Siemens signs Iranian railway memorandum of understanding

http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/b...rstanding.html

RAN: Islamic Republic of Iran Railways and Siemens signed a memorandum of understanding for potential co-operation in the rail sector in Tehran on January 6.

A Siemens spokesman told Railway Gazette the company intends ‘to engage in talks on improving infrastructure in the rail sector as agreed by both parties’, and stressed Siemens was ‘strictly complying’ with legal requirements, particularly in the area of export controls.

Iranian media reports said Siemens could participate in projects including electrification of the Tehran – Mashhad route and the future Tehran – Esfahan fast line, supplying signalling systems, electric locomotives and 500 coaches. Siemens would also provide training services, and would be required to enter into technology transfer agreements with local partners.

In 2008 Siemens and MAPNA signed a technology transfer agreement covering the production of 150 IranRunner diesel locomotives, the first 30 of which were supplied from Germany. However in January 2010 Siemens announced it would withdraw from the Iranian market on the completion of its existing contracts.

President launches Tehran - Mashhad electrification project
08 Feb 2016


President Hassan Rouhani launched work to electrify the 926 km Tehran – Mashhad main line when he visited Mashhad on February 6

IRAN: President Hassan Rouhani ceremonially launched work to electrify the 926 km Tehran – Mashhad main line when he visited the northeastern city on February 6.

Planning for the 25 kV 50 Hz electrification project has been underway since 2012. In June 2014 a contract to install and maintain overhead electrification equipment and procure 70 locomotives was awarded to a consortium of Chinese companies CMC and SU Power and subsidiaries of local industrial group MAPNA. A year later Iran and China finalised an agreement for 85% of the €1·9bn cost of the project to be financed through Chinese loans

Nice. But 14 days, really ? Trains from China reach Europe via Transsib in that
time... This should be cut by at least 50%. Could someone post a schedule ?
It would be interesting to see where time is lost. I would expect at the border
stations, but I'm curious. There are only 2 countries in between (Kazakhstan
and Turkmenistan) so only 3 border crossings. Two breaks of gauge, also...

And, by the way, where did that train enter Iran ? At the existing border station
of Sarakhs, near Mashhad, or at the new one near Gorgan (if it is open already) ?

Tehran – Mashhad capacity increased
09 Mar 2016



IRAN: National railway RAI has completed a €31m project to increase capacity on its 926 km main line between Tehran and Mashhad, with the commissioning of the second phase of its resignalling programme.

Building on the introduction of automatic train protection in January 2015, RAI has installed intermediate signals to split the former station-to-station absolute blocks, permitting the introduction of ‘multi-section’ working and reducing headways from 20 min to around 7 min

China-Iran link:



Quote:
The 10,500km journey from Yiwu City in eastern China through Kazakhstan, Kyrghyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan was sluggish; but when the first Chinese train pulled into Tehran station after a 14-day haul, Iranian officials hailed a great leap forward. “We’re becoming the global hub between east and west,” waxed one minister. By April, when the new trans-Kazakh railroad opens fully, Iranian executives hope to have cut the journey time to China, currently its biggest trade partner, to just eight days—a month less than the sea route takes. Should Turkey get on board, the route might even replace the Suez Canal as a primary Chinese and Iranian route to Europe. Iranian companies will no longer be limited to an 80m-strong local market, President Hassan Rohani’s advisers anticipate, but will be connected to the EU’s 500m.

Other rail links are coming down the line, too. Within six months, Abbas Akhoundi, Iran’s British-trained transport minister, will open a track to Afghanistan’s mines, and ship minerals to India via a revamped south-eastern port, Chabahar, bypassing Pakistan. Within two years, Iran will have built a bridge over the Shatt-al-Arab river into Iraq and into the Fertile Crescent, he says. Fresh track will open the way through Azerbaijan to Russia and the Central Asian republics. “When we were inward we had poor cross-border links,” says Mr Akhoundi. “If we want to be outward-looking we need to improve them accordingly.” Iran also plans to more than double its internal 10,000km rail network over the next decade and replace the rolling stock that trundles at 90kph with high-speed trains on electrified lines. Once complete, the 420km journey to Isfahan would take 90 minutes, and the 920 km trip to Mashhad less than six hours.

