With the separation of infrastructure and operations, the registering and billing of effective energy consumption on trains is becoming increasingly important. In public tendering, energy efficiency and energy costs get higher attention. ENOTRAC is active in various fields:
ÖBB Infrastruktur AG has developed an energy measurement system together with partner firms, which records the energy consumption of trains on motor vehicles and periodically sends the data to a central database. Based on the captured data the operators are charged accordingly for their energy costs.
Under contract from ÖBB, ENOTRAC is responsible for the retrofit engineering of the “RailwayBox” and “RailpowerBox” on various locomotive types (including the BLS AG Re 485, types 182 and 189 from Siemens and the type 13 from Alstom). The remit includes the provision of the technical documentation for the refit of the systems in the workshop.
Furthermore, ENOTRAC provides support services to BLS and ÖBB for re-homologation of the vehicles in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and in Italy based on the common safety methods (CSM).
For the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (MGBahn) ENOTRAC was responsible for analysing the energy consumption of its rolling stock fleet. As a basis for the elaboration of possible energy saving measures energy consumption figures for the decisive parts of the vehicle fleet are determined.
The determination of the figures is based both on simulations and on data analysis of energy meters that were installed on certain vehicles. Based on the performed analyzes MGBahn disposes of specific energy consumption figures for each train type and lines, which reflect the actual energy consumption during operation
ENOTRAC has supported the customer VRR (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr) in complex questions concerning energy consumption and energy efficiency within the scope of three different vehiclerolling stock procurements.
