Spearheading the mobility transition to improve the way the world moves
Railways are one of the most efficient and sustainable methods of transporting both passengers and goods. In the Netherlands, rail traffic is expected to increase by 30% by 2030-2040 (source: ProRail) - making railways a crucial part in the future of our growing and rapidly changing mobility needs. In addition to trains, buses, trams and metros are part of the mobility mix that provides comprehensive 'door-to-door' mobility solutions. Rail-related transport supplements these services – thus making an important contribution to an effectively functioning transport system for the Netherlands, across the EU and beyond.
So, how do we ensure this ever-changing mobility system meets the requirements of future generations? How can railways make an even greater contribution to the transition towards safe and sustainable transportation of passengers and goods? How will stations and interchanges develop into sustainable intermodal mobility hubs? And finally, how can digital technology go above and beyond to achieve all this? For answers to all of these questions and more, come to RailTech Europe 2022 and engage with our team!
Meet our Rail & Mobility Hubs team
Our team will also be discussing new opportunities for sustainability and circularity concerning the design and construction of new rail and metro connections and stations, the role of cycling and the implementation of battery and hydrogen-powered trains, including the infrastructure these new systems will require.
It’s no secret that digitisation and data-driven systems are factors that play a vital role in infrastructure development, and the transport sector is certainly no exception. We’ll demonstrate the use of Digital Twin technology to resolve capacity constraints and improve the performance of the rail system. We will also provide insights into the challenges of noise pollution and vibration, discuss issues surrounding ground stability and traction energy, as well as share the latest developments in the field of optimising maintenance and improving the use of switching and shunting yards. Our experts will also be at hand to dive deeper into the implementation of European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and Automatic Train Operation (ATO) in the Netherlands.
Visit our stand (4.005) at RailTech in Utrecht to gain insight into how we are spearheading the mobility transition to ensure greener logistical supply chains and safe, sustainable passenger transport. Our Rail and Mobility Hubs team is looking forward to meeting you!
