We suggest a mean of transport more consistent with the model of sustainable development, given its low power consumption, ability to adapt to renewable energy and its minimal pollutants of C02.

Travel responsibly with our trains and combine the pleasure of traveling with the respect to the environment.

 

LESS CO2 EMISSIONS

The railroad is the medium that carries a lower CO2 emissions per unit transported between 3 and 5 times less than traveling by road and 7 to 10 times less than traveling by plane.

 

These lower emissions are due to:


Power consumption: fuel efficient


The use of regenerative braking allows some trains back to the network between 6 and 10% of energy in high speed.


The economic driving of our trains allows energy to save up to 10% on certain routes.

 


Public transport: less energy


The railroad like other means of public transport takes less energy to make more efficient use of the positions that private transport.


These factors cause rail consumes between 2 and 5 times less than other means per unit transported.

 


Reduction of local emissions


The consumption of electricity power reduces emissions of local air pollutants, causing serious diseases, such as oxides of sulfur and nitrogen, carbon monoxide, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds, avoiding increases in pollution in cities compared to road transport.

 


Minor noise emissions


The railway noise when it occurs is punctual and less annoying than continuous noise that causes a road.

 

In the case of rail, it is possible to implement measures for combating noise, infrastructure or rolling stock.

 


Retail space occupation


The railway takes between 2 and 3 times less space per unit transported the roads . At European level, the railroad with an 8 % market takes only 2% of the occupation of territory due to transport.


Although the construction of high speed lines makes an occupation of space, these lines occupy 35 % less than a two-lane highway in each direction.
