After four days of intense activity, BcnRail, the International Railway Industry Show held in Barcelona, has closed its doors after a very successful turnout. Over 6,400 visitors attended the most international edition of a show which, in its third edition, received 120 exhibitors, 40% of which were of international origin.
As a leading company in the railway sector, COMSA EMTE took a very active role in BcnRail. At its stand, the company presented its broad offer for the sector, which ranges from construction, exploitation and maintenance of railway infrastructure, freight railway transport and communications solutions and electrification for railway infrastructures.
The Manager of the Knowledge Management and Technological Innovation Department Joan Peset, discussed the Group’s most innovating projects in matters of risk prevention, while Raúl Blánquez, Manager of Software Solutions at EMTE Sistemas, participated in a forum on facilities and systems integration, and discussed the company’s experience in solutions for operating light trams and metros.
With regards the future, the representatives of the railway industry present at BcnRail aim to promote public and private collaboration in order to find a solution to the current situation of budget restriction by Public Administrations. This is a formula that, according to the sector, permits the construction of new infrastructures, and which has already been adopted in projects such as the Tranvía de Barcelona, with the participation of COMSA EMTE.
