Ubidata has developed a positioning and measurement system which helps Voestalpine Railpro implement a new dust-free ballast train leading to an improved and safer release of ballast.
The aim of the SALTrain (StofArmLosTrein) or ‘Dust-free ballast train’ is to have a direct and positive impact on the working environment of railway workers. The system guarantees safety and allows for the release of ballast with less effort and more accuracy. Inhalable dust is prevented from being released due to a high pressure misting system.
Ubidata implemented a solution which delivers critical and actionable information on the levels of liquids in the misting system as well as any defects thus ensuring the continued operation of the maintenance wagons.
Thanks to this project with Voestalpine Railpro, Ubidata helps keeps this essential maintenance working in a safe and timely manner.
