Alstom, in partnership with ProRail and Lineas, have demonstrated the highest grade of automation on a shunting locomotive.
The acquisition will allow Lineas and IRP to extend their already good collaboration and further integrate their operations to offer even better solutions for customers.
The new Xpress service enables transporters and shippers to move intermodal volumes three times per week between the Port of Moerdijk and Lineas’ Main Hub in Antwerp.
In support of its international growth strategy and to strengthen its financial protection from COVID-19, Lineas has secured €60 million in additional funding.
The train is part of the Green Xpress Network of rail freight operator Lineas, and gives the Swabia and Vorarlberg region rail access to the European hinterland and deep-sea.
Three Xpress trains per week will connect Antwerp to Langweid-Foret, the Swabia region in southern Germany, and further to Wolfurt in the Austrian Vorarlberg region.
The partnership ensures the existing traffic flow from Antwerp through to Irvine will continue for an additional two years, and shows commitment from both organisations in reaching net zero emission targets.
Rail Freight Forward members and sector associations have welcomed an MoU for the development of European Digital Automatic Coupling (DAC) for rail freight.
Starting in 2021, Alstom and ProRail will test Automatic Train Operations (ATO) using a Lineas shunting locomotive.
Under the contract, Voith will be responsible for the major overhaul of 30 Lineas locomotives over the next four and a half years.
