Azerbaijan Railways orders Alstom KZ8A freight locomotives
12 May 2014



AZERBAIJAN: National railway ADDY has placed a €300m order for 50 Alstom KZ8A twin-section 25 kV AC electric freight locomotives to be delivered in 2016-18.

The locomotives are to be supplied from Astana in Kazakhstan by the EKZ joint venture of Kazakh national railway KTZ (50%), Transmashholding (25%) and Alstom (25%).

Alstom’s share of the contract announced on May 12 is worth €150m. Options for the construction of a depot, technical assistance, maintenance and staff training are to be negotiated in the next six months.

EKZ is supplying 200 of the KZ8A locomotives to KTZ under a contract signed in March 2011. The 1 520 mm gauge KZ8A is rated at 8·8 MW, has a maximum speed of 120 km/h and can haul up to 9 000 tonnes.

‘Azerbaijan is a strategic transit point between Europe and Central Asia’, said Thibault Desteract, Senior Vice-President of Alstom Transport Russia & CIS. ‘The modern KZ8A freight locomotives will help increasing its carrying capacity in transportation of raw materials and goods.’

According to Alstom, 1 278 km of Azerbaijan’s 2 932 km network is electrified at 3 kV DC. In 2006 Azerbaijan railways launched a long-term modernisation programme which includes a gradual switch from DC to 25 kV AC electrification and envisages a doubling of current traffic volumes by 2017

Stadler signs Baku – Tbilisi – Kars sleeping car contract
12 Jun 2014


Impression of Stadler Rail sleeping and dining cars for Azerbaijan Railways

AZERBAIJAN: Stadler Rail has signed a contract to supply Azerbaijan Railways with 30 gauge-changing sleeping and dining cars for use on future Baku – Tbilisi – Kars – Istanbul services.

The SFr120m contract announced on June 12 is Stadler’s first in Azerbaijan. It covers the supply of five types of coach to be delivered from the Altenrhein plant in Switzerland between mid-2016 and mid-2017, as well as spare parts and staff training. There is an option for an additional 70 sleeping cars.

‘The development of new products and new markets is very important to us’, said Stadler Rail CEO and owner Peter Spuhler. He added that growth in CIS markets is a strategic objective for Stadler, as the financial situation in western Europe has reduced orders from its traditional markets.

The coaches are to be operated as 10-car rakes each offering with a total of 257 beds. The air-conditioned vehicles will have controlled emission toilets and emergency generators able to provide power for 24 h.

The coaches are to equipped with the DB AG/RAFIL Type V system of adjustable wheelsets to accommodate the change of gauge from 1 520 mm to 1 435 mm standard gauge which will be located at Akhalkalaki in Georgia when the Kars – Tbilisi line opens

AZERBAIJAN Railways (ADY) has issued a tender for technical supervision and technical support services in preparation for the procurement of 62 electric locomotives for the Baku – Beyuk – Kesik corridor, which is currently being upgraded.

The $US 450m modernisation project, which is being financed by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), includes the conversion of the route from 3kV dc to 25kV 50Hz ac electrification.

The order will comprise 50 freight locomotives and 12 passenger units. The deadline for expressions of interest in the technical support contract is August 11.

Bakı vağzalının təmirini və yaxud daha doğrusu yenidənqurulmasını niyə başlamırlar? Görən nəyi gözləyirlər. Əqər köcürəcək olsalar, onda ən azından bir xəbər çıxardı.

Pray that they include some sort of temperature controls in the new cars. It was 90F last time I took a new sleeper car from Baku to Tbilisi.. with no window.

In the new cars they will, as they will be supplied by Stadler.
It can also be insanely cold, especially in the west of Azerbaijan, so I hope they take care of this.

Köçürəcəklərinə inanmıram, çünki bu həddən artıq vəsait və vaxt tələb edir.
Amma razıyam ki, vağzal təcili rekonstruksiya edilməlidir.
Məncə bunu vaxtında etmək olar, nəzərə alsaq ki, yeni vaqonlar və lokomotivlər 2016-dan əvvəl Bakıya gəlməyəcək.
