In preparation for this year’s Rail Infra Forum, will host an interactive webinar on the shift to sustainable alternatives for diesel trains. Tune in on Thursday to gain valuable new insights from our speakers.

The Rail Infra Forum 2022 will be all about sustainable alternatives for diesel trains for non-electrified railway lines, such as hydrogen and battery trains, as well as the associated refuelling and recharging infrastructure. In preparation for this event, RailTech will sit down with Sittipan Reinold, Marko Kapetanović and Frederik Wewetzer for a discussion on these topics.

Sittipan Reinold is Head of Principles and Testing TecLab and Program Lead Diesel Exit Rail at Deutsche Bahn. For existing diesel fleets, what technologies DB is promoting in order to achieve high short and middle-term carbon reductions? Marko Kapetanović is PhD researcher at the Delft University of Technology, and together with Arriva developed a method to assess and predict the CO2 emissions of different diesel alternatives for a regional railway network in Groningen, the Netherlands. Frederik Wewetzer is Programme Manager Hydrogen and Fuel Cells at Now GmbH, a German federal organisation to promote and fund projects for climate neutrality.

Frankly, however, diesel, or not, is not a big issue – at railways…
Current problem, the big, plaguing as well Industry, as owners, as clients, is an infrastructure, since long due, for a decisive upgrading.
“Predictive” or not, “optimal” maintenance now, regrettably, is big business – that virtually is obstructing goal of railways.
Standard, low cost, construction, now comes with a devastatingly high price – and has to be outed.
(At transports quality pays, now more than ever!)
