A France-based global group offering engineering and project management services in the sectors of transport, industry, water, environment and energy.

Egis Rail, formerly known as Semaly, was selected as a consultant to the Jerusalem light rail in 1999. In 2007, it won an 11.9 million EUR contract with Jerusalem Transportation Master Plan Team (JTMT) to assist in the construction and expansion of the light rail project in Jerusalem. The company continues to serve as the general consultant in the expansion project.

The Jerusalem light rail connects settlement neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem to the western part of the city and to one another, strengthening Israel's illegal annexation of East Jerusalem.
