OHLA is a benchmark in the rail industry. For more than seven decades, the company has been carrying out major infrastructure projects in America, Europe, Asia and Africa. The G&O and EyM subsidiaries, which are celebrating their 75th anniversaries this year, have been involved in many of these contracts.
G&O focuses on railway infrastructure and superstructure work, while EyM specializes in electrification and signaling for conventional, high-speed, metro and light rail lines. Both focus on railway services, being a reference in railway maintenance for both Iberian and international gauge lines.
Major global projects
Both subsidiaries have completed numerous projects in various regions. In the area of high-speed rail, G&O is participating in the first turnout renovation of a high-speed rail line in Spain, specifically the Madrid-Seville high-speed line. In addition to this project, the company also worked on the Madrid-Segovia-Valladolid High-Speed Rail Line, the new rail link to the north and northwest of Spain, and on the Girona-Figueras section of the Madrid-Barcelona-French Border High-Speed Rail Line. Also in Spain, it undertook the implementation of the railway infrastructure at the Huelva station.
In Colombia, G&O completed the infrastructure, track superstructure, and electrification of a double-track section of the Medellín Tramway, the first modern tram system in Latin America.
And in Turkey, the OHLA subsidiary carried out outstanding projects for the high-speed train between Ankara and Eskisehir.
It should be noted that EyM has participated in the largest project of the Spanish industry outside our country, the Mecca-Medina AVE, where it has built and maintained 25% of the railway electrification.
In Latin America, it is worth mentioning the work carried out by EyM on Line 3 of the Guadalajara Light Railway in Mexico, where 40 kilometers of track have been electrified.
