Haramain Talgo reaches 330 km/h during its testing process

(13/07/2017) 

The tests have been performed gradually from 180 to 330 km/h, exceeding with this last mark by 10% the maximum operating speed, which will be 300 km/h.

The fact that the train has reached its maximum speed during the testing process means an approach to the objective of Demonstration of Passenger Service included in the Settlement Agreement signed by the Mecca-Medina High Speed Spanish Consortium with the Saudi Government on 19 May 2017.

The consortium, which is in charge of the design, construction, maintenance and operation of the Haramain High Speed Railway project that will link Mecca and Medina, comprises 12 Spanish companies: the public companies Adif, Ineco and Renfe and the private firms Cobra, Consultrans, Copasa, Imathia, Inabensa, Indra, OHL, Siemens Rail Automation and Talgo, to which two Saudi companies, Al Shoula and Al Rosan, are also added.
