Two Valencian companies will be participating in the Project to build a high speed train from Medina to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
Torrescamara and Rover Alcisa have won a contract to build the workshops that will provide support and maintenance for the trains.
The Valencian companies will collaborate with the Spanish railway company RENFE, which has won the tender worth 60,000,000 Euros, and the Saudi construction company ATCO.
The workshops will be built at Medina, scene of many of the exploits of the mythical Lawrence of Arabia during the First World War, and will cover an area of 50,000 square metres, including 10 kilometres of tracks.
Torrescamera, which was founded in 1986, already operates in Mexico, Peru and Columbia, as does Rover Alcisa, which also works in Poland and Abu Dabi.
