Bombardier wants to set up a monorail component factory in Egypt’s SCZone

Canada’s Bombardier is interested in building a monorail components plant in the Suez Canal Economic Zone, Transport Minister Kamel El Wazir said, according to Mubasher. The factory would manufacture all railway and metro components to cover the needs of the Egyptian market and export to African countries. Bombardier is expected to begin manufacturing the main components for the two monorails linking the Sixth of October City to Giza and Nasr City to the new administrative capital in 1Q2020, and start assembly in June 2020. Egypt had signed a 30-year contract with Bombardier, Orascom Construction, and Arab Contractors last year that will see the consortium construct, operate, and maintain the lines.
