The largest project in the history of the Alstom Group in Spain

12 July 2021 – Alstom has appointed Miguel Angel Martín as Managing Director for Renfe's High-Capacity suburban trains project. Miguel Angel Martín is member of the Management Committee of Alstom Spain. Cristina Anderiz will take over the management of the Santa Perpètua industrial center, as new Barcelona trains site Managing Director. 

Miguel Angel Martín took over the leadership of the High Capacity project for Renfe last March, following Renfe announcement of the award. With extensive experience in manufacturing and maintaining rolling stock and a thorough knowledge of the Santa Perpètua center, Miguel Angel Martin takes on the challenge of leading the largest project in the history of the Alstom Group in Spain.

"The High Capacity project is a real personal and professional challenge. It is an honor to lead a project that will revolutionize mobility in large cities, and that will also serve to boost industrial growth and local development, with the creation of stable employment and new industrial and innovation capacities", says Miguel Angel Martín.

With a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the UPC and studies in Business Management at the Instituto de Empresa in Madrid, Miguel Ángel Martín has 27 years of experience in the railway sector. Director of the Santa Perpètua industrial center since 2017, he was previously director of Alstom's Services unit in Spain and Portugal, as well as Managind Director for IRVIA, a 'joint venture' created by Alstom and Renfe for train maintenance.

Last March, Renfe awarded Alstom Spain a contract to supply 152 high-capacity trains for a total amount of more than €1.4 billion. The contract also includes the maintenance of 56 trains for a period of 15 years and the supply of parts for the fleet, as well as the initial stock of spare parts and their tooling. The new trains, which rely on proven platforms, will allow Renfe to transport at least 20% more passengers per hour in the country’s most congested railway hubs, including Madrid and Barcelona. They will each be 100 metres long and have a capacity of over 900 passengers. In addition, they feature an innovative mixed-configuration design, with both single and double-decker cars, designed specifically to meet the evolving mobility needs of major urban centres.
