SANY Shows Chinese-built Power in Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railway Project

The first modern electrified railway line in Africa, Addis Ababa-Djibouti Railway, was opened to traffic on Oct. 5. The manufacturing giant SANY Heavy Industry took part in the huge project.

A total of 43 sets of SANY equipment were used in the railway construction, including concrete machinery, road machinery, excavators and cranes.

The whole construction period lasted for only 25 months, while the tight schedule hasn’t affected the quality, owing to the reliability of SANY equipment and sufficient parts supply.

Thanks to the thorough technical support of SANY, not a single equipment breakdown occurred, guaranteeing the successful completion of the railway project.

The standard-gauge railway runs 751.7 kilometers long, connecting Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia and Djibouti, one of the largest modern ports in East Africa, with the total investment of US$4 billion.

As the first electrified railway in Africa, it is designed for trains at the speed of 120km/h.

This is the second transnational railway built in Africa by a Chinese company following the Tanzania-Zambia railway. It now takes only seven hours from Addis Ababa to Djibouti.

SANY entered the African market in 2002, and SANY machinery has participated in many major projects on the continent. It has not only become the reliable partner of the local customers, but also witnessed the establishment of landmark buildings in Africa.

In the Mombasa-Nairobi Railway Project, Kenya’s biggest infrastructure project since its independence in 1963, SANY has supplied 120 units of heavy machinery, valued at over US$15 million. SANY’s commitment to product quality and service is recognized by the local parties.
