Max Bögl Stiftung & Co.

Full Text

One of the largest construction companies in the German construction industry.

On February 2015, the company won a tender for the construction and maintenance of the track and electronic systems of the Tel Aviv- Jerusalem A1 rail. The A1 train route crosses the Green Line into the occupied West Bank in two areas, using occupied Palestinian land, some of it privately owned, for an Israeli transportation project aimed exclusively for Israelis.

The company won this EUR 160 million tender as part of an international consortium, named the Electra Bögl Group (or Electra Bögl FL), composed of the Israeli companies Electra and Electra Infrastructures Hofrey Hasharon and the Swiss company Signon Schweiz. The Construction will include laying 46 kilometers of track, setting up electromechanical systems that support railway operation, management and integration. The project started immediately after the signing of the contract and is due to be completed in 34 months. The maintenance services included in the contract will be provided by the consortium for a period of 10 years.

This is the second time Max Bögl has won a tender under the framework of the A1 project. In 2009, Israeli media reported that together with Electra Infrastructures Hofrey Hasharon (previously known as Hofrey Hasharon), the company won the tender for the construction of section D of the rail – the last segment between the Cedars Valley in the OPT and the Binyanei HaUma station in Jerusalem. Back then, it reportedly provided Hofrey Hasharon with engineering consultancy.
