UIC has launched the Modern Technical Rail Maintenance project

On 7 May 2018, the kick-off meeting was held by representatives of UIC and VNIIZhT. The 24th Asian Pacific Regional Assembly assigned VNIIZhT as the Project Leader for the APRA project “Modern Technical Rail Maintenance” which was launched during the kick-off meeting. Following the decision of the recent APRA Web Conferences, the principles of the Quality Management Process during the implementation of the project were discussed and agreed by the teams of VNIIZhT and UIC representatives.

From the UIC side the kick-off meeting was attended by Ms Irina Petrunina, UIC Advisor for CIS countries and APRA international organisations, and Mr Vytautas Kinderis, UIC Coordinator for Standardisation and East-West Relations.

From the VNIIZhT side the kick-off meeting was attended by Mr Nikita Gorshkov, Head of Unit for International scientific technical cooperation, Ms Yulija Bogatyreva, Deputy Head of Unit for international Cooperation, Mr Aleksey Borc, Deputy director of scientific centre “Rails, welding, transport’s material sciences, and Mr Evgeny Shur, Chief scientist of Laboratory “Materials and technologies of thermal processing of details of track superstructure and rolling stock”.

Study background

Nowadays the development of trends in world railway infrastructure can be characterised by the following factors: new manufacturing techniques of rails; axle load and train weight increase; high speed traffic development; significant differentiation of conditions for rail operation. The last factor has a major impact on infrastructure operations. Primarily on rails as in a number of countries axle loads of heavy trains are about 32-40 t/axle. Running speeds of high-speed rolling stock reach 350 km/h and more. The result is the need to optimise rail categories choice for set operation conditions (according to criteria of technical-and-economic efficiency and safety) and their maintenance. The project aims to develop recommendations for choosing rails category for different conditions and their current maintenance. For the last several years in the Russian Federation the system track and rail facility running has received development in classification improvement and railway line specification, requirements for rail reliability, their guaranteed life, recommendations for various operation conditions. A standardised document has been prepared in instruction form, which is a classification and catalogue of rails defects and sharp defects. It contains not only defects description but requirements for operation conditions in case of defects detecting and replacement procedure. The main effects of this work are cost-efficiency of rail life-cycle in various operating conditions, increase in traffic safety levels, increase in rail reliability and fail safety, extend their life-cycle, prevent derailments and train accidents.

Study goal

Implementation of this work would be an innovative experience for the Asian Pacific Region to use various rail categories with different characteristics (according to EN 13674-1:2011), subject to operating conditions, that vary by running speed and loading for heavy haul and high speed traffic. The same effect would be had on JSC RZD. There will be a prepared matrix of different rail type application in various conditions under the plan/traffic composition (high speed railway line, speed railway line, railway line with passenger service primary, line with freight service primary, heavy-traffic railway line, low-intensity railway line) / on operational resource of fail safe operations.

Mr Konstantin Shenfeld, VNIIZhT Executive Director, and Mr Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Director General, were informed about the results of the kick-off meeting and the confirmed commitments to be adhered to by both organisations for the sake of technological progress within the international railway community.

Russia: Aeroexpress applies Artificial Intelligence technologies

Aeroexpress launched an Artificial Intelligence (AI) bot named Andrey to provide primary support online for customers using frequently asked questions service.

The bot has been developed by the Russian company Just AI, a part of the i-Free Group, which specialises in artificial intelligence technologies.

Without any assistance from an operator, Andrey provides comprehensive answers to frequently asked questions, thereby taking care of 72% of inquiries. The bot advises passengers about how to buy train tickets in order to travel to the airport, the time of the nearest train service, and the conditions of carriage. It can explain where the required terminal is situated and how long a ride with Aeroexpress will take.

