 CATO Study for Vattenfall
Study of the possibilities to implement a CATO driver assistance system to the locomotive drivers on the Vattenfall Mining network in the Cottbus area in Germany.
 Cooperation project for efficient railway traffic.
The OnTime-project aims to increase railway capacity by reducing delays and improving traffic fluidity.
 Pre-study for LKAB
Pre-study for LKAB Malmtrafik's new planning system. Business analysis and viability study.
 Maintenance system for Euromaint
System that displays information about damages and planned maintenance of railway vehicles, connected to routes and timetable.
 Field test with CATO on the steel cargo line between Boden and Borlänge.
A benefit analysis has been done on the steel cargo line between Boden and Borlänge with GPS-loggings that has been used to calculate the energy savings made possible with CATO.
 Extended test operation for CATO on Malmbanan
Further development and continued test operation of CATO at Trafikverket and LKAB on Malmbanan.
 Dynamic timetable for MTAB; planning phase
Prestudy about how LKAB/MTAB can utilize more flexibility in the train planning process.
 CATO - Energy optimized train operation
R&D and demonstration project to implement CATO for train dispatchers in Boden and in 2 locomotives at LKAB in order to run test operation on Malmbanan. CATO is integrated with the planning system STEG at Trafikverket from where it recieves real-time information about the operational timetable. Timetable is interpreted as target points for the trains, which are then used to optimize the speed profiles so that the trains both follow the timetable exactly and are run in an energy optimal way.
 Maintenance of the freight car dispatching system Vadis
Maintenance of Green Cargo's optimization system Vadis for freight cars in wagon load traffic.
 Investigation of Rc locomotive derailment
Investigation of a broken rim of an Rc-locomotive which caused derailment in 160 km/h with a passenger train.
 Assessment of iron ore railway operation
Assessment of a heavy iron ore railway in northern Brazil. The mission included the entire railway operation of the 900 km line (vehicles, signalling, fixed installations, maintenance, operation, train control and safety issues).
 Automatic inventory control in empty freight car distribution
Expert support at the implementation of automatic inventory control in the empty freight car distribution process at Green Cargo
 Maintenance of the vehicles belonging to Ofotbanen.
Project management and planning of the maintenance including compiling of maintenace documentation
 Railway container transports to/from a new container port in Norvik outside Stockholm.
The Ports of Stockholms intend to relocate the container port in central Stockholm to Norvik in Nynäshamn. The study is an analysis of how railway transports of containers between Norvik and Stockholm/central Sweden could be designed in a competitive way compared to road transport.
 Analysis of a new intermodal transport system for Rail Combi
Rail Combi (CargoNet), the main intermodal railway operator in Sweden, wanted to make a major change of their rail production scheme. Transrail analysed the planned train and wagon circulation, impacts on the wagon fleet and kilometre performance. Successfully solved using Transrail's TSDA tool with new software routines to minimise wagon empty runs.
 Analysis of freight traffic operational costs.
Development of models for the calculation of rail freight transport operational costs to be used in strategic studies. The work was based on the models in Transrail's TSDA system.
 Models for calculation of vehicle empty runs
SIKA and the Swedish rail, road and maritime administrations cooperate on a national model for goods transport – Samgods, to carry out transportation forecasts, to identify and to study effects of infrastructure investments. Using our TSDA system Transrail built a realistic model to calculate empty runs (railway, road, sea), which is an essential part of the traffic flows.
 Vision for the railway traffic in central Sweden
Management of workshops, plus a vision for future passenger and freight railway traffic in central Sweden. The aim was to develop the competence of the BV Middle Region staff and to create input for their infrastructure planning activities. Cooperation with the Swedish consultancy company Transek.
 Studies on freight transport between Sweden and Europe.
Participation in various studies on freight transport (modal split, effects of the Öresund Sweden-Denmark bridge etc.) between Sweden and Europe.
 Comparison of the STAN and TSDA transport models
SIKA and the Swedish rail, road and maritime administrations cooperate on a national model for goods transport - Samgods. To get new input on freight transport modelling SIKA ordered a study to compare Transrail’s tool TSDA with the INRO tool STAN that had been used for transportation forecasts, to identify and to study effects of infrastructure investments.
 Classification of commodities as regards transport requirements
SIKA and the Swedish rail, road and maritime administrations cooperate on a national model for goods transport - Samgods. The modelling depends on the transport requirements of the various commodities. Transrail classified commodities following the Combined Nomenclature used by the EU.
 Concept for new postal trains in Sweden
No description
 Cargo System 2000
Developing a vision for a future Swedish railway freight transport system. Focus on the potential of intermodal transport in comparison to other means of transport. Included extensive technical-economical studies of different modes. Transrail tool TSDA (Transport System Design and Analysis) was used.
 Trains and Railway System of the Future
Contract by the European Commission to draft the railway R&D program within the 4th Framework Program.
