THE SPANISH RAIL INDUSTRY HAS DEMONSTRATED OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS ITS EXPERTISE TO LEAD THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MODERN INFRASTRUCTURE OF THIS TYPE OF TRANSPORT ACROSS THE WORLD. AND IN THE FACE OF FUTURE CHALLENGES, IT MAINTAINS ITS MOMENTUM TO CONTINUE BEING THE BENCHMARK WITH A SOLID VALUE CHAIN MODEL.
The harshness of the years marked by Covid-19 has already been left behind, and now, after a complex transition, the Spanish rail industry faces a series of future challenges, always maintaining its capacity to act in each and every one of the fields required by its technological know-how, which has consolidated it as one of the worldwide leading providers of cutting-edge solutions for the transport of the XXI century.
All this is based on the 2030 Agenda set by the Spanish government, and by the European commitment to be the first climate-neutral continent in 2050, with an ambitious roadmap that wants the railway to be its main protagonist, considered from Brussels as a key piece in that transition towards a sustainable mobility.
A development to consolidate itself as the main provider of solutions in the XXI century
The evolution during these years for the Spanish rail industry, after a development achieved in decades, has allowed it to consolidate itself as one of the main providers of solutions for the XXI century, and consolidate its presence in projects of more than 95 countries. Its technological knowledge has allowed it to overcome the great challenges with a high level of complexity in the design and execution, and with an exceptional technological deployment.
It has been necessary, and continues to be so, in specific projects, to face a complex orography, overcome with mega infrastructures. Challenges have had to be met to bring together the operation of the different track gauges existing at each site, or the technologies of the different international manufacturers. But the solutions provided with their
know-how have allowed to overcome any type of challenge.
It can be pointed out, then, that the Spanish industry is a claim outside our borders, and is present in the railway infrastructures around the world, where the most efficient, safe and sustainable networks have been developed.
It has a good range of services in, for example, Australia, Colombia, Turkey or New Zealand. And its presence and experience has been requested for metro, tram, conventional railway lines and high-speed projects in countries such as India, Canada, the United States, Australia, Poland or countries in the Middle East and Latin America, where it has helped plan the transport programmes in major cities and numerous metro networks.
“The development of modern transport infrastructures around the world has a Spanish seal. in the past few years, the railway industry of this country has exported its technology and knowledge to more than 95 countries on five continents. its model of success: a solid and very competitiv value chain, commitment to the most avant-garde r+d, unique know-how, and excellence in service”.
