Stadler Develops Project on Passenger Car Plant

The Swiss company Stadler is developing a project on the construction of a passenger car plant in Azerbaijan's second largest city, Ganja.

The plant will allow the construction and rebuilding of passenger wagons.

The passenger cars of Azerbaijan Railways are currently repaired abroad, particularly in Ukraine and Russia, due to the lack of the necessary infrastructure.

The construction of a new plant,which will be established on the basis of the wagon depot in Ganja, is expected to start in 2014.

The sides will also discuss the details of receiving passenger wagons to be used after the launch of the new Baku-Tbilisi-Kars (BTK) railway.

The BTK railway is a regional rail link project that connects Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey.

The total length of the BTK is 826 kilometers (about 513 miles). After commissioning the railway, mutual trade between Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkey will increase significantly and the total volume will exceed $10 billion per year.

The Swiss Stadler Rail Group, with its ten sites in Bussnang, Altenrhein, Winterthur (Switzerland), Berlin (Germany), Siedlce (Poland), Pusztaszabolcs, Szolnok (Hungary), Czech Republic (Prague), Italy (Meran), and Algiers (Algeria), is focusing on regional and suburban service markets, regional express railway service, and streetcars.

Stadler Rail has positioned itself as a supplier, complementing global rail vehicle builders such as Alstom, Bombardier, and Siemens.
