RENFE BUYING FORTY NEW TRAINS

The Minister for Public Works, Ana Pastor, has announced that Spanish train operator RENFE are planning to purchase forty new trains between now and 2018, thirty of which will be high speed models.

According to a statement from the ministry, the aim of the investment is to “improve the mobility of citizens” allowing them to “move better, safely and in a shorter time”.

Renfe is currently drafting public tender documents for the allocation of the orders, which were detailed during the InnoTrans international railway trade fair held in Berlin this week.

Track management company Adif already announced plans for an additional 1,000 kilometres of high speed track during 2015, reaching areas such as Zamora, Burgos, León and Palencia, as well as Cádiz and Murcia.

During a speech at InnoTrans, Pastor noted that Spain already has the second largest network of high speed railway in the world behind China, with a network of over 3,000 kilometres, and “we are working to have a train of high performance of the century, reaching many more places in Spain in 2018”, she added.
