16–17 March 2016: American Passenger Rolling Stock 2016 Congress
The two day event will host high-level executives and engineers from all sectors of the rail industry with a vested interest in the longevity and cost-reduction in operating passenger rolling stock.
With the growing pressure on rail authorities to save time and money in relation to asset management, the congress will assist stakeholders in developing cost-effective programmes to reduce the complicated and expensive venture that is owning and operating rolling stock.
Long-term asset management promises to feature prominently at the congress, giving delegates the opportunity to better implement long-term strategic planning in their asset management whilst minimising short-term expenses to maintain rolling stock fleets.
Frank DePaola, General Manager of MBTA will discuss business strategies related to planning future rolling stock maintenance programmes and the shift towards condition-based monitoring. He will also speak on the cost and performance of different predictive tools, data analytics technologies and innovative maintenance practices.
The congress is sponsored by Perpetuum, NEM Solutions, Nexala and Rail Services, with partners Nomad Digital and Nomad Tech. The congress will also host an exhibition where delegates will be given the opportunity to see first-hand the latest innovations and technologies in rolling stock maintenance.
There will be plenty of opportunities to network, where delegates can meet new partners and associates and make face-to-face contact with existing clients. Representatives will be there from European and Asian fleet operators to share best practices, as well as executives from American fleet and rail operators.