Comfortingly, railways seem to be one sector where reformists and hardliners suspend their infighting. Billboards in Tehran proclaim the Supreme Leader’s passion for trains. The Revolutionary Guards favour outreach to China, and like the prospect that the government might devote its energies to the transport industry, rather than offering foreigners contracts in the oilfields they consider their cash cow. Despite its conservative flavour, the last parliament extended lavish benefits to private investment in transport, including a ten-year tax break.

The hitch, of course, is finance. In Iran’s sixth five-year plan, now awaiting parliamentary approval, Mr Akhoundi wants to spend $28 billion on railways, $20 billion on roads, $50 billion on upgrading the country’s Shah-era air fleet and $7 billion on airports (including an extension to Tehran’s main airport, Imam Khomeini, so that the largest modern airliners can land there). Yet given the low oil price, his government can barely pay public-sector salaries, let alone fund infrastructure development. So it has been wooing foreign investors instead. It seems to be working. To finance the Mashhad line, China has reportedly offered a $2 billion loan, apparently underwritten by Iranian oil proceeds it had frozen during the time of sanctions. South Korea is exploring a similar deal. And while Italians recently waited in the wings, French rail executives, model trains in hand, paced Parisian hotel corridors to greet Mr Rohani on the first trip by an Iranian president to Europe for 17 years. But with most foreign banks too fearful of American fines to engage, raising credit remains troublesome.

A “silk rail” between east and west will also require better relations with neighbours who fear Iran’s post-sanctions rebound. “The nuclear deal has proved a double-edged sword,” bemoans a member of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce; “while relations have improved with the West, they have deteriorated closer to home.” Russia suspects Iran will become a challenger to its dominance of regional markets. And the United Arab Emirates, which backs Saudi Arabia in the region’s sectarian showdown, fears that Iran—with its many tourist attractions—might challenge its role as a global hub.

Much will depend on Mr Rohani’s diplomatic skills. Turkey’s prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, visited Tehran on March 6th with six ministers and discussed a high-speed rail link which might bridge Lake Van to usher in a “golden age” and triple bilateral trade, despite arguments over Syria. But should tensions persist, Iran is also exploring the seas. In February, an Iranian cargo of petrochemicals arrived in Antwerp, from the first Iranian ship to offload in Europe for six years. IRISL, the national shipping line, has plans to ship to the Far East, Oman and eventually the Americas; it hopes to enlarge its 160-strong fleet by floating some of its stock by the end of this year. Iran Air might go the same way after two years of restructuring, says the transport minister. Get ready for Iran’s reconnection with the world.

Opening of Nakhchivan-Tabriz-Tehran-Mashhad rail service discussed in Nakhchivan
02 March, 2016 17:07
They discussed mainly technical issues, including the train schedule and tariffs

Baku. 2 March. REPORT.AZ/ The first discussions on the opening of the Nakhchivan-Tabriz-Tehran-Mashhad international passenger rail service has been held in Nakhchivan.

Report informs, on behalf of Azerbaijan the meeting was attended by Madat Shikhamirov, deputy chief of the Department of Passenger Transportation at Azerbaijan Railways and Mahir Aliyev, director of Nakhchivan Railways. Mir Hossein Mousavi, Director General of Azerbaijan Railway Organization, and Murtaza Jaffar, Director General of Iran Railways Passenger Service.

They discussed mainly technical issues, including the train schedule and tariffs.

The preparatory meeting will be followed by a high-level gathering involving heads of Azerbaijani and Iranian railways due to take place in the coming days.



http://www.azernews.az/business/93669.html


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.

Tehran – Esfahan line should be TSI-compliant, RAI tells Chinese contractors

http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/h...ran&no_cache=1
IRAN: The Tehran – Esfahan high speed railway, which is expected to carry passengers in 2021, will be built to European TSI standards, according to national railway RAI’s Project Director Dr Jabar Ali Zakeri.

The 410 km route will be designed for 250 km/h operation, and is being delivered in two phases. This reflects the staggered approval of the project by the Iranian government; preparatory works on the southern section between Qom and Esfahan began in 2010, while the northern route between Qom and the capital is still at an early stage of preparatory works.

RAI has appointed a Chinese consortium led by China Railway Engineering Corp to undertake civil works, and Zakeri told Railway Gazette International in Tehran on May 17 that the contractor has completed two-thirds of the substructure of the Qom – Esfahan section.

