Algeria Budgets $5 Billion for Rail Upgrades

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Algeria spends $5 bln to upgrade railways

ALGIERS, April 1 (Reuters) - Algeria will spend $5 billion in the next five years to renovate its rail network and link it to neighbours Tunisia and Morocco, the state railway company said on Saturday.

OPEC member Algeria has launched a five-year plan worth $80 billion to boost economic growth and generate revenue to rebuild a society torn by a decade-long Islamic uprising in which 200,000 people were killed and $20 billion in danage was caused.

"We have already started our program to renovate our rail network," Societe Nationale de Transport Ferrovier (SNCF) general manager Abdelhamid Laalamia told state radio.

"$2 billion has already been spent and we still have $5 billion. We will build a high speed network, and purchase equipment," he added.

Laalamia said international companies including U.S. Bechtel, Bouygues Construction, part of French conglomerate Bouygues , France's Vinci , Italian Astaldi and Spanish OHL are competing to win the high speed network contract.

"The results of the bids will be known at the end of June 2006," Laalamia said.

SNCF will also purchase 30 high speed trains, each with capacity of 400 passengers, before the end of this year.

"Siemens , Alstom , Bombardier Inc. and others are in the first line of competition to provide the equipment," Laalamia said.

The SNCF general manager said that Algeria will also link its rail network to neighbors Tunisia and Morocco.

"We already have a line linking our western city Oran to the Moroccan border. And we agreed with our Tunisian friends to link Annaba to Tunisia's city Tabarqa," Laalamia said.

New Wireless System for Algeria
30 October 2006
Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires (SNTF), the national railway of Algeria, is installing a new wireless system which will enable train drivers, station controllers and other railway employees to communicate with each other. SNTF will be the first railway in Africa to adopt Nortel’s new global GSM-R standard. GSM-R has been chosen for the newly opened railway from China to Tibet. Nortel also supplies the British, French, Italian and German rail systems.

Posted: 31-03-2007

Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd (Huawei), a leader in providing next generation telecommunications network solutions for operators around the world, has announced that Algeria Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires (SNTF) has selected Huawei’s GSM-R solution for the construction of the Tabia-Mecheria railway communication system.

Tabia-Mecheria line is an important main passenger transport stem in Algeria with 220 kilometres of rail tracks. Under the contract, Huawei will provide GSM-R network design and engineering services to SNTF.


Huawei’s GSM-R solution can meet ETCS LEVEL-2 requirements and possesses the capability to support ETCS LEVEL-3. After construction is completed, Tabia-Mecheria line will be the first modern railway in Algeria to be equipped with GSM-R technologies.

“Huawei has invested continuously for ten years in GSM-R technology, and we are delighted to construct the GSM-R system for SNTF. Huawei will make a positive contribution to the rail communications industry in Algeria through the supply of abundant rail communication services,” said Tian Feng, President, Huawei Technologies Middle East and North Africa.

Since 1996 Huawei has been investing in the research and development of GSM-R technologies and was awarded the first commercial GSM-R contract in China by Daqin railway in 2003. While Huawei was the first to introduce GPRS technologies to railway application, it has also introduced highly reliable, next generation core network and ALL-IP platforms to GSM-R.

Today, Huawei stands of one of the major suppliers of end-to-end GSM-R solutions. Huawei is committed to improving the security and stability of each single network element according to the special requirements of railway mobile communication, and adopting disaster recovery solutions, such as softswitch and backup ************, in core network designs.

Huawei also offered its advanced technology for Shanghai Maglev Railway, adopting the latest sophicticated solutions, such as handle handover algorithm, GPRS applications and Doppler frequency shift cancellation technology under a demanding high-speed environment (430KM), to ensure excellent performance at high speed.



Huawei’s innovative GSM-R solution follows the EIRENE standard recommended by the Union Internationale des Chemins de Fer (International Union of Railways, UIC) and can supply various kinds of customer-oriented rail communication services, such as Shunting, Train-end Information Transport, Running Number, and Multi-locomotive Traction.

Thanks to GSM-R’s excellent compatibility, Huawei is active in working together with nearly all major global signaling suppliers and makes an positive contribution to applications of GSM-R systems around the world.

Algeria to invest more than 18 bln eur in rail network over 20 years
04.18.07,


ALGIERS (Thomson Financial) - Algeria will invest more than 18 bln eur over 20 years to develop its rail network, extending it to 6,553 kilometers including 1,776 km of double track, the Algerian government announced.

The current network, inherited largely from French colonial times, is 4,300 km in length and suffers 'many inadequacies related to obsolescence of operating systems and organizational maladjustment to national economic needs, the government said in an official statement.

The investment plans envisage 3,553 km of electrified new lines with signalling and telecommunications. Less than 5 pct of goods and passengers currently move by rail in Algeria, according to a statement issued by a government panel

SNTF is also buying new "Flirt"-trains from Swiss manufacturer Stadler. They are meant for suburban services around Algiers.




The SNTF will procure 64 four-unit FLIRT (Fast Light Innovative Regional Train) railcars, an order worth approximately 600 million Swiss Francs. Delivery will begin in the second half of 2008 and will go until the end of 2010. The FLIRT for the SNTF is an electric (25 kV/50 Hz) 4-unit railcar with standing room for up to 1000 passengers and 136 seats. This FLIRT has only a 2nd class for suburban rail use. In order to handle the large passenger volume in Algiers, up to 4 FLIRTs can be coupled together, enabling the transportation of up to 4000 passengers. For the rapid exchange of passengers, the FLIRT has 8 doors on each side. The maximum speed is 120 km/h. The FLIRT is distinguished by its excellent acceleration capacity of 1.2 m/s2. The FLIRTs will be put into operation on the Algiers suburban railway network.