Andrey understands the natural speech rather than offers to select menu items. For example, if asked “How long does it take for a ticket to be delivered to the email?” the bot will figure out that an e-ticket is meant and will reply that it is usually sent within a few seconds. It will also understand if a customer is interested in some special fares or baggage transportation conditions. All of this is possible thanks to artificial intelligence. Just AI in close cooperation with Aeroexpress specialists working with inquiries, continues improving it by teaching the bot questions based on information generally contained in enquiries. Even now, according to users’ feedback and estimates, the answers provided by the virtual consultant are complete and useful over 60% of the time.

The online consultant was launched in November 2017, making it possible to significantly decrease the call centre load and increase the speed of serving Aeroexpress passengers. Hotline costs have been reduced by 17%. Since being put into operation, Andrey has already handled 21,000 inquiries, and this number keeps growing month by month.

In March, approximately 9,000 website users directed their questions to the bot, which is double the amount compared to the first month of service.

Finishing of all early preparations for Electrification of Garmsar-Incheboron Rail Route project

The project of the electrification of Garmsar-Incheboron rail route which was in its early steps during the last few years, has reached the final step from the beginning of the construction.

Mr Maziar Yazdani, Vice Presdident of RAI for Infrastructure and technical issues declared that this route which starts from Garmasar, between Tehran AND Semnan Province, continues up to Inche-Boron, in Gorgan Province, North of Iran, and the new rail border point with Turkmenistan on Kazakhstan- Turkmenistan- Iran (KTI) corridor and most of this route is considered as the oldest rail routes of Iranian Railways.

Dr Yazdani added that since this route is in single track and it has severe gradients, it is considered as a bottle neck for the North - South corridor of Iranian railways. Moreover, regarding that fact that this route passes through mountainous and difficult areas, the technical studies for choosing between electrifying and double tracking of it led to the electrifying of it.

Her expressed that this project will be financed by the Russian government and will be implemented through a partnership between Russia and Iran. It includes electrification of 495 km of the route, supplying fleet and repairing and upgrading entire infrastructures of the route (track, stations, signalling system…).

Vice President of RAI for Infrastructure and technical issues also stated that the pre-starting phases of construction is progressing so that the negotiations with Tavanir company, state company for production, management and transfer of electricity in the country, responsible for supplying electric power of the project has been finalised and similar meetings with the governor and Provincial authorities for acceleration in the implementation procedures have been held. In the ultimate step of the pre-starting procedure we are negotiating with Russian counterparts and simultaneously a team consists of RAI Electrification Bureau and respective contractor are collecting information about the mentioned route by taking photos and videos from selected parts of it.

United Kingdom: Millions set to benefit as railway technology transformation takes off

By the time HS2 arrives in Manchester, the majority of the UK network – covering some 70% of journeys – will have undergone a technological transformation delivering faster, more frequent safer services to millions of passengers across the country.

Mark Carne, chief executive, said: “Not since the railway transformed from steam to diesel in the 1960s has a technological breakthrough held such promise to vastly improve our railway for the benefit of the millions of people and businesses who rely on it every day.

“The age of a digital railway has today moved from the drawing board and into reality as we reveal a blueprint that will improve the lives of millions of passengers and freight users across the country. Today’s commitment is to adopt and roll-out new digital technology, for both trains and track, that will deliver faster, more frequent services for passengers and businesses alike, giving our economy a massive boost.”

Services through London Bridge, into London King’s Cross, Waterloo, and across the Pennines, are to be the first to reap the benefits of this technological leap as the blueprint earmarks these routes for transformation over the next five years.
Mr Carne continued: “We, Government, and the wider rail industry, have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to get the concept of a digital railway off the ground. It is now a reality.

“In a world first, digital train control with ‘fly-by-wire’ trains (automatic train operation) – coupled with smart infrastructure, is now a reality on Thameslink services through London Bridge. We now have a plan, impetus and the funding, to introduce these systems across large swathes of our railway network over the coming years.

“This is a turning point in the history of our railways as we move firmly into the digital age.”

Over the past two decades passenger numbers have doubled and continue to grow but our railway, laid out in Victorian times, is full to bursting, especially at peak times on our main rail arteries into urban centres. Big capacity boosting infrastructure projects, such as Thameslink and Crossrail, are expensive and cause years of disruption while digital railway offers an alternative way to deliver additional capacity, making the most of what we already have.

