The Haramain High Speed Railway project is an inter-city rail transport system in Saudi Arabia. The railway service links Makkah (Mecca) and Madinah (Medina) allowing passengers to travel to Jeddah and Jeddah Airport.
The project consists of a high-speed electrified passenger line with an operational speed of 300 Km/h. The railway link utilises state-of-the-art technology to provide a fast, comfortable, reliable and safe mode of transport.
The track, rolling stock and stations are designed to handle extreme temperatures ranging from 0 °C to 50 °C and to support the management of these temperatures, Kingspan Duct and Pipe Insulation were installed as part of this innovative infrastructure project. Kingspan Klargester Fuel and Oil Separators were also supplied to the stations to prevent hydrocarbons being discharged to the local watercourse.
Each station contains a mosque, civil defence fire station and short and long term car park. For those seeking an extra touch of luxury, every station has a helipad, along with VIP lounges, shops and restaurants.
