The standard-gauge railway runs 751.7 kilometers long, connecting Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia and Djibouti, one of the largest modern ports in East Africa, with the total investment of US$4 billion. As the first electrified railway in Africa, it is designed for trains at the speed of 120km/h.

This is the second transnational railway built in Africa by a Chinese company following the Tanzania-Zambia railway. It now takes only seven hours from Addis Ababa to Djibouti.

SANY entered the African market in 2002, and SANY machinery has participated in many major projects on the continent. It has not only become the reliable partner of the local customers, but also witnessed the establishment of landmark buildings in Africa.

In the Mombasa-Nairobi Railway Project, Kenya’s biggest infrastructure project since its independence in 1963, SANY has supplied 120 units of heavy machinery, valued at over US$15 million. SANY’s commitment to product quality and service is recognized by the local parties.
