Talgo, Scottish Enterprise and Transport Scotland have signed a jointly agreed framework for establishing Longannet as a manufacturing base for Talgo UK.
The framework agreement sets out each party’s commitment to ensure that the proposed multi-million pound factory at Longannet is prepared and delivered at an agreed time and to an agreed specification.
The Spanish train manufacturer Talgo is a leading specialised rolling stock engineering company focused on designing, manufacturing and servicing fast, lightweight trains.
Paul Lewis, Executive Director at Scottish Enterprise said: “This Framework Agreement is another significant milestone in our work with Talgo to achieve its ambition of establishing a world-class, high-value manufacturing facility at Longannet.
“Scottish Enterprise and our partners are incredibly excited by Talgo’s plans for Longannet, which would deliver 1,000 direct jobs and a host of supply chain opportunities for companies in Scotland.”
