  • Manufacture supervision and service commencement

Over the years, Ineco has overcome significant challenges such as the commercial service commencement of trains with different technology, achieving the integration of rolling stock into the AVE system. The company has also developed the automatic variable gauge changeover system (1435–1668 mm), increased the versatility of the fleet and made trains universally accessible.

The inauguration of the Madrid–Seville high speed line coincided with the international EXPO 92 event; from that moment on, there has been continuous expansion of the AVE (Alta Velocidad Española, Spanish High Speed), one of the major milestones in Spanish railway engineering.
