R172.3 billion in the next 10 years to fast track the modernisation of public passenger transport to rail, from which R3.5 billion has gone into the manufacturing of 70 locomotives.

About R51 billion will go towards the manufacturing of 600 new trains for Metrorail, the Minister said.

Molefe, meanwhile, said the 70 locomotives were being manufactured in Spain, and added that PRASA would receive the first 20 of these within the next six months.

Rolls Royce secures €100m order to supply 232 loco engines for TFR



Consortium China North Rail (CNR) Rolling Stock South Africa (RSSA), led by Chinese locomotive manufacturer CNR Dalian, has ordered 232 MTU Series 4000 engines from Rolls-Royce Power Systems for State-owned Transnet Freight Rail’s (TFR’s) new freight locomotives.

The €100-million order would see the delivery of Rolls Royce subsidiary MTU’s “most powerful” locomotive engines between 2015 and 2017.

CNR RSSA was one of the four companies selected to supply TFR with 1 064 locomotives as part of the parastatal’s R50-billion locomotive procurement project.

CNR RSSA would supply 232 diesel locomotives at a cost of R7.8-billion, while China South Rail (CSR) Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive would supply 359 electric locomotives at a contract value of R14.6-billion, excluding hedging and escalation costs.

Bombardier Transportation South Africa would supply 240 electric locomotives at a base cost of R10.4-billion and General Electric South Africa Technologies would supply 233 diesel locomotives at a base cost of R7.1-billion

The first 20 of the 3 300 kW, type 20V 4000 R63L engines, produced at Rolls-Royce Power Systems’ headquarters in Friedrichshafen, Germany, would be delivered directly to CNR, while subsidiary MTU South Africa was planning additional assembly capacity to accept the balance of the engines for final assembly, testing and preparation.

http://www.engineeringnews.co.za/art...tfr-2015-01-26


Rolls-Royce is to power freight trains in South Africa as part of one the biggest ever infrastructure projects in the country.
Rolls has agreed a €100m (£75m) to deal to build 232 engines for Chinese locomotive manufacturer CNR Dalian.
CNR is at the centre of one of South Africa's biggest ever infrastructure projects as the country looks to overhaul its rail network and fleet of freight locomotives.
Rolls will supply the project with MTU Series 4000 engines, they will be produced in Germany with delivery of the engines between 2015 and 2017.
Ulrich Dohle, chief executive of Rolls-Royce power systems, said: "We are proud to be supplying MTU's most powerful locomotive engine for one of the largest transport infrastructure projects in South Africa."

Use of high speed diesel engines in Africa has not been overly successful, Next door in Namibia four Chinese CKD8C have already been scrapped, and currently only 2 out of 17 SDD6 are serviceable

Choice of an 1800 rpm engine by Transnet must be a political decision, or made by apparatchiks within the parastatal with no practical motive power knowledge or experience

MTU are fine in first world applications (especially if the engine is on a fully maintained lease), where lightweight engines are a necessity, and locomotive maintenance is generally in the hands of specialist contractors. But to purchase this type of engine outright for a third world operation that maintains its locos in-house beggars belief

When the pricing was announced following the PR splurge naming the winning bidders back in March 2014, it appeared that Transnet was prepared to pay at least a US$200k per loco premium for the CNR loco over the price they paid for the 233 GE ES40Aci ordered at the same time, yet the 20V4000 is around 60% of the cost of the 12 cylinder GEVO used in the ES40Aci

R13bn in US, Canadian development-finance support for SA locomotives purchase

State-owned freight logistics group Transnet confirmed on Monday that it had received the backing of leading American and Canadian development funding agencies for its purchase of more than 500 diesel and electric locomotives from General Electric and Bombardier Transportation respectively.

The support had been extended in the form of two separate funding agreements, worth a combined value of R13-billion and backed by leading South African financial institutions.

The Export-Import Bank of the US extended a R6-billion guarantee for 293 General Electric locomotives, the majority of which would be built at Transnet Engineering’s Koedoespoort factory, north of Pretoria.

The funds raised as a result of the guarantee were derived from Absa/Barclays (R2.25-billion), Standard Bank (R2.25-billion) and Old Mutual (R1.5-billion).

The second agreement involved a R6.99-billion loan facility for the Bombardier locomotives, which would be assembled at Transnet Engineering’s Durban facility.

In what was Export Development Canada’s first-ever rand-denominated loan, the agency provided R5.24-billion, with South Africa’s Investec Bank contributing the R1.75-billion balance.

Transnet CEO Brian Molefe said the Ex-Im Bank-backed loan was a 14-year facility and would be drawn over a three-year period in line with the delivery schedule for the locomotives. The Export Development Canada-Investec loan was a 13-year facility.

The funding had arisen as a direct result of contracts awarded by Transnet in March last year as part of a R50-billion acquisition of 1 064 locomotives from North American and Chinese suppliers. The programme made up the lion’s share of what was dubbed the “biggest rail recapitalisation programme in South Africa’s history”, with around 1 300 locomotives to be purchased.

The purchase was split four ways, with General Electric South Africa Technologies and CNR Rolling Stock South Africa, to supply 233 and 232 diesel locomotives respectively, and CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive and Bombardier Transportation South Africa to supply 359 and 240 electric locomotives apiece.

South Africa's Transet and CSR complete 95 electric locomotives

South African rail operator Transnet and China South Rail (CSR) have completed the construction of the first batch of 95 electric locomotives.
A total of 85 of these locomotives were built in Transnet's engineering and manufacturing facilities in Koedeospoort, while the remaining ten were built at CSR's manufacturing facilities in China.

South Africa President Jacob Zuma said: "The purchase and building of the locomotives is part of Transnet's more than R300bn ($24.91bn) commitment to invest in South Africa's transport and logistics infrastructure, the Market Demand Strategy.

"For Transnet, the drive to modernise the fleet is aimed at improving reliability of service and customer satisfaction. For governments, this is a significant step towards our crucial goal of moving cargo from road to rail."
The acquisition of 95 electric locomotives is part of Transnet's long-term fleet renewal programme aimed at increasing volumes while reducing the average age of its locomotive fleet.

In March last year, Transnet entered into a $4.26bn agreement to buy 599 electric and 465 diesel locomotives from General Electric, China North Rail, CSR and Bombardier Transportation.

Transnet Freight Rail will run 85 of the locomotives on the manganese line to Port Elizabeth and the iron ore line between Sishen and ArcelorMittal's plants in Newcastle and Biljkor.

In March, Transnet raised $1.1bn in funding for this locomotive acquisition programme from funders and financial institutions, including Barclays Africa, Investec, Standard Bank, Old Mutual and Export Development Canada.
