Heading to Climate Conference COP23 – UIC took the “Train to Bonn”

A UIC delegation was invited to board the “Train to Bonn” dedicated train, coordinated by Deutsch Bahn on 4 November 2017. UIC was represented by a small delegation including its Director General, Jean-Pierre Loubinoux.

The event welcomed on board politicians such as Dr Barbara Hendricks, Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety as well as DB employees, non-profit organisations and representatives of the private sector as well as international organisations like UIC. The “Train to Bonn” was organised with different coaches with a specific conference area in the centre. Throughout the day speakers from different countries took the floor in front of an active audience.

Dr Richard Lutz, CEO of Deutsche Bahn AG, presented DB commitments to fight climate change, including: fifty percent less CO2 emitted by 2030 and long-distance transport to use 100% renewable power starting in 2018. “There is one mother earth, take action now”, he said.

Apart from transport commitments, the train was also the opportunity to raise awareness about oceans – the important theme this year under the Fiji presidency of COP23, in the presence on board of Tafue Lusama, President of Red Cross society of Tuvalu and Frances Namoumou, from the Pacific Church Council. Representatives of the Fiji islands and spokespersons from the Pacific islands presented their views on the urgency of actions to fight climate change and prevent the rise of sea levels.

Topics from effects of climate change to resilience, mitigation and adaptation were debated, as well as corporate and public partnerships, and insurance aspects and actions on the ground, in the face of climate change in developed and developing countries.

UIC took the opportunity during this trip to emphasise UIC’s global perspective on the importance of railways in the fight against climate change. UIC acknowledged the announcement as well regarding DB setting new ambitious climate protection targets ahead of COP23. Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, General Director of UIC said about this news: “that those targets are a perfect fit and compliment the UIC targets.” UIC declared major collaborations in 2017, one with the International Energy Agency with the annual publication of the Railway Handbook and the collaboration with the International Railway Journal for a Global Register of Modal Shift projects. After stressing the importance of investment in rail, Jean-Pierre Loubinoux reminded the audience of the successful work of UIC in the discussion around mitigation and especially adaptation with dedicated workshops in London, Beijing and Agadir in 2017.

UIC Director General concluded his speech by wishing a successful two weeks to all negotiators for this COP23 “where the interests of all the people of the world come together”.

UIC issues yearly report 2017 on railway accidents in Europe

Accident numbers stabilise: UIC’s Safety Index ranking improves

UIC has published its annual report on railway accidents in Europe. UIC’s safety database has been collecting data since 2001 and currently covers 22 UIC members, representing 89% of the rail network within the European Economic Area (EU and EFTA). The database is managed by UIC’s Safety Unit. As well as serving as a depository for statistical information on accidents, it also offers extensive insight into the causes, circumstances and consequences of accidents and aligns with the classifications and definitions used in European regulations.

Rail transport is the safest mode of land transport, and is improving continuously in terms of safety. Accidents and numbers of victims have been reduced by a third in the decade 2007-2016 thanks to the efforts of the rail community to improve safety in the sector.

Accident typology in 2016
52% of accidents were caused by trespassing on railway infrastructure, and 24% were caused by accidents at level crossings. 7% of accidents involved people being hit on a platform or falling from a train or platform. Only 13% of the significant accidents recorded in UIC’s safety database were attributed to internal causes relating to technical or organisational failures or human factors within the rail operation system; the remainder were caused by weather and environmental conditions.

More than ever, third parties are responsible for most accidents. People take life-threatening risks due to negligence, distraction, recklessness, carelessness, laziness or a sense of urgency. This is a major issue for the rail network; third parties accounted for 95% of the 900 fatalities recorded in 2016. It is imperative that public authorities play their part in promoting education and raising awareness of risk, and continue their efforts to protect the railways from uncivil behaviour by third parties, just as they have done for the road transport sector for many years.

Collisions between trains and derailments
130 train collisions and derailments were recorded per year, on average, between 2010 and 2014. 89 such events were recorded in 2015. This figure decreased to 70 in 2016, representing 4% of all significant accidents. Two collisions between trains in Belgium and Germany and a derailment in Spain resulted in 12 passenger deaths - more than half of the number of passenger deaths recorded in 2016.

