CEO of CHSRA, Brian Kelly, has highlighted that the findings of the report show that the high-speed project has removed more emissions than it has created.
The £5.4 million contract for Hitachi ABB Power Grids, as part of ongoing work with UKPNS, will realise projects to digitalise high-speed rail in the UK.
By working together, Siemens Energy and Siemens Mobility will be able to offer a complete hydrogen solution to customers, subsequently supporting the decarbonisation of the European rail industry.
By electrifying the Midlands Main Line, the network will achieve its decarbonisation targets sooner and improve passenger connectivity.
As well as delivering 19 single track kilometres of railway to recreate the link between Leven and the mainline rail network, the project has been tasked with delivering stations at Cameron Bridge and Leven, as well as unlocking the potential for freight traffic in the local area.
Working to optimise the East Coast Main Line and and reduce inefficiencies, the second phase of the power supply upgrade is set to begin.
The rail industry is under pressure to reduce its emissions and meet global government sustainability targets. This In-Depth Focus will explore how a modal shift to rail would help to achieve these goals, and how solutions such as alternative powered trains will play a key part.
This issue takes a look at South Africa’s complex signalling modernisation programme, the next steps in standardisation of data exchanges between TMS and trains, GTR's passenger-centric response to the challenges of COVID-19, plus our 'Decarbonising Rail', 'High-Speed Rail Development' and 'Rail: Thinking Long-Term' In-Depth Focuses.
HS2 Ltd has started the search for specialist contractors to deliver the high voltage power supply systems that will transfer electricity to the UK's new high-speed rail link and enable millions of people to enjoy low carbon journeys between London, Birmingham and the north of England.
