German company Siemens AG wants in on Mexico’s Maya Train

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — German company Siemens AG has expressed interest in participating in the construction of the Maya Train megaproject.

Siemens AG, a German conglomerate company and the largest industrial manufacturing company in Europe, says they are interested in the project, incorporating state-of-the-art technology to guarantee a comfortable, automated train that is always on time, making it one of the most modern and technologically advanced.

Juan Ignacio Díaz, CEO of Siemens for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, says their company provides technology ranging from connectors, control boxes and isolated equipment to complete trains or infrastructure and intends to participate in the construction of the Maya Train.

Ignacio Díaz says “We can participate in the whole chain, from the generation of energy, transmission, electrification of roads and signaling, to the physical part of trains, automation and digitalization.

“There could also be other benefits, and that is the use of Siemens technology in European trains allows up to 30 percent savings in electricity and warm up in start-up and braking,” he said.

He noted that the company has recently won a tender for the Russian Moscow-Kaza project that will extend to Beijing, China and use new magnetic levitation Maglev engines, which can reach a speed of up to 300 kilometers per hour and save on energy, which he adds, can be extended in the way of a discounted passenger ticket.
