UIC STAKEHOLDER WORKSHOP: IRS 90930 TRACTION ENERGY SETTLEMENT AND DATA EXCHANGE

Overview

On 6 November 2018, UIC has hosted, at its headquarters in Paris (16, rue Jean Rey), a Stakeholder Workshop dedicated to the presentation of the new International Railway Solution (IRS) 90930, dealing with Traction Energy Settlement and Data Exchange.
IRS 90930 will be replacing most of the UIC Leaflet 930.
The objective of the meeting is to present and discuss with all stakeholders the structure and high-level content of the new IRS.
The vital points of the work are:

  • Common European way of settling the energy use of trains and locomotives
  • Defined roles, processes and requirements for all parties involved (Infrastructure Managers, Railway Undertakings, etc.)
  • Added commercial requirements and recommendations
  • Added technical requirements, recommendations and common solutions:
    • Data and information required to be delivered and handled by the parties and their systems
    • New/changed data formats and transfer methods, including tighter deadlines
    • New IT requirements

This IRS is being developed in line with latest relevant European regulations and standards, namely:

  • New amendments to EU Regulations 1301/2014 and 1302/2014;
  • TSI Rolling Stock;
  • TSI Energy;
  • CENELEC standard EN 50463 “Energy Measurement on Trains”.

UIC has organised another Stakeholder Workshop on 5 November 2018, at UIC Headquarters in Paris, regarding the new IRS 90940 (Project SFERA: Communication with Driver Advisory Systems). You can find related information at this page:
