As prime contractor in the 13-year agreement, HP will work with JSC TransTelecom, a subsidiary of the Republic of Kazakhstan’s railway system operator, Kazakhstan Temir Zholy, to deliver, implement and support the KTZh Traction Power Dispatch Automated Control System.
“The railway is one of the largest and most critical components of the Kazakhstan transportation infrastructure, so efficiency and reliability is of strategic importance to our government, businesses, citizens and surrounding nations,” said Askar Mamin, CEO and vice president of JSC TransTelecom.
KTZh expects its railway’s electrical energy consumption to be reduced by up to 7 percent and its diesel fuel consumption by up to 13 percent.
“Commerce across Europe, and between Europe and Asia, depends on KTZh’s operations, and the company—as well as the nation—is taking an active role in using information to improve and better serve its customers,” said Markus Ruff, VP of HP Enterprise Services—Central and Eastern Europe.
HP will use its Applications Transformation and Integration Services to modernize the KTZh infrastructure and manage the system with its applications management services and infrastructure outsourcing services.
HP will also provide hardware, including HP ProLiant blade servers, HP Storage and HP Networking, to modernize the KTZh data center.
