5th UIC RailTopoModel and railML Conference – 4 November 2015, Paris

Towards a universal topology model for railways and exchange format for infrastructure

This conference will demonstrate and provide you with the results we committed ourselves to in October 2013, at the onset of the project. Based on the experiences of ten European Infrastructure Managers, and after two years of work under auspices of UIC, a generic graph railway topology and infrastructure model was presented to the railway community in

October 2014: the “RailTopoModel” to be published by UIC as an International Railway Standard by the end of 2015.

This structuring foundation is designed to support fundamental activities in infrastructure asset management and train operations. Purpose is interoperability in railway data exchange, with a high level of quality, reliability and performance while reducing costs. Means are open standards and a shared toolset:

  • A common language on business objects: rail topology at all levels (tracks, lines, corridors), multiple referencing and positioning systems (linear, geographical), installations and properties (described by spot, linear, or surface objects), routes, business events (circulations, works, incidents), etc.
  • Standard format for data exchange, based on this structuring and quality proven model : railML3®, major version from railML.org
  • A first set of Open Source Tools to ease interoperability on railway data :
    • Quality Toolbox to check quality of raiML files (sender or receiver side)
    • Geographical Viewer to visualize railML files
  • A first operational application to generate specific “RINF xml” file directly from your generic railML file, to ensure quick, low cost, errorless data provision to the European
    Register of Infrastructure of ERA.

Indeed, one generic railML data extracts from your data repository will provide the answer to most business or regulatory requirements. In addition to those operational solutions, you will be presented some business cases and ongoing projects based on those bricks.

Czech Republic: Four new traction substations in the regions of Zlín and Olomouc will ensure safer and more reliable operations on railway lines

On 24 September, the Czech Republic’s Railway Infrastructure Administration completed the construction of traction substations Říkovice, Střelná, Ústí u Vsetína and Valašské Meziříčí. The new converter stations are crucial for ensuring safety and reliable operation on the respective line sections. The need to implement these constructions resulted in particular from increasing requirements to power railway lines safely.

“The traction converter stations were equipped mostly with obsolete technology and their technical state did not correspond to European parameters and standards. The new traction converter stations will ensure a reliable power source; moreover they will increase railway operation safety as they can also partially power lines not directly adjacent to them in case of emergency”, said Mr Pavel Surý, Director General of the Railway Infrastructure Administration.

The object of all four projects is a reconstruction of separate technological equipment at traction substations and service buildings, area low tension service lines, lighting and drainage. Part of the construction also includes adapting access roads, strengthened surfaces and laying communication cables.

Complete reconstruction and modernisation of these buildings and installations contribute to increasing the traction substations’ output due to higher requirements for supplying power to feeding of railway lines. The projects’ implementation also complies with demand for increased reliability of railway transport in the given line sections in any circumstances, be it more intense operation, unfavourable climate conditions or failures of neighbouring traction substations.

The total cost of the construction designated as “Increasing traction output of Říkovice traction substation” amounts to 327,082,219 CZK (excluding VAT). The project was co-financed by the European Union’s Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Transport up to an amount of 250,188,489 CZK.

The total cost of the construction designated as “Increasing traction output of Střelná traction substation amounts to 310,287,953 CZK (excluding VAT). The project was co-financed by the European Union’s Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Transport up to an amount of 239,444,323 CZK.

The total cost of the construction designated as “Increasing traction output of Ústí u Vsetína traction substation amounts to 240,484,556 CZK (excluding VAT). The project was co-financed by the European Union’s Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Transport up to an amount of 173,842,331 CZK.

The total cost of the construction designated as “Increasing traction output of Valašské Meziříčí traction substation amounts to 233,129,226 CZK (excluding VAT). The project was co-financed by the European Union’s Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Transport up to an amount of 174,741,023 CZK.

The investor of all the construction is the Czech Republic’s Railway Infrastructure Administration, state organisation. The projects are financed nationally by the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure.

2nd UIC World Conference on Asset Management held in Paris

The 2nd UIC World Conference on Asset Management was successfully held at Paris UIC HQ from 12 – 13 October. Following the extremely high level of interest shown at the 2013 conference, this year’s edition focused on the slogan “Put your assets on the right track” and was attended by around 100 participants. The conference reflected the benefits of asset management in finding the optimum solution between costs, risks and performance for railway domains and others.

Rail continues to face a series of challenges and something of dichotomy – if there is not the need for rail services from potential customers then it is not easy to attract the levels of investment that are needed to meet the rail system’s structural challenges.

The customer is seeking attractiveness of the products that rail can offer (price, reliability etc,), coupled with good connectivity. But rail suffers when either the infrastructure or the rolling stock fail to live up to these customer expectations.

The main one is 24-hour punctuality and availability. This request is for a high level of safety, availability and control of performance, and everything is linked to Asset Management.
It is by linking all of these points together that the system becomes whole and rail can only work efficiently if it is designed, constructed, operated and maintained as a system.

Mr Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Director General, reminded the audience of UIC’s role, which is aimed at “promoting rail transport at world level, promoting interoperability and creating new world standards, proposing new ways to improve the technical and environmental performance of rail transport and finally supporting UIC members in their strategies to improve their competitiveness and business focus.

As a consequence of the European legislation, infrastructure managers and railway undertakings have to adopt a more business-like attitude: their management focus has shifted from a technical approach towards cost and performance over the long term. This alternative way of managing infrastructure is called ‘asset management’.

In addition, for rail infrastructure managers it is essential to perform a balanced trade-off between objectives, as can be illustrated by the following stakeholder interests: government (owner and financer of the infrastructure), operators (the main users of the infrastructure), local authorities, and public/customer."

This conference was a great opportunity for open, relevant, and comprehensive exchange of information between multi-sector and international organisations. In the railway sector, participants could explore the UIC Asset Management Working Group’s results and benefit from its unique experience accumulated since 2008. Participants could also learn how other industries have adopted Asset Management theories and practices in order to improve their own.

A wide range of session topics covering the whole asset management process enabled participants to get a clear view on the challenges that organisations are now facing. Best practices of the application ISO 55000 were also exchanged. The technical but important question of the right tools and models was presented, as well as relevant topics such as the impact of digitalisation and large data: it is essential to think of infrastructure as a system; innovation must be developed in order to empower people in their daily work.

Participants felt the importance of the general intent to get the best of our assets and to demonstrate it, and that the systematic approach can really make the difference: we can develop standards for all sectors.

One of the objectives of asset management is to create bridges between sectors (controlling, finance...) and time (short and long term). For infrastructure managers and suppliers it is a big challenge to address together, plus there is a need to reach out to top-level managers in the future.

For the next conference, the idea of discussing enablers together with organisational points was raised, in order to achieve greater commitment.
