The Line 2 is a partially completed future tram and metro line that is foreseen to form part of the Metrovalencia in the city of Valencia. The line runs through a total of 18 stations (8 underground) and is estimated to be used by 25.2 million passengers a year. The line crosses the city center through a 1,584 m tunnel, part of which is split into a two twin tunnels.

 

This lines serves important points within the city, including the City of Arts and Sciences and the historical city center. This second stretch was executed with an EPB tunnel boring machine and was of particular importance due to the delicate conditions. Responsibilities included the alternative study and the Detailed Design of this project.

Sydney CBD Metro Sydney, Australia

Complex tender design phase for this multi billion dollar PPP project. The proposal for the first stage of the CBD Metro was for a 7km long underground rail line from Rozelle to Central, providing high-frequency metro services to new stations at Rozelle, Pyrmont, Barangaroo- Wynyard, Martin Place, Town Hall Square and Central (with provision for a future station at White Bay). To achieve the project tender timelines (which incorporated Christmas) and provide the consortium with a competitive advantage, it was identified from the outset that two design teams would be required. With teams based in both Sydney and Melbourne, this strategy ensured that the consortium received design information rapidly, assisting with optimisation of the design solution. A key feature was the risk workshops. These workshops brought all project parties together and benefited the project by ensuring that the team had a collective understanding of the risks and mitigation

  Structural design engineering of the glazing system and the tensioned cable structure of the two atria which are located at both end of the Mass rapid Transit (MRT) Station box adjacent to Terminal 2 and the proposed Terminal 3 Changi Airport. The purpose of the Atria is to cover the links between the above ground airport terminals and below ground station, keeping weather out. The atria allow as much light in as possible and the facades to the Atria appear as transparent as possible with due consideration to the climate inside. Each atrium is approximately 60m long by 20m wide by 36m high from base level. A 6m x 8m x 300mm thick reinforced concrete stair core rises from foundation level in one corner of each Atria. The core supports a 4.5m deep x 1.5m wide x 100mm thick tapered propped cantilever spine beam. The spine beam is supported at the other end by an ‘A’ frame column and stability truss. Secondary structural tie ‘rib beams’ spring from the spine beam each at 3cm centers. These rib beams which form a point at the façade end support prestressed cable façade trusses. These 1.2m deep lightweight façade trusses spaced at 3m centre around the perimeter of the atria are tensioned all the way to the ground where they are anchored. The glass façade is supported off these trusses.

Central Subway Hong Kong

The Central Subway is part of the Airport Railway project. It serves as an efficient and essential pedestrian link connecting the existing MTR Central Station with the new Hong Kong Station. The subway passes beneath Pedder Street, Connaught Road Central, Exchange Square and Harbour View Street. The link is a key element in the Airport Railway's function in relieving the congested Tsuen Wan Line. It has a capacity to carry 40,000 passengers during the peak hours. The Central Subway is a fully air conditioned subway with horizontal passenger conveyors along most of its length and lifts for disabled passengers provided in both Hong Kong and Central Stations. The Central Subway also included a condenser water circuit from Admiralty and Central Stations to a new sea water cooled heat rejection system within Hong Kong Station. The Subway was constructed from the road surface using the "Cut and Cover" construction method as it is too wide for tunnelling methods. The relatively narrow adits beneath Exchange Square were constructed by tunnelling methods whilst Douglas Street Entrance employed open cut construction. The project received a High Commendation in the British Construction Industry Awards.

Facts

The tunnel between Atocha and Chamartin connects the south and east high speed lines, improving the exploitation model of the two main stations in Madrid. The excavation method employed was, essentially by EPB TBM, except for a section that was bored using the German method. The tunnel is approximately 7.3 kilometers long, 6.9 km of which were built underground, making it easier to integrate it with the systems of the urban areas. The line has a speed of 120 km/h. It is a double gauge diameter tunnel for double track UIC (1.435 mm). The tunnel has 9 emergency exits and 3 ventilation shafts.

  Medellin Metro, serving the cities of its growing metropolitan area (Aburra Valley), has extended its Line A. To provide the service for this section, it acquired new rolling stock (12 units), each comprised of three coaches (two of which locomotives) and required a consultant to assure the quality of the rolling stock, from the design to the commissioning. Our expertise covered the supervision of the design, manufacturing and operational readiness of these 12 new trains, as well as the manufacturing, commissioning, installation and operational readiness of the onboard ATC systems of the 24 locomotives.

 

Medellin Metro Rolling Stock Supervision

Renfe has been undertaking for the last years the renewal of the rolling stock on lines C-3 and C-4 of Madrid’s Commuter Rail network. Renfe, as the network’s main operator, selected CAF-Siemens and Alstom to design and manufacture these vehicles. CIVIA units are the most recently developed and modern train of this system, and are divided in Series I, II, III and IV. Services include supporting RENFE in the manufacturing inspection of several CIVIA units corresponding to the four series: CIVIA I (14 units), CIVIA III (80 units), CIVIA II (80 units) and CIVIA IV (60 units). They are conceived as modular trains and can be configured from two to five coaches per unit. All are equipped with ASFA Digital signaling system, and ERTMS is being installed on them.

Inspection of new CIVIA units for Madrid Commuter Rail Spain

 

The monitoring and inspection during the manufacturing phase (fabrication, upon the train’s completion, tests at factory) was undertaken by our experts, as well as the development of further tests on test track and operational readiness of the units.

Maintenance of the Mediterranean and Levante High Speed Corridor Spain

 

Maintenance of the High Speed Line Network

The Levante Corridor connects Madrid with the Mediterranean coast, while the Mediterranean Corridor (1.300Km approximately) runs parallel to the Eastern Spanish Coast. Trains on these corridors run with an average speed of 200 220 km/h. The section has both freight and long-haul passenger services, thus generating an intense traffic along the line. The objective is to allow massive freight traffic between Spain and the rest of the Europe. Ineco has been working on the maintenance of these corridors since 1995. The main principles for this activity have been to obtain a correct diagnosis guaranteeing the maintenance of the track’s parameters, as well as the use of the adequate topography and machinery. The principal work developed by the team has been the supervision of line adaptation works in order to get a speed of 200 km/h in those stretches whose maximum speed was 160 Km/h. Furthermore, the team continuously works to update the inventories related to the lines where it renders its services.
