SICE is collaborating with Siemens Mobility on the implementation of the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) system within the project for the construction of a new 2,000 km high-speed rail network in Egypt, worth 8.1 billion euros. This rail network will connect 60 cities across the country, enabling both passengers and freight to travel safely and efficiently, significantly improving the passenger experience and reducing travel time for millions of Egyptian passengers.
The first section will connect the Red Sea town of Ain Sokhna with Marsa Matruh and Alexandria on the Mediterranean coast via 21 stations.
SICE’s scope within the project includes the design, supply, supervision of the installation, commissioning and maintenance of the latest technology sales and validation system in the stations, favouring the accessibility of all passengers to the public transport system. The system will provide the capacity to manage different users, fares and types of journeys, as well as to reserve the seats assigned to them. SICE has been selected thanks to the great flexibility it offers in the development of the AFC Software, facilitating integrations with the different existing systems.
