Télédiffusion d’Algérie is renewing their mediumwave stations in Bechar and Oulet Fayed

Berlin, Germany and Turgi, Switzerland; April 4, 2014. Télédiffusion d’Algérie (TDA), the national broadcaster of Algeria, selected TRANSRADIO and Ampegon to modernize two mediumwave transmission stations. The project was offered in cooperation between TRANSRADIO and Ampegon.

The TRANSRADIO TRAM line 400 kW and 600 kW mediumwave transmitters which will be used for the project are well known for their robustness, efficiency, reliability and superior DRM performance.

All the antenna modernization works will be carried out by the Ampegon team in Schifferstadt, Germany which is highly experienced in designing, refurbishing and upgrading antennas to full DRM compatibility.

During the last visit of TRANSRADIO and Ampegon representatives in Algers the TDA management stated its confidence in TRANSRADIO’s and Ampegon’s experience, technology and quality transmission systems. After previously awarding the longwave project in Tipaza to TRANSRADIO and Ampegon, TDA is pleased to choose both partners again for the mediumwave project in Bechar and Oulet Fayed.

Jochen Huber, CEO of TRANSRADIO stated: “TRANSRADIO has a long history in Algeria with its TRAM line transmitters. The award for the second high power project within some months demonstrates again the common strength of our cooperation with Ampegon.”

Josef Troxler, CEO of Ampegon stated: “We feel honored to be part of this modernization project and deliver TDA full turnkey systems. Proofing again that the collaboration with TRANSRADIO continues to maintain and build its leading position.”
