The most advanced training courses to increase the safety skills of your employees
Your technical risk issues
- The highest level of safety for the materials and equipment used
- The life span of your equipment and your network
- Optimising safety at stations
- The qualification of systems, equipment and infrastructure by our subsidiary Sopemea
Your environmental risk issues
- The development of technical and technological innovations to limit the carbon footprint, particularly for freight
- The improvement of rail power supply using decarbonised sources (hydrogen)
Your digital and technological risk issues
- The use of Big Data resources to target risk-based monitoring (RBO) or to optimise the performance of the equipment produced (train, metro, rail networks...), use of artificial intelligence for steering
- Operational excellence in the digitalisation of passenger and freight flows
By controlling all these risks, businesses in the transport sector will be able to develop new, more environmentally-friendly and more decarbonised systems worldwide, to contribute to tomorrow's world.
NO SAFETY, NO SUSTAINABLE PROGRESS
The major global issues
in the rail sector
Trains respond well to environmental and climate challenges. When the distance to be covered is less than 1000 km, the train (and in particular high-speed lines) can quickly become more competitive than the plane, thanks to a network of stations often located in the heart of cities, which guarantees easy accessibility and reasonable transport times.
Rail is therefore developing on all continents. Current rail traffic is 10% of what it will be in 30 years. The potential for development is therefore impressive. Rail also involves freight. Passengers travel during the day, so there is considerable flexibility for transporting goods at night. The development of freight would make it possible to reduce the pollution linked to road transport over long distances.
Inter-modality for freight as well as for passengers is essential, as the last kilometre can be done by soft mode.
sanitary requirements put in place during epidemics are more easily met by train than by plane.
The development of the railway sector is a priority with the following challenges:
- Building/renovating infrastructures
- Digitalising the organisation of flows to improve their flexibility and digitise ticketing
- Rethinking the energy supply for railways (electrification, hydrogen, etc.)
