CÔTE D'IVOIRE: The first two of six GT26 diesel locomotives being supplied from the USA by NRE were unloaded at the Port of Abidjan on June 24. The remaining four are scheduled to arrive by August.
Bolloré Africa Logistics subsidiary Sitarail holds the concession to operate the 1 260 km metre gauge network linking Côte d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso. It operates 40 freight and 12 passenger trains a week, totalling 910 000 tonne-km and 300 000 passenger-km a year.
The company said the additional locomotives would provide a boost in capacity to meet ‘constantly growing demand’ from its customers.