Over half of Britain’s analogue signalling systems – some still based on Victorian technology – with lineside traffic lights controlling trains, will need to be replaced within the next 15 years. A like for like replacement would cost circa £20bn and deliver very little in terms of passenger benefits. New digital signalling offers a more cost-effective alternative that also brings significant benefits for rail users, such as more capacity, speed and reliability.
Digital train control is already a reality on the Thameslink core through London Bridge and on Crossrail.

In the five years to 2024 the industry is planning to introduce it across the Pennines, on the southern end of the East Coast main line into London King’s Cross and onto some of the major commuter routes that feed London Waterloo.

Within 15 years, the aim is to see 70% of journeys benefit from digital railway technology. Launching the new ‘Digital Railway’ strategy at a special event in York today, alongside the Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling, Mr Carne concluded: “Transforming our railway into the digital age offers the chance to deliver huge benefits for our passengers and the freight that this country depends on. It is the most cost-efficient way to deliver the future railway Britain needs.”

Hungary: The number of accidents at railway crossings has decreased by a third at MAV Co

In the first quarter of this year the number of collisions and accidents in which someone was hit in railway crossings has dropped by 33 percent. By the end of March 2018, the Hungarian State Railways Co. (MAV Co.) were faced with one fatal accident, one serious accident and five accidents with light injury on its network at road crossings with well-functioning crossing barriers. In 2017, MAV Co’s personnel for safety and security – with the involvement of the police – carried out traffic safety checks almost 200 times at railway crossing with barriers. A similar campaign is expected this year as well.

Last year a total of 99 collisions and accidents in which someone was hit in railway crossings were registered, out of which 16 took place in railway crossings on the network of MÁV-HÉV (commuter rail lines in and around Budapest). This total figure is higher than it was in 2016, however one can see a significant decrease in the number of accidents during the last quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of this year. The accidents and collisions were due to the negligence and inattention of road users. Accidents resulting from the failure of the railway system have not been recorded for more than seven years.

The reduction in the number of accidents can be accounted for the safety checks and the accident-prevention campaigns. MAV Co. considers it a priority to prevent traffic accidents and reduce their number in the railway crossings. Therefore, in addition to the development of crossing barriers, MAV Co. regularly draws the attention of the road users to the regulations of the Highway Code jointly with the police. As part of the International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) on 2 June 2017, fifty traffic safety checks were carried out at crossing barriers. Besides this, 190 traffic checks took place last year in 157 railway crossings. During this year’s ILCAD Day, on 7 June road-users will be checked at railway crossings.

Raising drivers’ awareness is essential because they not only risk their own lives, but also of those who travel on trains or work in rail.

China: “Top-quality Engineering, Smart Jingzhang” project construction is steadily advancing

On 23 April, the Smart Jingzhang HSR Project construction was at an advanced stage, the phased achievements of relevant technology research, development and application were complete, and a feature film called “Establish A New Benchmark of China’s High-speed Railways”, which focused on the construction of Smart Jingzhang HSR and creative design results of intelligent EMU as the important associated equipment of Smart Jingzhang HSR, was launched at China Academy of Railway Sciences Corporation Limited.

The head of the relevant department of China Railways said that the construction project of Smart Jingzhang HSR was an important measure taken by the railway department to implement the General Secretary Xi Jinping’s ideas of holding a “green, sharing, open, honest” Winter Olympics and to serve 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and overall work of the Party and the country. It was a specific action taken by China Railways to implement the strategic plan, which was proposed in the 19th CPC National Congress, of making China into a science and technology giant and into a country with strong transportation network, and it was also a symbolic project showing that China’s railway construction has moved from the advanced level to the leading level in the world. It was of great practical and profound historical significance.

