Maintenance workshop – Ethiopia
Ethiopia is investing in its railway system. The rail network is to be expanded to cover more than 4’700 km. Yapi Merkezi from Turkey has been contracted for a central 420 km section of new electrified railway line by Ethiopian Railway Company (ERC). Yapi Merkezi is sourcing from several European countries, including Switzerland and Austria. The railway will be powered with energy from hydro-electric sources. This will substantially reduce emissions compared to the current mode of transport using trucks.
