TDA chooses Ampegon
ALGERIA: Télédiffusion d’Algérie (TDA) has selected Ampegon for the development and installation of new shortwave transmission systems. The project will enable TDA to broadcast SW without purchasing airtime from third party vendors.
Ampegon was selected from a restricted international call to tender. The Turnkey project will see transmitters and antennas installed for TDA at Bechar and Ouargla. Ampegon will accompany TDA through the entire project - developing turnkey solutions at the two sites including two 300kW shortwave transmitters, two shortwave antenna systems and civil works.
All the antenna works will be carried out by Ampegon in Schifferstadt, Germany, while the transmitters will be designed and constructed at the Ampegon factory in Turgi, Switzerland. The multi-million Euro project will be finished within two years at the end of 2016.
