Digitization on railroad vegetation management

We’ve automated tasks on the field and generated alerts to optimize daily tasks using an AI-based program.

Vegetation growth on railroads can cause fires or damage the infrastructure, which has motivated our setting in motion a new project to digitize activities and automate field work on the rail facilities included in the ADIF contract awarded to Valoriza, in a joint venture with Servicios Industriales y Transportes.

Vegetation management via this system will be done on conventional railroad lines and on the meter-gauge rail network in Southern Spain, more specifically in 11 provinces: Almería, Badajoz, Cáceres, Cádiz, Ciudad Real, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga and Sevilla. 

The aim of railroad vegetation management is to keep railways and platform areas and transition zones clear of vegetation.



This way, we can obtain information about the activities performed in real time by the different teams working on vegetation management to achieve a completely digital workflow. 

This platform, based on GIS (Geographic Information System) technology brings new functions and advantages to the table. 

Field work automation and real-time report digitization helps achieve the full working digital cycle and automated certifications. 

These tools allow to analyze and view the data efficiently, with precise and up-to-date data, and detect any anomalies in the tasks performed, activities or teams. 

The platform also uses artificial intelligence algorithms to identify data patterns and trends and can create alerts for more agile decision-making.

Reports can be filled in, reviewed, and sent from any mobile device, reducing working times, mistakes, and costs associated to manual work and paperwork. 

Automated works can be certified, ensuring the quality and integrity of the data. 



Sustainable Development Goals

Sacyr’s commitment to sustainability and innovation is the core foundation of this Valoriza contract that contributes to the fulfilment of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 9, which includes the development of dependable, sustainable, resilient, and quality infrastructure.
