  4. > Manufacture of Railway and Tramway Locomotives and Rolling Stock in South Africa 2014

This report focuses on the manufacture of railway locomotives and rolling stock. The industry is driven by the collective investments, valued at more than R430bn, of Transnet and the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA). The current contracts have been awarded to rail consortia and joint ventures comprising global companies and local empowerment partners such as Gibela and CSR E-loco Supply on the one hand, or to global original equipment manufacturers of locomotives such as China North Rail and General Electric. The establishment of local sustainable rolling stock supply chains is essential if the successful bidders are to meet the localisation requirements and Transnet Engineering (TE) will have to play a strong role as builder-partner, assembly-partner and technology-transfer partner.
