InnoTrans 2022: the Spanish railway industry shows the world the developments and innovations that make it an international benchmark

After the standstill in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Berlin hosts once again InnoTrans 2022 this September, the most important trade fair worldwide in the railway sector. The event will have, once again, a wide participation of the Spanish industry and from Mafex we offer in our current magazine a wide coverage of our partners in such an outstanding event.

You will find a detailed description of the companies participating in InnoTrans 2022, as well as the stands where they can be visited to learn first-hand about their multiple solutions and products to contribute to a modern, safe, connected, and sustainable railway.

In addition, we review the milestones achieved by the Spanish railway industry, which has become an international benchmark and, at present, exports its know-how to the five continents. A recognition that, without a doubt, our companies have earned thanks to the work and effort made in each of the aspects that make up the value chain, offering a “turnkey” service that ranges from the first steps of planning and financing to the final commissioning. Currently, Spanish companies are present in more than 90 countries as part of the most important projects in recent years.

It is worth mentioning this extensive paper, written by the invited guest, the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda Raquel Sánchez, who analyses the evolution of the Spanish railway sector.

On the other hand, the current issue of the Mafex magazine offers a broad analysis of the challenges that all the stakeholders that make up the railway sector must face in terms of accessibility. Because achieving a public transport that is fully accessible to all, without barriers and with an infrastructure and rolling stock that adapts to the needs of each individual, is a priority for governments, operators, and companies in the sector. Not surprisingly, the universality in the use of transport is one of the basic lines of action in the provision of railway services in the Spanish network, one of the countries where more developments have been introduced in recent years. In this respect, in our country improvement and modernisation programmes are designed to contribute to meeting the objective of making infrastructures and facilities an accessible space, without limitations.

All these topics are analysed in issue No 32 of the Mafex magazine, which also includes current news from more than 30 partners and the development of new innovative solutions.

We hope that all these contents will be of interest to you, and we look forward to meeting you in the Spanish Pavilion at InnoTrans 2022.
