HUPAC awards IDP the construction project of the new intermodal terminal in la Llagosta (Barcelona)

HUPAC GROUP has awarded IDP the construction project of ADIF’s Intermodal Terminal in La Llagosta, province of Barcelona, a key strategic logistics node in the international transport of goods by rail.

The intermodal operator HUPAC, together with TPNova, will be in charge of the management of the multimodal logistics node of La Llagosta (Barcelona), which is part of ADIF’s network of strategic railway nodes.

Located 15 km from Barcelona, La Llagosta is configured as a fully interoperable high-capacity node, which will boost rail transport on the Mediterranean axis and its area of influence.

The facilities have a surface area of more than 105,000 m2, of which 85,200 m2 correspond to the intermodal freight terminal, which has four tracks for handling UTIs and other services related to freight logistics. In addition, 19,800 m2 are for other uses related to intermodal activity, and an office building.

The new intermodal terminal will become a benchmark for the treatment of freight trains with an interoperable standard length of 750 meters, compatible with the rest of the European rail networks, and also a fully interoperable node of high capacity, sustainable and efficient, which will boost rail transport in an area of great socio-economic potential.

The services contracted to IDP cover the design of the Intermodal Terminal Management building and its facilities, the urbanization with service connections, the installation of gantry cranes, access control, OCR gantries and the required terminal facilities.
