Alstom signs a frame agreement to extend Cital’s activities and produce locally Coradia regional and intercity trains for Algeria

Alstom, EMA (Entreprise Métro d'Alger), Ferrovial and SNTF (Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires) today signed a frame agreement to extend the activities of the joint venture Cital [1] to include the assembly and maintenance of regional and intercity trains, in addition to its current focus on Citadis trams.

The agreement was signed by Yacine Bendjaballah, Managing Director of SNTF, Aomar Hadbi, CEO of EMA, Salah Melek Managing Director of Ferrovial, and Henri Bussery, Managing Director of Alstom Algeria, at the CIHN (Comité Intergouvernemental de Haut Niveau Algéro-Français) in Algiers. The signature took place in the presence of the French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, and the Algerian Prime Minister, Abdelmalek Sellal.

The new agreement also includes SNTF’s entry into the Cital joint venture as a shareholder [2]. SNTF intends to order 98 Coradia trains from Cital, based on Alstom’s Coradia Polyvalent in its bimodal version. The acquisition is part of the operator’s plan to extend its rail network from 3,000 km to 12,500 km by 2025, own a larger fleet able to circulate on various types of lines, and offer an enhanced quality of service to its passengers.

The Cital site in Annaba, currently dedicated to the assembly and maintenance of Citadis trams, will be extended from the current 46,000 m2 to 190,000 m2. It will house an engineering department, new production lines, and a maintenance depot. It will have the capacity to produce one Coradia train per month.

The new activity will progressively create up to around 270 direct jobs at the Annaba site, currently employing more than 240, and several hundred indirect ones. Alstom will provide training and will transfer skills, know-how and technology to Cital’s employees for the production and maintenance of the new trains.

“This signature represents a very significant agreement with our partners in CITAL, EMA and Ferrovial, with whom we have carried out successful tramway projects in several cities in Algeria and now also SNTF, who will join the Joint Venture. Cital’s extended activity will certainly contribute to the emergence of a railway hub in Annaba, reinforcing Algeria’s industrial sector while offering a larger number of people the opportunity to travel via reliable, safe and environmental-friendly modes of transport. This new milestone is an important step in Alstom’s global strategy and efforts to be closer to its customers,” said Gian Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice President of Alstom Middle East and Africa.

More than 300 Alstom employees are based in Algeria. The company has delivered 98 Citadis trams to the cities of Algiers, Constantine and Oran and is presently working with Cital on delivering new Citadis tramway solutions to the cities of Ouargla, Mostaganem,Setif, and Constantine for its second tramway line. In July 2015, Alstom was awarded acontract by SNTF to supply 17 Coradia Polyvalent intercity trains [3].

[1] Alstom (49%), Ferrovial (41%) and EMA (10%)

[2] SNTF takes 10% while Ferrovial holds 31%

[3] Designed, produced and tested in Reichshoffen in France

The expansion would create up to 270 direct jobs, in addition to the 240 currently employed at the Annaba facility.

The electrification is planned for this line like some others existing lines. But no news for now.

Alstom to deliver 17 Coradia Polyvalent trains to SNTF



Alstom has signed a contract with Algeria’s Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires (SNTF) to supply 17 Coradia Polyvalent inter-city trains. The contract is worth around 200 million euros. The first train will be delivered in January 2018.



© Alstom Transport/ Design & Styling

This investment is part of SNTF’s programme to modernise and extend its network. The trains will link Algiers to destinations such as Oran, Annaba, Constantine and Béchar.

"We are delighted that SNTF has placed its confidence in Alstom. Already adopted by SNCF and the French regions since 2009, Coradia Polyvalent is the ideal choice to meet Algeria's transport needs.*Algerian passengers can be sure that they are travelling on trains with the latest technical innovations, combining comfort, performance and protection of the environment,"*said Gian-Luca Erbacci, Senior Vice-President of Alstom Transport in the Middle East and Africa.

The Coradia Polyvalent for Algeria is a dual-mode train (diesel and electric, 25 kV) able to travel at 160 km/h. With a total length of 110 metres, the train has six carriages and provides capacity for 265 passengers.

Coradia Polyvalent meets the needs of SNTF and its passengers. It is adapted to the environmental conditions of the country (sand, external temperatures) and has a highly efficient air conditioning system. The train also has a fully low floor for easy access and movement on board. Accessible to everyone, particularly passengers with reduced mobility, it respects the latest TSI[1]*PRM standards. Finally, the train’s design and highly efficient motors eliminate noise and vibration for unparalleled comfort.

The teams at Alstom’s site in Reichshoffen, France will design, produce and test the 17 trains. Five other French sites will contribute to the project: Saint-Ouen for the design, Le Creusot for the bogies, Ornans for the motors and alternators, Tarbes for the traction chains and Villeurbanne for the on-board electronics and passenger information system.

Alstom’s Coradia range benefits from 30 years of experience. Its 3,000 trains have travelled over four billion kilometres.

Siemens to automate railway network in Algiers metropolitan area

Largest-ever railway automation order for Siemens – 340 million euros
Expansion of passenger and freight transport
Rail engineering permits speeds of up to 160 km/h und increases throughput
Siemens is to supply the signaling, safety and control systems for the 140 km long-distance rail network in the Algiers metropolitan area. The order will be carried out by ESTEL RA, a joint venture of state-run Algerian Railways SNTF (Société Nationale des Transports Ferroviaires) and Siemens. "As rail automation market leaders, we are supplying state-of-the-art technology to Algeria: cross-border rail services at up to 160 km/h for passengers and freight, shorter headways and greater line utilization", says Jochen Eickholt, CEO of the Mobility Division at Siemens. The order volume for Siemens amounts to some 340 million euros and is the biggest rail automation order that the company has ever won.
With over three million inhabitants, Algiers is the country's largest city and, at the same time, Algeria's most important transport hub. Expanding the railway network is designed to shift traffic from road to rail, thus reducing the daily congestion in the greater Algiers area and improving the mobility of the city's inhabitants. Network commissioning is planned for the end of 2019. The railway network includes 18 stations and is designed for both goods and passenger transport. It is to be equipped with signaling, safety and control systems, as well as shunting and telecommunications technology. Siemens is supplying the first expansion stage of the ETCS European Train Control System. This permits speeds of up to 160 km/h and enables trains to travel at shorter intervals, thus increasing so-called throughput. Siemens is supplying automated shunting equipment for the freight line which will optimize goods handling with modern cargo technology. In addition, the Algerian rail operator personnel will receive training in how to operate and maintain the new system.
The Algerian government is investing in the country's infrastructure as part of a five-year economic stimulus package. One focus is on the expansion and construction of the public transportation system. In recent years, Siemens has already provided ETCS signaling systems for the mainline railway links from from Boughezoul to M'Sila and to Tissemsilt, Mecheria to El Bayadh, Djelfa to Laghouat, and Beni Mansour to Bejaia, as well as for Algeria's all-important rail freight line between Senia and the Port of Arzew.
