Work Package 7

Adaptation of SWL specific technologies

Lead partners: Eureka (WPL) / Wascosa

WP 7 aims at developing technological solutions for single wagonload transport. Related works will mainly focus on adaptations of existing “standard” equipment to give these solutions a realistic chance of wide-spread implementation (important specifically for achieving a remarkable impact to the SWL optimisation).

The work package contains three main topics / tasks:

  • Develop a modified container wagon to enable loading and unloading of ISO containers in industrial railway sidings;
  • Develop a modified stackable log wood load unit for the Wascosa flex freight system;
  • Develop an intelligent wagon telematics system on basis of existing NavMaster technology.
