Product information

At AMURRIO FERROCARRIL Y EQUIPOS, SA, we have designed, produced and installed railway equipment since 1880, the year our company was founded in Bilbao. In 1929, we moved to a new, bigger and better equipped production facility in the neighbouring town of Amurrio. From our present facility, we have taken part in the main railway construction projects developed in Spain and in Europe throughout the 20th century.

At Amurrio we are one of the European leaders in the design and manufacture of mono block crossings in manganese steel. We develop solutions for all types of layouts, using in each case the most appropriate type of crossing for the technical and economic parameters of the project.

The objective of the development of this Environmental Declaration of Product (EPD) is to evaluate the production of the Manganese steel crossings. The crossing is the key part within the area where the lines intersect, and by extension the whole turnout. At Amurrio we are one of the European leaders in the design and manufacture of mono block crossings in manganese steel. We develop solutions for all types of layouts, using in each case the most appropriate type of crossing for the technical and economic parameters of the project. We develop manganese steel crossings with natural hardness or pre-hardened by explosion. With flash-butt welded antennae for weld-ability to the track with aluminothermic welding. For this purpose we select high quality scrap and ferroalloys and we cast these in our own electric arc furnace.
