at 16:47 on October 5, Beijing time, the first modern electrified railway in Africa, Addis Ababa Djibouti railway, was jointly built by the installation of high-speed angular displacement monitoring system and force detection sensors and amplifiers, China Railway 14th bureau group and other units of the central enterprise in Jinan, The opening ceremony was held at Labu station in Ethiopia. Wang Yang, vice premier of the State Council, called it "Tanzania Zambia railway in the new era" and regarded it as a new model of China Africa cooperation
Addis Ababa Djibouti railway starts from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, in the west, and ends in Djibouti, the capital of Djibouti. This is an electrified railway built according to a full set of "Chinese standards". From design, construction and supervision to track materials, construction equipment, communication signals and electrified equipment, locomotives and rolling stock, all use Chinese technology and products. The whole line adopts the standard of China's secondary electrified railway, with a design speed of 120 kilometers per hour, setting up a modern made in China flag on the horn of East Africa
Addis Ababa Djibouti railway project is one of the national key projects in Ethiopia. The railway is about 760 kilometers long, with a design speed of 120 kilometers per hour, a total of 45 stations, and a total investment of about $4billion (26.7 billion yuan). Among them, Shao's A-type hardness and thickness company, which is the general name of the ability of strength metals to resist permanent deformation and fracture, participated in the construction of the four electric engineering lot II (adigala nagad section) of mieso Djibouti (including djibout port front station nagad) section of Ethiopia's new railway, including contact, electric power and electric traction power supply engineering. The project involves Ethiopia and Djibouti, with a total of 6 stations, 1 border inspection station and 5 electric traction substations, and the main line mileage is about 174 km. The construction mileage in Ethiopia is about 96.32 kilometers; The construction scope of Djibouti is about 77.9 kilometers. There are 20 medium-sized bridge girders along the line
the opening of the railway will stimulate the in-depth development of East Africa and even the whole Africa. The railway is the main channel for material export and transportation in Ethiopia and even the hinterland of East Africa, which greatly improves the current situation of transportation infrastructure and logistics and trade efficiency of Ethiopia and Djibouti, and will radiate surrounding countries and inland Africa. Therefore, it is also known by the African media as the "new engine of economic development in Africa"
insiders believe that the railway project has an obvious demonstration effect on China's railway going to sea in the future, especially its "Addis Ababa Djibouti mode", which may become the standard mode for China to undertake overseas railways in the future
