Zeleros lays the first stone of the test track for the SELF-Booster (Sustainable Electric Freight-forwarder), a pilot project that will demonstrate Zeleros’ hyperloop technology and its application to automated and fully electric container handling.
Wabtec is tackling the challenge of reducing fine particles in tunnels on train networks through technology that drastically reduces friction brake emissions. Pollution – whether of oceans, groundwater or air – is one of the hot-button topics of our age. Reducing air pollution by car fumes has long been the primary objective of much research and development, and equally the issue of air quality in train tunnels is not a new concern.
Especially for means of transport that move millions of people every day, only the best is good enough: a wide range of approved products from FRÄNKISCHE Industrial Pipes' FIPSYSTEMS® cable protection range ensures reliable fire protection and the highest mechanical as well as dynamic load capacity for the protection of cables and wires, both inside trains and outside.
What are the key features and railway applications of the new CVS-280 DC/DC low battery voltage starter? This series is designed to operate directly from the 750V DC catenary line and can provide DC outputs from 24V to 110V at 280 Watts continuous power and 400 Watts peak power.
HS2 this week confirmed that the two enormous 2,000 tonne tunnelling machines digging the high speed rail project’s tunnels under the Chilterns have completed the first stage, up to the ventilation shaft at Chalfont St Peter.
HS2 is continuing its commitment to ‘Build the Future’ – the theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week – by recruiting for more talented individuals to play a part in the construction of Britain’s new high capacity, zero carbon railway.
