Africa & Southern Europe
In the Africa & South Europe region, almost 240 employees work at several permanent sites and technical centres. We offer our services to both public and private customers and our activities cover all modes of transport from high speed to urban through to conventional rail transport.
In Southern Europe and the Mediterranean region, SYSTRA enjoys an historical presence in several countries. Since the 1990s, SYSTRA has provided consulting services for a wide range of projects including the Algiers, Rome and Bucharest metros, HSLs in Spain, the Naples tramway and the Turin VAL.
SYSTRA has also worked alongside African rail transport payers for more than 50 years. This historical cooperation has created a trust-based relationship over time with both customers and partners.
Since then, we have been involved in numerous major transport projects in the region including high speed lines in Portugal and Morocco; conventional railway lines in Algeria, Italy, Senegal, Turkey, Ethiopia, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Uzbekistan and the Balkans; tramways in Morocco, Algeria, Israel and Eastern Europe; and metros in Italy, Spain, Azerbaijan, Romania and Greece.
In additions to these services in the rail sector, SYSTRA is also present in the development of urban capacity transport networks: from the drawing up of the master plan to the commissioning of BRT, tramway, metro and suburban train lines. In response to a population boom in African towns and cities, and to their budget constraints, we offer technical solutions and business models which are consistent with the specificities of the countries in which we intervene (Senegal, Nigeria, DRC, Ethiopia).
In this region, the SYSTRA group also works on road projects (in Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania), and promotes inter-modal systems organising maritime, road, waterway and rail transport on the logistics platforms of ports and industrial sites (in Morocco, Congo and Uganda).
Experienced in supporting public bodies in the development of transport networks, SYSTRA is your trusted partner to define, design and also build and commission your Transport infrastructure. Our project management teams work alongside public contracting authorities to draw the best elements of partnerships with Constructors and Manufacturers.
SYSTRA also works alongside concession holders, equipment suppliers, manufacturers and civil engineering companies. In the study phases, the comprehensive view that SYSTRA has of a transport system enables us to ensure that technical solutions are correctly balanced between, on one hand, civil engineering and systems and, on the other, operating and maintenance costs. During the construction and commissioning phases, in which we play the role of project manager, we are committed to respecting the technical specifications, deadlines and budgets agreed on with our customers.
