The yellow machines : Future technologies for higher comfort on and along the track

The yellow machines : Future technologies for higher comfort on and along the track
Wondering what the fleet of yellow track maintenance machines from Plasser&Theurer are doing on the rail network? And how is the rail business prepared towards CO2-reduction, global footprint, noise pollution, etc.?

“CO2-reduction”, “global footprint”, “noise pollution”, etc. are common phrases that we read in newspapers more and more.

Requirements for equipment out of the last century do not match any longer with current requirements, nor with those ones needed to reduce the man-made environmental impact.

The basic vs. futuristic technical questions are: 

What equipment is actually maintaining “the track” with what kind of technologies (tamping, stabilizing, regulating)? 

How can these vehicles be modernized (improved / upgraded)? 

What kind of developments for future purposes have already been established and to what extent?

What would entrepreneurs need from the authorities in order to meet their given targets?

What are the financial, ecological and economical effects to the environment, residents, entrepreneurs and authorities/government?

Based on a master thesis and verified with data of existing on-track-machines, this presentation will let you find the answers how the rail/track/trains-business is prepared towards CO2-reduction, global footprint, noise pollution, etc.

In addition to “mechanical” solutions, digital developments have been found to be the key factor to meet and fulfil entrepreneurs and infrastructure owner’s requirements. An overview of state-of-the-art technology as well as an outlook for future available solutions will be provided.

The talk will be held in English. Q&A session will be moderated by CEO Peter Sonne, Plasser Scandinavia
