Third phase begins in successful partnership with Uzbekistan Railways
Germany and the Republic of Uzbekistan agreed in 2019 to develop their relations in the transport sector for the benefit of both countries. DB Engineering & Consulting (DB E&C) and JSC O’zbekiston temir yo’llari – also known as UTY – have been successful in making these relations happen in practice.
After years of a successful partnership in electrifying the Karshi-Termez line and working on a 19.2-kilometer tunnel at the Kamchik Pass, DB E&C won two tenders with Italferr to upgrade the metro in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan.
The Uzbek Ministry of Transport and other policymakers are happy with DB E&C’s work, and DB E&C experts were commissioned in 2019 to provide consulting services to help UTY become more customer-centric. In addition to the contract currently in place with UTY, DB E&C also signed a memorandum of understanding with the Uzbek Ministry of Transport in early 2020. An international team of experts has assessed the situation at UTY and developed a logistics strategy. They have also now identified the factors that will be critical to UTY’s continued development. This marks the start of the third assignment for DB E&C as part of its project with UTY.