For the construction of Smart Jingzhang HSR, the railway department actively adopted many advanced technologies including Cloud Computing, Big Data, Internet of Things, Mobile Internet, AI and BIM, conducted careful design, organisation and construction, focused on constructing an excellent project, made breakthroughs in the key technologies of intelligent construction, intelligent equipment and intelligent operation, and comprehensively upgraded the level of railway safety construction, operation management and passenger service.

Since March, 2016 when the project was formally started, China Railways has continuously strengthened the intelligence innovation and practice in terms of project construction, operation management, technical equipment and transportation service. The construction of a series of dominated projects such as Guanting Reservoir Grand Bridge, Badaling Railway Tunnel, Badaling Great Wall Station and Taizicheng Station has proceeded successfully. Positive progress had also been made in the research and development of intelligent EMU as an important part of the Smart Jingzhang HSR.

The intelligent EMU adopted for Jingzhang HSR are positioned as the intelligent type of “Fuxing” EMU. Based on the existing “Fuxing” CR400BF EMU, with the newest modern science and technology, new development and breakthroughs are supposed to be seen in terms of intelligence, safety & comfort, green & environmental protection and comprehensive energy saving. According to the ideas of “standard configuration and configuration for Beijing Winter Olympics”, taking into full consideration of the factors such as Chinese elements, the Olympic spirit, the historical cultural heritage of Beijing and Zhangjiakou and the makers creative results in previous phase, China Railways organised the optimised design and adopted the “Hawk” and “Sailfish” head schemes and “Dragon and Phoenix” and “Auspicious Snow” appearance coating schemes. The sample trial-manufacture and assembling of the intelligent EMU will be completed at the end of 2018, and the commissioning and experimental verification of the intelligent EMU will be completed in the first half of 2019.

The feature film focused on the topics of Smart Jingzhang HSR and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. By using techniques of expression through comparing the Beijing – Zhangjiakou Railway a century before and with 3D animation technology, the film showed the intelligent, green and humanistic values of Jingzhang HSR and demonstrated that “Top-quality Engineering, Smart Jingzhang” pioneered the new upgrade work on China’s high-speed railways.

Czech Republic: SŽDC introduces centralised risk management system

Based on its management’s decision, Správa železniční dopravní cesty (SŽDC) is introducing a centralised risk management system. Its objective is to analyse current and future risks throughout the whole organisation and actively mitigate the probability of their occurrence and the gravity of their undesirable impact. The current administration and management process of our organisation will thus be even more effective.

The activities of SŽDC are increasingly intensely influenced by a number of factors such as increasing regulation, technology development, globalisation, natural disasters climate changes, fraud conduct or terrorism which can influence its functioning and reaching set goals in a significant way. That is why the state organisation management decided to face actively all possible threats and to fulfil responsibly its role of a good manager and economist.

Mr Jiří Svoboda, Director General of SŽDC, presented his vision to introduce a functional risk management integrated system as a modern way of management focused on complex identification of risks and their handling. ”Správa železniční dopravní cesty assumes that this change, supported by appropriate communication and employees’ training, will increase awareness of risks, promote managerial decision-making and especially help to ensure fulfilling the organisation’s strategic objectives “, said Mr Svoboda.

Until now, risk management at SŽDC was being conducted in a decentralised way while focusing on selected partial areas such as operational and financial risks as well as the areas of human resources, IT and cyber-security or bribery. The new centralised model should bring a complex view of risks throughout the whole organisation including all its activities and processes.

In the first phase of implementation, the global framework of risk management, terminology unification and organisational arrangements will be set up to the end of the year at the latest. An independent risk management organisational structure with an institutional form of a risk management committee, a risks’ coordinator, owners and analysts of risks should create a matrix structure together with linear management. An “inventory” of potential risks will subsequently follow which will focus (besides issues mentioned above) also on risks arising while achieving strategic goals (high-speed lines development, interoperability), on the field of ethics, environment or reputation loss. When the analysis, evaluation and a risks’ map is completed, it will be possible to focus on key risks, to prepare tactics for their handling, to attribute responsibility to specific linear managers and to start a continual process of evaluating, handling, monitoring and regular reporting with a timely waring function.
