Efacec is once again selected by Infraestruturas de Portugal, S.A. (IP) to design and implement the Telematics solutions to be applied in the Modernisation of the Oeste Line – Meleças – Caldas da Rainha Section, which will contribute to greater reliability and safety of the railway system, as well as to a higher quality of service provided to the population.

In the amount of €3.35 million, the new design and construction contract will strengthen the capacity and efficiency of the rail transport service by improving availability levels and reducing journey times.

The project, which is already underway, includes two electrification contracts for the Meleças – Caldas da Rainha section, over a length of about 85km, the development and implementation of signalling systems and the construction of an electric traction substation in Runa, also awarded to Efacec.
