Driving the Future Forward – Introducing the 22000 DMU Hybrid Train to Ireland - Tuesday, 25 January at 12pm

This presentation hosted by the Railways Group will examine introduction of the 22000 DMU Hybrid Train to Ireland. Stephen Fitzgerald, ICR Project Engineer with Irish Rail will discuss the efforts been taken to reduce carbon emission in the public transportation sector by 45% by 2030, with the conversion of purely diesel trains to a new hybrid system to help achieve this target. Whilst buying hybrid trains maybe an easier option, it did not make for a strong business case. Therefore, converting the existing diesel trains to a Hybrid system would achieve the goal but a much larger undertaking.  Please note this event will not be recorded.  Book now.
