Télédiffusion d’Algérie Selects Transradio, Ampegon
Télédiffusion d’Algérie, the national broadcaster of Algeria, has chosen Transradio and Ampegon to modernize two medium-wave transmission stations in Bechar and Oulet Fayed.
The Transradio TRAM line 400 kW and 600 kW medium-wave transmitters, which will be used for the project are “known for their robustness, efficiency, reliability and superior DRM performance,” according to the manufacturer.
“Transradio has a long history in Algeria with its TRAM line transmitters,” said Transradio CEO Jochen Huber. “The award for the second high power project within some months demonstrates once again the common strength of our cooperation with Ampegon.”
The antenna modernization work will be performed by the Ampegon team in Schifferstadt, Germany, which, the company said, is experienced in designing, refurbishing and upgrading antennas for DRM compatibility.
When the Transradio and Ampegon representatives last visited Algiers, the Télédiffusion d’Algérie management stated its confidence in Transradio and Ampegon’s experience, technology and quality transmission systems. The broadcaster had previously chosen the firms to carry out a longwave project in Tipaza.
“We feel honored to be part of this modernization project and deliver Télédiffusion d’Algérie full turnkey systems,” said Josef Troxler, CEO of Ampegon. “Confirming again that the collaboration with Transradio continues to maintain and build its leading position.”
