The Australasian Railway Association (ARA) has released its new Sustainability Guide to support the rail industry as it moves towards a net zero future.
‘On Track to a Sustainable Future – Australasian Railway Association Sustainability Guide’ was produced in partnership with ARUP and released at the AusRAIL Plus 2023 conference in Sydney.
The guide uses best practice case studies to demonstrate how operators, track owners, and manufacturers are working with suppliers to deliver a range of improved outcomes. Trapeze Rail’s DAS is featured on page 34 as an example of decarbonisation best practice.
The case study showcases our Driving Advice System (DAS) implementation for New Zealand’s largest rail transport operator, KiwiRail. The impact made by DAS was so immediate that KiwiRail’s 2020 target to reduce energy consumption by 20 GWh was achieved four years early, prompting the organisation to increase this 2020 target to 73.5 GWh.
