Arriva to Invest GBP 4.5 Million in Eco-Technology at UK Rail Operations

Arriva plc has announced an investment of GBP 4.5 million in eco-technology at its UK rail operations. More than 580 train cabs from 15 different train fleets at the group's Arriva Trains Wales, Chiltern Railways, CrossCountry and Grand Central rail operations will be fitted with the Energymiser Driver Advisory System (DAS). The technology, produced by TTG Transportation Technology, will help drivers from across Arriva's UK rail operations deliver smoother, more efficient journeys for passengers while reducing fuel consumption by up to 15% and lowering overall diesel fuel related emissions. Energymiser DAS is an on board computer screen which provides drivers with real-time route information on train running times allowing them to monitor train performance and reliability. It offers guidance on train speeds to help drivers keep services to timetable while ensuring greater fuel efficiency and progressive driving techniques. The technology also has the potential to integrate with rail infrastructure in the future allowing live feeds about network conditions, speed restrictions or disruption ahead enabling drivers to respond more effectively.
