The construction works on the AVE high-speed line between Madrid and Galicia represent one of the greatest technical challenges ever faced by Adif Alta Velocidad: the rugged terrain of the Galician region poses an engineering challenge that requires remarkable precision. In this article, different experts from Ineco and Adif Alta Velocidad describe some of the main works on one of the most complex sections of the line.
Ineco was in charge of the project and construction management for a new
space that highlights the combination of digital tools and technology. From
queue management to lighting and public address systems, the new Renfe Space provides maximum coordination and personalisation of passenger services.
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.
For a number of years now, Ineco has had a professional corporate volunteer programme in collaboration with several NGOs from the Fundación Lealtad: employees put their technical knowledge at the disposal of charitable projects in developing countries in favor of those most in need.
With the opening of the high-speed line, the trip between Madrid and Granada will take 2 hours and 45 minutes. The discovery of archaeological remains near Antequera and complex hydrogeology around the town of Loja were the main challenges to overcome in the final section, where Ineco carried out different works for Adif Alta Velocidad.
