FCC will install the security systems for a section of the High Speed Railway Network (AVE) to Murcia for 155 million euros

FCC has won a new contract, in partnership with CAF Signallig y Revenga Ingenieros, for the installation of security and telecommunications systems for the section linking the High Speed Railway Network (AVE) to Murcia. The total amount of the concession contract exceeds 155 million euros, of which 98.53 correspond to the installation of the systems, and the remaining 56.4 million will be destined to the subsequent maintenance and conservation, during a period of 20 years.

The AVE section awarded to FCC's industrial projects division is located between Monforte del Cid and Murcia, and has a length of 61.7 kilometres. This section will shortly be used for freight and passenger trains, thus completing the Madrid-Levante Railway Corridor.

The consortium will be in charge of drafting the construction projects, the execution of the railway signalling installations, interlocks, train protection systems, telecommunications and traffic control systems, power, as well as the technical buildings of this new section of the high speed railway network. 

With this concession contract FCC Industrial reinforces its position as a provider of integrated solutions to ADIF, while at the same time reaffirming its leadership with the most prominent clients in the field of rail systems.

At the vanguard

FCC Industrial places itself at the vanguard in the construction of these types of projects. This contract joins others already in progress, all of which require a high level of specialisation and a strong technological component.

We are currently developing the signalling systems, telecommunications, power and technical buildings of the AVE section between Vandellós-Tarragona. Also in progress is the implementation of the civil protection systems for the new tunnel Vigo-Do Maceiras and the construction of the overhead power cable of the Atlantic Railway Axis, as well as the O&M of the AVE South Tunnels.
