From Growth to Optimisation
In the past decade, the rail industry in Australia, and particularly in the states with significant mining operations have experienced substantial growth. Projects to support large capacity increases have dominated.
Now that the markets have peaked, attention is turning more to efficiency. Innovative ideas need to be developed to enable those new assets to generate more value in a changed market. For those projects that are continuing, different technology approaches will be required to reduce project implementation and ongoing operating costs.
Papers are invited that demonstrate how technology has been applied to improve and optimise rail performance.
Authors are invited to submit an abstract in English of around 300 words. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and assessed on originality and technical quality. The file format for your abstract should be *.doc(x). Papers must have a strong engineering content: product descriptions will not be accepted, nor will most project descriptions.
The Australasian Rail Industry Awards are on again.
The Australasian Rail Industry Awards aim to recognise the outstanding individual and company achievements in the rail industry.
Supporting this premier event is the Australasian Railway Association (ARA), Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE), Railway Technical Society of Australasia (RTSA), Rail Track Association Australia (RTAA), Rail Tram and Bus Union (RTBU), and the Permanent Way Institution (PWI).
This year all proceeds from the Australasian Rail Industry Awards went towards the TrackSAFE Foundation, a registered Harm Prevention Charity established by the industry to endeavour to reduce near collisions, injuries and fatalities on the rail network resulting from suicide and reckless behaviour.
An Australasian Rail Industry Award nomination goes a long way. What better way to:
- Thank an employee for their commitment and dedication to your company?
- Show someone you acknowledge their achievements?
- Promote a company for its leadership in innovation?
- Have a product or service recognised nationally by industry leaders?
Nominations for the 2016 Awards are now open, for information on Categories and Criteria and to download Nomination Forms, click here.
