ENGIE Solutions x Dakar

An eco-friendly train for a whole region

In Dakar, managing urban travel and providing its suburbs with transport coverage are two major challenges. The government has entrusted ENGIE Solutions and Thales with developing the systems for the new Regional Express Train (TER) line. This should relieve congestion in Senegal's capital city, do away with daily traffic jams and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Key figures

8 500 tonne reduction in CO2 emissions every year
14 stations
55 km of rail network

An ultramodern, virtuous Regional Express Train

ENGIE Solutions has mobilised all of its expertise and entered into partnerships with key stakeholders in the rail sector to design and build an ultramodern, virtuous form of transport, using the most sophisticated technologies in terms of safety, reliability, comfort and services for passengers. ENGIE Solutions' teams (and their partners) are managing the project. Together, they are producing all of the general and detailed studies, and will be undertaking all of the works and transport system trials, including the TER's overall integration trials.
