Engineering and Safety Award - Railway Industry Innovation Awards 2020

Running a safe and reliable railway is the number one objective for all operators, passenger and freight. In this category we see three very different innovations contributing to improvements in engineering and safety, introduced by category sponsor the Railway Industry Association:

  • Rail Asset Identification System – a 3D visualisation tool from Network Rail and partners to recognise and catalogue assets
  • HMT1 WorkfloPlus – a data input tool developed by a team within Network Rail to free up staff time
  • ActiWheel GS – a new rail vehicle traction system to reduce rolling contact fatigue developed by Stored Energy Technology
