France’s NGE to help build a 330km high-speed railway in Egypt

NGE, with its rail expertise subsidiary TSO, has signed a contract to build 330km of highspeed line in Egypt. This new contract reinforces the French Group's position as a key player in the construction of international infrastructure projects. The laying of 330km of track in Egypt allows NGE to beat its own record, set in France in 2017 when it laid 320km on the South East Atlantic line.

NGE will provide its expertise, human and material resources to local companies Orascom and Arab Contractors. NGE's capacity to implement planning adapted to the client's objectives, as well as its mastery of all aspects of high-speed project management, enabled it to win this contract. Current world speed records have been broken on ballasted tracks laid by the Group: 513.3 km/h on the French Atlantic highspeed line in 1990 and 574.8 km/h on the French East-European line in 2007.

Works will start in early 2023 and will require the mobilization of up to 500 people on the site. The latter includes the installation of a total of 330 km of double track and more than 100 turnouts between the cities of Ain Al Sokhna and Borg El Arab, through the October 6 City.
