The digitisation of processes and the use of collaborative tools combined with an appropriate technological infrastructure are helping to improve the resilience of companies in situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic. The application of the BIM methodology is one of the key elements, especially in infrastructure projects where it is not yet well established.
14 companies from five EU countries participated in ERSAT GGC, an ambitious European project financed by the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) that will allow the implementation of satellite technology in the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) through virtual balises.
Ineco has developed its own method of analysing human error, which, according to safety studies, accounts for 80% of all accidents and mistakes. The innovation project won the 2019 CANSO Global Safety Achievement Award and Ineco’s 2019 Innova Awards.
The RONIN comprehensive road safety management tool helps reduce accidents and optimises predictive maintenance of the road network. Developed by Ineco, it was a nominee for the 2019 Ponle Freno Awards and in 2018 won a an SDG prize awarded by the Rafael del Pino Foundation and the Spanish Global Compact Network.
Ineco has taken another step towards digital transformation in drawing up projects, applying the BIM methodology and integrating it into a GIS (geographic information system) environment in the management of the Villamartín de la Abadía-Requejo section of the Ponferrada-Orense A-76 highway construction project, which it is drafting for the General Directorate of Roads, part of the Ministry of Public Works.
The incorporation of new technologies to improve the delivery of value –through new forms of digital relationships– is generating a wide variety of opportunities in both internal and external services. The aim of Ineco’s Digital Transformation Plan 2018-2020 is to take a major step forward in the implementation of a new culture centred around collaborative work and the ‘digital first’ philosophy.
The Ministry of Public Works’ Innovation Plan represents a commitment to digitisation, energy efficiency and sustainability reflected in 70 specific initiatives that have undergone a period of public consultation. February 2018 will see the launch of a coordinated process to transform the Spanish transport system to provide a high degree of personalisation and efficiency spearheaded by new technologies.
