New AVE line Madrid – Burgos with Alstom Spain signaling technology

The Madrid – Burgos high-speed line was inaugurated on July 21. The new line features Alstom’s ETCS/ERTMS technology, which brings significant benefits in terms of interoperability, safety, system capacity, service reliability and energy efficiency.

This section thus adds to the state-of-the-art signalling projects that Alstom has been developing in Spain in recent decades, which include, among others, the commissioning of the first ATP on the Mediterranean Corridor, the first driverless railway system in Madrid-Barajas, and the first ERTMS level 2 without level 1 support, on the Albacete-Alicante connection. In addition, Alstom Spain has installed more than 600 onboard equipment in different commuter and high-speed trains.

Alstom Spain has more than 650 engineers for the development of signalling solutions, two centers of excellence and test laboratories in Madrid, and project management centers in Leon, Sitges and Malaga. Alstom develops and supplies signalling and digital mobility solutions from its facilities in Spain for more than 20 countries.
