Innotrans 2018:Major presence of the Spanish railway sector in Berlin

Dear Friends,

This September Berlin hosts Innotrans 2018, the most renowned fair in the sector worldwide. From Mafex magazine, we wanted to give very prominent coverage to the elevated participation of Spanish companies in this important professional platform. For this reason, alongside the usual sections, a complete special edition has been included on its industry, its contributions and experience in the field of infrastructure, high speed and urban transport, amongst other aspects. In addition, the most significant international achievements and projects are detailed, as well as the constant technological developments with which these companies aim to contribute to a modern, safe, efficient and comfortable railroad network.

Likewise, in this dossier, readers will be able to find a detailed description of the companies that will be present at Innotrans 2018 and the stand, where they will be able to visit them to view first-hand their multiple solutions and products. Special mention deserves the signature invited of this ample monograph, to charge of the minister of Public Works of Spain, José Luis Ábalos Meco, that analyses the evolution of the Spanish rail sector and its increasing weight in the international market. Under the title ” Proven experience on major infrastructure projects worldwide”, a description about a potent industry that plays a key role inside and outside our borders is given.

Along with this extra edition, as in previous occasions, in the section “Mafex reports” the

main conclusions of the General Assembly of the association are compiled, in which the the renewal of the Management Committee was approved for the next four years.

Another of the main points was the presentation of the 18 new members registered since the beginning of 2018 and to whom from here we extend our warmest welcome, adding a total of 85 members in the Association.

In “Members News”, the recent news from 21 of Mafex’s companies is included: tender awards, appointments, new developments and progress in foreign markets. Furthermore, “Destination” includes a report on the railway in Germany, a country that boasts a closely consolidated network and which the federal government will continue to foster through new investments over the coming years.

The section “In depth” is dedicated this time to urban rail transport in Berlin; a city that enjoys an extensive and modern combined system comprised of metropolitan railway, tram, suburban and regional rail networks.

Finally, in “Innovation”, 15 new technological advances are published that show the successful results of the R & D boost of Mafex companies.

We hope that all these contents are of your interest and look forward to greeting you at the Spanish Pavilion at Innotrans 2018.
