People‘s Democratic Republic of Algeria

National ID Card, Driver's License & Vehicle Registration


The ID card personalization project of Algeria was awarded by the Ministry of the Interior and of Local Authorities and started in August 2015. Mühlbauer closely cooperated with the Ministry to deliver card personalization equipment and a production and personalization management system for two personalization centers in Algiers and La­ghouat. The centers have been equipped to personalize the new Algerian ID Card by laser engraving (image and personal data of the card holder) and chip encoding on a hybrid card. To interconnect the production and personalization management with the existing infrastructure and to ensure a smooth implementation, Mühlbauer coordinated with local partners. During the first year of operation, Mühlbauer provided supervision staff at site to support the ramp-up.

Moreover, the local staff received a comprehensive training on the systems, in order to guarantee the facility’s efficient operation. After the successful completion of the first project, Mühl­bauer was engaged for a follow-up project in 2016: the delivery of a complete Smart Card factory for the production and personalization of up to 5 million national driver’s licenses and vehicle registration cards per year. The project included the delivery and setup of the complete plant, the development of a security concept, the systems for card body production, laser pre-personalization, inspection and personalization with the MB ALFRESCO® technology, as well as the installation of the proven production and personali­zation management system MB INCAPE. Besides, a comprehensive service package was included: customer staff received an all-inclusive training and Mühlbauer delivered the know-how transfer to enable the smooth operation after hand-over, including the new production unit DIN ISO certification.
