Algeria scores major deal in vehicles production

afrol News, 10 August - Algeria could become Africa's major production plant for German vehicles and engines following the signing of a major deal that will involve at least five German plants.

The signing between the United Arab Emirates investment, Aabar and German companies will see three manufacturing plants being constructed in Algeria for the production of vehicles and engines on the basis of German licences.

The Algerian Prime Minister announced that the Abu Dhabi investment company Aabar and the Algerian Ministries of Defence and Industry have concluded a memorandum of understanding with five German companies relating to the construction and operation of manufacturing plants in the country.

“Aabar are delighted to be working with the Algerian government and some of Germany’s leading technology companies on this exciting new venture. With this important investment, Aabar continues to develop opportunities through our partnership with Daimler,” said Khadem Al Qubaisi, Aabar’s Chairman.

The statement released by the company said it is intended that MAN Ferrostaal will carry out the entire project as general contractor.

According to Aarbar, the company is expected to modernise and build production facilities in Tiaret, Ain Smara and Oued Hamimine. "After this, assembly equipment for the manufacture of vehicles and engines is to be installed. It is envisaged that MAN Ferrostaal will subsequently manage their operation in joint venture companies which have yet to be established," the statement said.

Daimler, Deutz, MTU Friedrichshafen and Rheinmetall are all said to be involved in the project as technology partners, providing licences and proprietary rights, as well as parts sets for the manufacture of the vehicles and engines that are supplied from Germany.

"With the support of these partners, it is intended that the portion of local production in Algeria can be gradually increased over time, for example by identifying and using domestic suppliers. Specific products to be manufactured are the Sprinter, Unimog, G-Class and other all-wheel drive vehicles as well as engines," the Aabar statement said.
