OHLA and its subsidiary, Construcciones Adolfo Sobrino, have been awarded the project for the construction of the new railway passenger station in Irún (Basque Country, Spain). The contract, awarded by Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias (Railroad Infrastructure Management, ADIF in Spanish) for more than 65 million euros (VAT included), includes a new building constructed over the tracks that will house the various passenger transport services at the station (commuter, medium and long distance lines), the reorganization of the existing tracks and the integration of the building into the environment, demolishing the current passenger building and other technical buildings on the platforms.

The new building, designed as a bridge-like piece, will span the ten train tracks and connect to the city at its western end via a new plaza that will include amenities for sustainable mobility. It will also have an A energy rating (for non-renewable energy consumption and emissions) and a solar energy collection system on the large roof, consisting of 180 photovoltaic panels connected to the grid.
