Talgo signs Egyptian rolling stock agreement

Talgo and Arab Organization for Industrialization (AOI) signed a framework agreement for the joint development of Egyptian railways capacity and performance improvement projects.
Under the terms of the framework agreement, Talgo and SEMAF (factory)-AOI will explore all the options available for the joint manufacturing of rolling stock to be used in different operating segments, including long-distance rail services and as part of the ambitious plans underway to reduce travel times and improve the quality of the public transport services across Egypt.
The agreement will deepen the commercial relationship established last April when ENR awarded Talgo what it will be its second train supply project, after the successful commissioning of very high-speed trains for the Haramain railway in Saudi Arabia.
This agreement is independent to the EUR 158 million contract for the supply of 6 trains, awarded in April by Egyptian National Railways, which will provide service on the main route of the country, connecting the cities of Alexandria in the Mediterranean with the capital, Cairo, and the southern city of Aswan.