RAI has also appointed Italian consultancy Italferr, a subsidiary of national railway holding company FS, in a supervisory role until at least the end of 2016. Included in its remit is the task of ensuring the Chinese teams comply with European TSIs and other technical standards.

‘We are in the final stages of negotiations with our Chinese partners’, Zakeri said. ‘We hope to work together to find common ground to ensure that this railway is interoperable with the future extensions and new lines we have planned.’

The public transport market between Tehran and Esfahan is currently dominated by long-distance bus services, with just two passenger trains linking the cities each day. The high speed line would reduce the rail journey time from around 7 h to 2 h, RAI says.

Interesting... Second try, in fact. There was a Nakhchivan Tabriz train on the iranian schedule a few years ago and it disappeared one or two years later. Incidentally, this is the route that will probably replace the Van lake ferry in a few years. But what is the state of the gauge changing installation in Jolfa those days? With the russian gauge line cut on both sides at the armenian borders, it must not see a lot of traffic...

Iran, Russia Sign Contract to Manufacture 500 Wagons

The Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran has signed a joint venture contract with Russia’s CJSC Transmashholding to manufacture 500 wagons in Iran.

An IDRO press release published on Wednesday quoted the Iranian company’s deputy for expansion of industrial investment, Fardad Daliri, as saying that the contract stipulates “attracting investment and using up-to-date technology in the domestic manufacture of freight and passenger cars".

“In the first phase, only passenger cars will be produced,” Daliri added, without elaborating on the details of the contract, including its estimate value.

A conglomerate affiliated with the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade, IDRO is active in a variety of fields, notably auto production, oil and gas as well as wagon manufacturing.

CJSC Transmashholding is known as the largest manufacturer of locomotives and rail equipment in Russia. It is the biggest supplier of rolling stock to JSC Russian Railways. The enterprise was established in April 2002. Dutch firm Breakers Investments BV and Alstom Transport, French engineering group, are among the company’s stakeholders.

Transmashholding has major customers in Bulgaria, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Serbia. The company manufactures and sells subway cars, passenger diesel locomotives, diesel engines, freight cars, flat cars and diesel trains.

Held back by an underdeveloped wagon manufacturing industry, Iran is opting for joint venture deals with international companies to upgrade technology and boost capacity, while reducing reliance on imports.

Iranian Rail Industries Development Company and Chinese rolling stock manufacturer Nanjing Puzhen Co. LTD. signed an agreement in October to jointly manufacture 215 wagons for subways trains across Iran.

Based on the agreement, IRIDC will be in charge of manufacturing the wagons.

Germany’s Siemens also agreed in October to supply components for 50 diesel-electric locomotives to Iran’s MAPNA Group. Another agreement was also signed between the two companies to jointly manufacture 70 electric locomotives to be used in the 926-km Tehran-Mashhad railroads, which is being electrified.

In January, Islamic Republic of Iran Railways and German conglomerate Siemens transportation subsidiary, Siemens Mobility, signed several memoranda of understanding in Tehran to develop Iran’s railroads. The agreements concern electrification of Tehran-Mashhad railroad and Tehran-Isfahan high-speed train, supply of 500 wagons, development of Iran’s railroad infrastructure and provision of consultation and technology.

Between 2,000 and 2,500 wagons currently in use in Iran should double by 2025, as per the 20-Year Vision Plan.

The government of President Hassan Rouhani plans to reduce the country's high fleet age to 15 years to increase the efficiency of trains. There is also massive demand for new wagons as several railroads are being built across the country.

By 2025, existing lines should be electrified and double-tracked and about 12,000 km of new lines are planned to nearly double the network’s size.

Major rail projects are currently under construction, including the electrification of the Tehran-Mashhad line, a high-speed train connecting Tehran to Isfahan and connectivity projects with Azerbaijan and Afghanistan.

The government is keen to curb imports to help Iranian companies meet most of the wagon demand domestically. Minister of Industries, Mining and Trade Mohammad Reza Nematzadeh has said his ministry is against importing wagons, as local companies are capable of meeting domestic demand.

Iran’s rail industry is in immediate need of some 1,500 wagons, experts believe, while merely a third of that figure has so far been produced domestically.

Hey, I'm looking for pictures of any six axle electric locomotives in Iran, since I've seen none on the web.
