EN13674-1 60E1 steel rail, also known as UIC60 steel rail, is a wide track type steel rail developed according to the European standard EN13674-1, widely used in high-speed railways, heavy-duty railways, and urban rail transit and other railway projects. According to different usage conditions, the steel rail can be produced according to different hardness levels, such as R260HB and R350HT. R260HB is a type of steel rail that has undergone ordinary heat treatment and is suitable for railway lines under normal conditions; R350HT is a high hardness steel rail that has undergone heat treatment, suitable for heavy-duty or high-speed operating conditions.
As an important part of the European railway network, Spain has a vast railway system, including an extensive high-speed railway (AVE) network and regional railway (Cercan í as) services. In recent years, the Spanish government has actively promoted the construction and upgrading of railway infrastructure, resulting in an increasing demand for railway rails.
Spanish railway construction tends to use materials with high wear resistance and durability when selecting rail hardness, so R350HT hardness steel rails are more favored. However, due to its relatively low cost, R260HB still has a certain market for some railway lines that do not require ultra-high durability.
Spanish railway projects usually choose appropriate lengths of steel rails based on engineering characteristics and construction needs. The 12 to 25 meter rail length option provided by the supplier allows for more flexible application of railway tracks in different railway projects. In addition, customized services are also crucial for meeting special engineering needs.
For the Spanish market, the minimum order quantity set by the supplier is 500 tons, which is conducive to ensuring production efficiency while reducing transportation and storage costs. For large railway projects, this order quantity is usually met.
In terms of logistics distribution, suppliers are able to directly transport steel rails to major ports in Spain, such as BALBOA, which provides great convenience for the supply of materials for various railway projects in Spain, reducing intermediate links and transportation costs.
With the continuous development and upgrading of the Spanish railway network, the market demand for EN13674-1 60E1 steel rail is expected to continue to grow. Suppliers can better meet the needs of the Spanish market and seize market opportunities by providing steel rails with different hardness levels, flexible length selection, minimum order quantity, and convenient logistics services. At the same time, we will continue to monitor the dynamics and trends of railway construction in Spain, providing guidance for future market supply and services.
