Alstom, a global leader in rail transport and sustainable mobility, said its Egyptian unit has signed a protocol with the Egyptian National Railways Authority (ENR) to create a modern simulation of signalling systems inside the Wardan Training Center (Technical Institute for Railways Technology) and support it with resources to provide the required autonomous training in this field.
The training initiative by Alstom is based on a “Train the Trainer” model that targets a better educated generation of trainers who will be able to transfer the knowledge of signalling systems to ENR trainees.
This will develop and qualify the capabilities of human resources in the railway sector and help to achieve better efficiency in operations as well as promoting sustainable employment/income for individuals.
As a transport support leader, Alstom is committed to establishing strong long-term collaborations with the Ministry of Transportation and ENR.
On the deal, Mohamed Khalil, Managing Director Alstom Egypt, said: "We are very proud that Alstom Egypt is sharing with our client the development and qualification of human resources in the railway sector and achieving better efficiency in operations as well as promoting sustainable employment for individuals."
Alstom has been present in Egypt for over 40 years and has continually engaged and supported railway infrastructure development in the country, he stated.
Over the years, Alstom has supported Egypt’s ambition to enhance and develop its railway infrastructure in both urban and mainline projects in order to address the increasing need for sustainable mobility solutions, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
