Activities in 2019: 2019 has been a year of international growth in the market of Saudi Arabia and North Africa (Egypt), maintaining its presence in the national rail sector and in East African (based in Kampala, Uganda). The most significant public works contracts in execution during 2019 and the most outstanding advances have been:
- Saudi Arabia. Within the Haramain High Speed railway line Project between Makkah and Medina we have been involved in the procurement and installation of Sand Mitigation Walls for preventing the tracks from sand effects, we built up the sidings for emergency stops, and we have concluded the construction works for the OCC (Operation Control Center) y BOCC (Back-up Operation Control Center) buildings.
Further to the Passenger Operation Service we have continued performing the maintenance of the infrastructure and superstructure, namely carrying out the monitoring and auscultation of the infrastructure and tracks, geometric auscultation and dymnamic auscultation implemented in a high speed rolling stock (300km/h). We also have grinded the rails with specific GrinderMachines for long-lasted rails. Regarding the Preventive and Corrective Maintenance IMATHIA Construcción has a comprehensive team of high-specialized human resources, state-of-the-art machinery and equipment for the full and independent performing of the works described in the High Speed Track and infrastructure Maintenance Plan.
- Saudi Arabia. We have been going on the construction of the Depots and Workshops for the First Phase of the Makkah urban Bus transport network, in partnership with important Saudi local companies.
- Spain. We have been carrying out the maintenance works of the electrical items of the ADIF-Alta Velocidad Telecomunication Stations. Likewise we have been awarded in joint venture for the construction of the new Workshop for High Speed Rolling Stock for RENFE at Fuencarral (Madrid).
- Egypt: We have been preparing bids for track refurbishment and also we have delved into the sleeper precast market looking for alliances.
