Plant and machinery to support rail infrastructure renewal and maintenance for the 2020s and beyond.
European railway networks are booming and the demand for rail travel continues to increase. As the train services to meet this demand are added to the network, access to carry out maintenance and renewal work is at a premium. The pressure to do more work in shorter possessions drives a requirement for more productive, mechanized, work delivery methods. Effective, safe, and highly productive plant is an essential component of this.
Plant and the methods and strategies to deploy it that can together deliver high quality, durable infrastructure at lower unit cost is crucial to meeting industry challenges: along the way it must play its part in reducing rail sector carbon emissions and other environmental impacts, and in improving the performance and reputation of the railway.
This seminar will provide delegates and speakers with an opportunity to understand and debate the requirements for plant to meet these challenges, and the solutions that are being deployed and developed to deliver them.
Registration from 08:30 for a 09:00 start.
Call for papers – Abstracts to be submitted by 30th April 2020 to Andy Packham: firstname.lastname@example.org