UIC Global Safety Index
UIC’s Global Safety Index (GSI) not only provides statistics on numbers of accidents; each accident is weighted according to cause, type, frequency and victim category. This approach enables deeper insight into general safety levels, considered separately from rare, high-impact events.

Although accident numbers stabilised between 2015 and 2016, the GSI is decreasing steadily, indicating continuous improvement in rail transport safety levels in Europe.

Members of the UIC Safety Database
ADIF (Spain), ADIF-AV (Spain), CFL (Luxembourg), CFR-SA (Romania), DB AG (Germany), Eurotunnel (France and UK), HZ (Croatia), Network Rail (UK), Infrabel (Belgium), IP (Portugal), BANE NOR SF (Norway), MAV (Hungary), ÖBB (Austria), PKP (Poland), ProRail (Netherlands), SNCF Réseau (France), FS RFI (Italy), SBB CFF FFS (Switzerland), SZ (Slovenia), SZDC (Czech Republic), Trafikverket (Sweden), ZSR (Slovakia)

Reminder: 5th Training on High Speed level II from 13 – 17 November 2017 in Madrid

The 5th Training on High Speed level II will take place next week in Madrid.
Registration is still possible and previous attendance to level I is not necessary. There is a special price for Intercity and High-Speed Committee members.

This Training Session aims to examine all the elements that make up high speed systems (as well as all the different types of systems included in this category) and to gauge their impact impartially and objectively from a technical, economic, political and social point of view.

The II level of this training is especially practical thanks to the group dynamics and case studies conducted with the High-Speed Planner, a tool specially designed by the Spanish Railway Foundation for this training and that will enable participants to simulate a High-Speed System.

However, the advantages of this training session are the technical visits to Talgo HQ, and to strategic points on the Spanish high-speed network (the largest one in the world after China’s).

Under the moderation of the prestigious expert Mr Michel Leboeuf, Honorific Chairman of the Intercity and High-Speed Committee, the speakers will be all experts in the subjects addressed and are drawn mainly from railways, universities and the supply industry.

There are still a few days left to register – join us in this unique training programme by clicking on the online link

Germany: Fifty percent less CO2 emitted by 2030

Long distance transport to use 100 percent renewable power starting in 2018

DB sets new climate protection target ahead of UN Climate Change Convention in Bonn

DB’s CEO Lutz: “Rail travel equals climate protection”

Deutsche Bahn has set itself a new, ambitious climate protection target. “By 2030 we will have reduced specific CO2 emissions worldwide by at least fifty percent. This is a major step toward becoming a completely climate-neutral group, which we will be in 2050,” said Dr. Richard Lutz, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of Deutsche Bahn, in Berlin ahead of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change taking place in Bonn on November 6-17, 2017. “Rail travel equals climate protection. Rail is already the most climate-friendly mode of transport and we are continuing to expand this environmental advantage. Nothing less than the future of successive generations is at stake. That is why we are amplifying our efforts and responding actively to climate change and its impact.”

The next milestone is being targeted by DB Long Distance, in that every passenger will travel using 100 percent renewable power on and after January 1, 2018. As a result, some 140 million passengers annually will travel entirely CO2-free. Previously, this was only the case for holders of BahnCards or monthly and annual passes and passengers who had paid an additional euro for green energy on each leg of their journey. Since 2013, DB Long Distance has invested around 100 million euros in sustainable wind and hydroelectric power purchased in addition to regular energy. Deutsche Bahn intends to increase the share of power it uses from renewable sources in all of its rail operations (local, regional, long distance and freight), from 42 percent currently to 70 percent by 2030.

It was already a goal under the DB2020+ Group strategy to reduce CO₂ emissions by 30 percent by 2020, relative to 2006 levels. The tangible and constant increase in renewable energy’s share in the traction current mix in particular is expected to lead to further reductions.

Deutsche Bahn has now launched the “Das ist grün” ("This is green") marketing campaign. More than 100 projects, addressing such wide-ranging topics as green long distance travel, biodiversity conservation and biodegradable workwear, are being presented in publications, at stations and on trains. By these means, DB is demonstrating the ecological nature of its products and services in all their diversity for the first time.

