Aldesa - Aldesa to build the Vitoria-Gasteiz intermodal and logistics platform

Aldesa wins an Adif contract valued at 27.4 million euros


The Aldesa Group has added a new contract in the railway sector for an amount of 27.4 million euros. The Coalvi-Aldesa tandem – both companies are part of the Group – will carry out the construction works of the intermodal and logistics platform in Júndiz (Vitoria) and its standard gauge connection to the Atlantic Corridor in its first phase with an estimated execution period of 16 months.

Adif’s board of directors has awarded the Group the first phase of a project that will progressively transform the Júndiz intermodal and logistics platform into an interoperable logistics platform and the first in Spain to be connected in standard gauge to the Atlantic corridor.

The project includes the extension of the number of tracks in the technical installation from three to four, and mixed gauge will be implemented on two of them. It also contemplates a new intermodal module with two buffer-stop tracks, mixed gauge and ballastless tracks, served by gantry cranes, and new road accesses to the intermodal terminal. The current turnouts will be replaced with mixed gauge turnouts that will be valid for future phases of terminal expansion. The new intermodal module will maintain the current buffer-stop track 9 next to the concrete slab, also for container loading and unloading, served by means of a reach stacker. The tracks of the technical installation will exceed 750 meters in useful length, while the length of the yard will be 460 meters.

The Aldesa Group has extensive experience in the execution of railway projects both nationally and internationally. It is currently carrying out the extension of the Bratislava tramway, in Slovakia, for 74.6 million euros. In Poland, it is involved in the reconstruction of a 50-kilometer section of railway line no. 38 Ełk – Korsze, which, with a contract value of 69.8 million euros, may reach up to 144.2 million euros by incorporating two extension options at the client’s request. In Spain, it has carried out several projects on the Mediterranean Corridor, including a 62–kilometer section in the province of Tarragona, for more than 110 million euros.
