The inauguration of the AVE to Alicante is a success
ELECTRÉN has successfully concluded its participation in the work in Traction and Remote Control Substations of the new High Speed service from Madrid to Alicante, specifically in the Albacete-Valencia-Alicante section. Together with ALSTOM and CYMI, ELECTRÉN carried out traction installations along the entire distance in a period of approximately two and a half years.
The Energy Division of ADIF have congratulated us for completing the work on time, which required a final joint effort as with any project of this magnitude. The inauguration of the line was a success and that is what really makes up happy at ELECTRÉN.
The facilities have a service tension of 400 kV to supply the electrified line of 2×25 kV and are in conformance with the climate conditions of the line, with high wind, temperature and humidity in some sections. This includes the substations of Campanario and Sax, as well as 11 intermediate centers of auto-transformation and 2 final centers of auto-transformation.
The new service offers multiple timetables with support on weekends and stops in Cuenca, Albacete and Villena. It will allow passengers to reach the Costa Blanca in less than two and a half hours, which both tourists and entrepreneurs will be able to take advantage of.
