Spain, The longest high speed network in Europe
More than 25 years ago, Spain started the development of its high speed railway network, being nowadays the longest in Europe and the second worldwide.
Thales has been a key player in this development since the beginning, providing different systems and solutions, from interlocking, ETCS, train control, communications and security systems to services.
Between Barcelona and Madrid, the time of travel in a very mountainous area has been reduced from more than 6 hours, to less than 2 and a half.
