DIF Alta Velocidad has awarded the consortium of CAF Signalling, Revenga Ingenieros and FCC Industrial e Infraestructuras Energéticas a € 98.6m contract to develop the Vandellós-Tarragona section of the Mediterranean Corridor and its connection with the High-Speed Madrid-Barcelona-French border line.
This contract consists of implementing the work and 20 years maintenance of the signal box installations, Level 2 ERTMS train protection systems, fixed telecommunication systems, centralised traffic control and auxiliary safety and protection systems.
The Vandellós-Tarragona section spans approximately 65 km. Infrastructure highlights include Rojales tunnel (1.9 km long) and Francolí viaduct (1.2 km) along with L’Hospitalet de l’Infant station and train sidings at Mont-roig del Camp and Cambrils.
For CAF Signalling, as project leader, this contract marks an important milestone and qualitative step towards consolidating its strategy as it involves implementing a new ERTMS system with in-house technology, AURIGA ERTMS.