United Kingdom: Network Rail awards contracts to two alliances as industry supports Partnership for Britain’s Prosperity

As the industry launches its plan to Partner for Britain’s Prosperity, Network Rail has awarded contracts to two Alliances ahead of future rail enhancements on the Transpennine Route between York and Manchester.

The Transpennine Route Upgrade aims to deliver faster, longer, more frequent and more reliable services across the north of England, from Newcastle, Hull and York towards Manchester and Liverpool via Leeds.

Network Rail and the Alliances are working collaboratively from the earliest stages on the development of potential infrastructure options for the Transpennine Route Upgrade and will submit these options to the Department for Transport (DfT) for consideration in December of this year.

This programme is part of the Great North Rail Project, a huge part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan, and demonstrates the rail industry working as one on the plan to deliver upgrades and enhancements that will benefit passengers, communities and economies across the Pennines.

Paul McKeown, Director of Route Sponsorship for Network Rail’s London North Eastern and East Midlands route, said: “We are focussed on developing the potential infrastructure enhancements that will lead to faster, more frequent and more reliable train services across the north and will submit these to the Department for Transport at the end of the year.”

Tim Ketteringham, Alliance Manager, West of Leeds, said: “The Transpennine Route Upgrade is a major programme of rail improvement that will have a real and lasting impact on people and communities in the North of England for generations to come: connecting towns and cities, improving journey times and supporting economic growth. I am thrilled to be part of the Alliance of companies that is working together as one team to deliver this step change in rail travel.”

Neil Lindley, Alliance Manager, East of Leeds said “This is a key milestone for transportation development in the North of England. Complex multi-disciplinary projects such as this require the knowledge and diverse skillset brought through alliancing, especially in the early stages of design development. We look forward to working alongside the West of Leeds Alliance, TOCs, FOCs and other major stakeholders to improve transport links and provide local communities with faster and more frequent rail services; transforming the north for years to come.”
An alliance between Network Rail, Amey, BAM Nuttall and Arup has been awarded a contract to design infrastructure options for the route, covering upgrades to civils, track, railway systems and electrification West of Leeds.

This follows on from the wider rail enhancements on the East of Leeds part of the Transpennine Route between York and Leeds which was awarded in October 2014 to an Alliance between Network Rail, VolkerRail, J. Murphy and Sons and Siemens.

Czech Republic: JLV, a.s. awarded Most Innovative Caterer again

JLV, a.s. company, a member of ČD Group, was awarded Most Innovative Caterer 2017 in the category Onboard Retail by the IRCG, the international organisation which associates providers of catering services on the railways, within its annual conference. The jury’s attention was drawn by the newly launched service Train Shop, which is provided under the ČD Restaurant brand. This on-board service, which is focused on non-food products, offers a range of useful little things that can sufficiently facilitate our customers’ journeys – besides classical chargers for electrical appliances and headphones/earphones our passengers are also offered power banks for trouble-free recharging of electrical appliances without a socket. While preparing regular seasonal changes, JLV is going to supplement this category of the offer with commemorative objects connected with significant anniversaries as well as travellers’ souvenirs.

IRCG – International Rail Catering Group
The International Rail Catering Group is an independent international non-governmental organization which associates the leading catering companies providing services on the railways. The organisation was established in 1965 in the town of Kiruna in Sweden. The main mission of the organisation is sharing experience gained on particular markets and increasing the level of catering and accommodation services on the railways collectively.

TRAIN SHOP – useful devices for your journeys
A train journey is a break which we often use to accomplish our work assignments, to communicate on-line with friends or to watch films. In this case, a flat battery in your telephone or tablet, or too loud fellow passengers can certainly displease you. If you find yourself in such a situation, the TRAIN SHOP, a ČD Restaurant service launched this year, will be there for you. This on-board service offers some useful devices for your journeys, such as a pair of headphones/earphones for undisturbed listening to music or films, a charger with a micro USB connector and a power bank, which recharges your telephone without a socket.
