The technology that allows trains to run on tracks with different gauges has overcome one of the major obstacles to the further development of rail transport in Spain, and it provides a model that can be adapted to other countries facing the same issues.
Renfe has contracted Ineco to provide the inspection and commissioning of the first five CAF diesel trains that will serve the commuter network of the Kenyan capital. The units, which were sent from Mallorca, have been assessed and prepared to provide service for another 25 years.
The commissioning of Metro de Quito’s first subway line is fast approaching. Ineco has supervised the construction of the 18 new trains built by Spanish company CAF, that in just a few short months will be providing service to the most ambitious and significant infrastructure project in the history of the city and will be helping to create a “place to be better citizens”.
This coming 20th April will see the 25th anniversary of the opening of the first high-speed line in Spain, the Madrid-Seville AVE. The date is a landmark in railway history, as it is the day a new system was implemented with advanced technology which enabled new standards of comfort, quality, journey times and safety to be reached that had until then been unthinkable.
Ineco has executed the Master Plan for Comprehensive Waste Management and the regulatory framework for Quito. The study aims to meet the requirements of the ‘Cero Basura’ (‘Zero Waste’) programme, which is based on raising awareness and managing effectively the entire lifecycle of solid waste in the Ecuadorian capital. A circular economy strategy founded on effective models and solid contemporary regulation.
Throughout its history, Ineco has provided supervision for over 1,500 trains of all types and from all manufacturers, both in Spain and abroad. A high level of specialisation and technical knowledge are required in order to ensure that everything is functional and meets the operator’s exact requirements.
