5G pilot project launched in Galicia


Today, the project "5G Pilot in Galicia", promoted by the Ministry of Economy and Business through, was presented. This is one of the two pilot projects involving 5G technology that the Government has promoted for the development of this technology in Spain, through a public announcement of subsidies with co-financing from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in charge of the Pluriregional Operational Programme of Spain (POPE).

Ineco is collaborating actively on two of the pilot projects presented today:

  • Driving assistance in the O Cereixal tunnel (Lugo) to test new services that will improve the safety of vehicles through the tunnel (warning of weather conditions at the exit or anomalies inside, among others).
  • Supervision of railway infrastructure with Adif and Ineco (in Orense) using camera-equipped drones that collect images of the tracks to facilitate inspection and maintenance.

The ceremony for the presentation of the project was held in Vigo, in the Museum of Contemporary Art, and was presided by the acting Minister of Economy and Companies, Nadia Calviño. The president of the Xunta de Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo; the mayor of Vigo, Abel Caballero; the acting Secretary of State for Digital Advancement, Francisco Polo, and the CEO of Telefónica Spain, María Jesús Almazor, among other authorities, also participated in the presentation. Eva Pulido, Ineco's General Manager of Organization and Resources, represented our company at the event, accompanied by Ignacio Martínez, Deputy Director of Information Technologies and Javier Carvajal, the Project Manager for the project.
