Elsewedy Electric and Alstom team up on new projects for transportation network in Egypt

Elsewedy Electric and Alstom, a global leader in the transportation sector, have teamed up on two new projects that would take the transportation network in Egypt to a new level in the digital age.


In the first deal, Elsewedy Electric PSP has signed a subcontract agreement with Alstom for Cairo Monorail Project.


Elsewedy Electric PSP scope of works includes the installation of the power rail & the signaling for the New Administrative Capital City Line that is going to help people transport between New Capital and Nasr City covering a total length of 63KM (57KM for mainline and 6KM for depot) with 22 stop-stations.


Meanwhile, the Egyptian National Railways Authority (ENR) has awarded a new contract to Alstom and Elsewedy Electric to modernize the Tanta – Zifta – Zagazig mainline, covering approximately 65 km including nine main stations during the TransMEA Exhibition & Conference.


The project’s scope includes the design, supply, installation of the signaling, power, telecom systems and trackside equipment for migration to ETCSL1.

“We are pleased to be selected for an additional signaling modernization project and to do it with Elsewedy Electric. This agreement builds on our long-term partnership with ENR and we remain committed to providing state-of-the-art signaling solutions to Egypt and its citizens,” said Mohamed Khalil, Managing Director of Alstom Egypt.
