WHAT DOES GRT DO?
GRT is a company specialised in the improvement of energy efficiency in the railway sector and in hence on the reduction of emissions. GRT currently focusses on metro systems.
Contrary to most companies, we employ this specialist knowledge in a holistic way to provide our customers with optimal solutions for their unique problems. This means that we regard trains or tracks not in isolation, but as part of a system which needs to be designed to optimise energy efficiency. Likewise, stationary infrastructure needs to be designed in a manner which explicitly considers the performance and configuration of the train.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE
Green Railway Technologies Ltd. has expertise in the following areas:
TRACK SUBSTATION DESIGN
It is the combined expertise of our experts’ knowledge which allows us to come up with new ways of setting up more efficient systems.
A typical GRT project starts with an in-depth conversation with the client, who informs us about their intentions. What is the overall status at the moment? What is the target?
GRT will ask the client to prepare a list of documents as well as making the premises available. Experienced, senior GRT staff will examine these documents and visit the client premises. A discussion with the client’s technical experts is often desirable to understand which actions/efforts have been undertaken already to achieve the desired target.
ASSESSMENT AND VERIFICATION
Based on these first findings we will then make an assessment of the potential to improve energy efficiency / reduce the environmental impact. We may want to carry out a deeper investigation, which may include some measurements on site to verify our hypothesis. Based on this data, we can then ensure that our proposal will meet the designated targets.
Our proposal will comprise designated changes to the infrastructure/trains as well as the expected impact, but will be discussed with the client. Changes may occur to accommodate particular clients needs.
GRT will not only elaborate the technical solution, but -if desired- finance the necessary change in the infrastructure as well. In this case, we work on a performance based contract.
We are happy to participate in the implementation or even lead it altogether to ensure that all necessary changes are carried out in an adequate and timely manner. In addition to the system design for the improvements, we also collaborate with our partners for the manufacture of the state of the art products which fit the particular requirements needed to provide an outstanding solution. We collaborate with re-knowned manufacturers to ensure state-of-the-art technology and reliability.
REAPING THE BENEFITS
Once the agreed upon solution is implemented, we jointly observe the results with our client and make adaptations should the need arise.
