Reducing Life Cycle Costs And Increasing Reliability Of Overhead Line & Railway Electrification Infrastructure Assets Across Installation, Maintenance And Renewal
With Billions being invested on railway electrification projects across Europe, can you afford to miss the opportunity to validate your electrification system designs and pending procurement decisions with some of the most knowledgeable individuals in the industry?
Amidst spiralling global fuel costs, government mandates for CO2 reduction, and the critical extent of rail traffic density for meeting increases in capacity demands, electrification work on Europe’s mainline railways is well underway. But what has been learned across the multiple projects in Europe that can make today’s electrification schemes easier to implement and better value for money?
Today’s system design and procurement decisions will clearly have cost and reliability implications for the entire life cycle of the infrastructure. Therefore ensuring the most fit for purpose and robust components are implemented, alongside optimal strategies for maintenance and renewals, will be crucial to securing long-term reliability, efficiency and cost savings.
The Cost Optimisation Electrification Infrastructure Congress 2012, offers you a valuable opportunity to capitalise on this industry knowledge to enable you to benchmark best practices, approaches and methods of working for delivering the most cost effective railway electrification throughout the whole life cycle of the infrastructure.
Featuring 20+ carefully selected Directors, Department Heads, and Chief Engineers from major European infrastructure owner/operators, this is your opportunity to hear cutting-edge case studies and share first-hand experiences in an environment that promotes candid debate on identifying the most feasible methods for minimising life cycle costs while maximising efficiency, performance, and reliability.
Opening with a UK Keynote address from Robbie Burns, Director for Major Projects at Network Rail, Day One addresses the issues of system design on both a strategic and a technical level. Assessing the broader system design visions in a context of engineering solutions for a robust infrastructure with an analysis of key cost reducers, then continuing with an in-depth analysis of electrification asset design and a focus on improving access. The day culminates with a series of sessions on increasing efficiencies through design integration.
Day Two investigates engineering solutions for contributing to the proactive and predictive maintenance of electrification assets, also exploring today's most efficient and effective design of power distribution systems. The day commences with a strategic focus on optimising asset management strategies for managing costs, continuing with insights on intelligent diagnostics for predictive maintenance.
