Östgötatrafiken orders Alstom EMUs

first_imgSWEDEN: Östergötland transport authority Östgötatrafiken has placed a firm order for Alstom’s Salzgitter plant to supply eight more Coradia Nordic X61 regional electric multiple-units by early 2015. The four-car units are designed for winter temperatures of -35°C, with roof-mounted equipment to blast away snow and ice. The €50m contract announced on August 6 takes the total number of units Östgötatrafiken has ordered within a 2008 framework agreement to 13, and means Alstom has sold a total of 247 regional trains in Sweden since 2002. Östgötatrafiken CEO Paul Hakansson said the units which are already in service ‘have contributed to a higher level of customer satisfaction’, and acquiring more is expected to help increase ridership.last_img

Predictive maintenance at the heart of Thameslink EMU depot

first_imgUK: ‘We want to prevent malfunctions before they even occur,’ said Siemens Mobility Division CEO Jochen Eickholt when Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin officially opened the new rolling stock depot at Three Bridges on October 15. The depot will maintain the 115 Class 700 Desiro City electric multiple-units which Siemens is supplying for north–south commuter routes through central London. The Department for Transport has ordered the EMUs under a 20-year deal with Cross London Trains, a special purpose joint venture of Siemens Project Ventures, Innisfree and 3i Infrastructure. Siemens has a separate contract for their maintenance, and ‘making sure our trains are available for service day-in, day-out, is key’, said Eickholt. The main contractor for construction of the depot was VolkerFitzpatrick. Smart predictive maintenance lies at the heart of the design, with all trains arriving at the site able to pass through an automated inspection system supplied by MRX, which uses laser scanning to identify maintenance requirements. The 265 m main building has five maintenance tracks, elevated for easy underfloor access. The site is on the 750 V DC third rail network, but one of the tracks has 25 kV 50 Hz electrification for testing the dual-voltage trainsets. There are also 11 sidings providing stabling for 172 cars, with facilities for emptying controlled-emission toilets. The depot has a personnel protection system supplied by Zonegreen, as well as full signalling. There are two bidirectional train washing plants, a tandem-head underfloor wheel lathe supplied by Hegenscheidt-MFD, and two Mechan bogie drops. Other facilities include a KMW driver training simulator.A second depot is being built at Hornsey in north London. The new depots will be ‘role models for Siemens projects all over the world’, said Eickholt. The experience gained at Three Bridges is being used to inform the development of the facility in Dortmund which will maintain double-deck EMUs ordered for the Rhein-Ruhr Express project.A more detailed article on Three Bridges depot will appear in the December 2015 issue of Railway Gazette International.last_img read more

Independent investigatory body may be difficult, says AG

first_img Share Attorney General, Levi Peter (file photo)In light of suggestions from the public that an independent investigatory body may lead to greater transparency, Attorney General Levi Peter has questioned whether this is possible for a small island like Dominica. There have been questions by members of the public as to why an independent body was not sought out to lead investigation into Joshua Etienne’s death since he died while in custody of police officers.“It’s easy to say that it should have an independent body but if you just think about it for a moment, an independent body to investigate murder, which is the most serious crime that we have in our statute, would need independent people with investigatory expertise and most jobs do not necessarily give you that training.”He explained that the United Kingdom, which is a much bigger jurisdiction, has an Independent Complaints Authority but one will find that it was not too long ago that it was formed.“I am not saying that the idea of having an independent body to investigate is a bad idea, what I’m saying is that in practical terms, it may be very difficult for an individual of a small state such as ourselves to be able to do that in a way that actually would provide the improvements that one would be seeking to get,” Mr Peter added.He inquired, “When was the last time we had a death in custody” adding that “It may well turn out that when the review of this particular matter is done at some later stage, that that may be a lesson that’s learned”.Moreover, Mr Peter said that consideration of bringing in an investigator from out of Dominica would be more appropriate upon conclusion that there are areas of short fall after reviewing how the case is conducted, its outcome and the evidence presented.“It may very well be that when we get to know what the evidence is that we are satisfied that even if you had an outside investigator he or she would not have come up with any more evidence or any better evidence than our investigator has provided.”He said if the outcome is the same as having an outside investigator then this type of intervention becomes “almost negligible”.“So I’d rather wait and make that decision,” the Attorney General said. Dominica Vibes News Share Sharing is caring!

Amidst looks of curiosity on the faces of the children, Daniel Arriaga, who works in the zoo’s Education Department, unveiled the animals one by one. Each child was elated at the opportunity to see, touch, and even feed the different animals, which included an African pygmy hedgehog, an Australian sugar glider, a domestic ferret, a Madagascar hissing cockroach and finally Coco, a blue and gold macaw.Daycare Director Rachel Ruiz said that the opportunity to learn about and touch the animals would provide students with an excellent educational experience, however, Texas state law does not allow daycares to participate in field trips. She said, “As a daycare, we are not allowed to go on field trips, so instead of going to the zoo, we had the zoo come to us. We made it happen.”Want the whole story?

Browns Fans Livid After Reversed Personal Foul Call After Mayfield Fourth Quarter Hit

first_img Matt Loede It was one of the most insane calls of the 2018 season, but at this point, it is something that Browns fans are probably use to.The play of course was the hit on Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield in the fourth quarter of the Browns 26-23 overtime loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a hit that looked like live and on replay should have been 15 yards for a helmet to helmet hit.It was a 15-yard penalty – at least at first.That is until the officials picked up the flag, making one of the most mind boggling calls that it seems like has ever been made, stating that Mayfield was ‘allowed to be hit in the head.’“There’s a lot of emphasis being put on protecting the QB. Doesn’t seem like the Browns are getting a lot of calls,” Mayfield said after the game. Here’s the original play in which the penalty was called..@bakermayfield turns on the jets!#CLEvsTB pic.twitter.com/cRkV0LKl08— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) October 21, 2018Here’s a closer look at the hit by Buccaneers Jordan Whitehead, who clearly hit Mayfield in the head without question. The #NFL picked up this flag in the #Browns game after stating Baker had not yet begun his slide and therefore was “allowed to be hit in the head”?… Yet here is clear helmet to helmet head hunting. What a sham of a league. pic.twitter.com/DX3TwhoN0J— Paul Congiusta (@ShiftyJuice) October 21, 2018Here’s the official with the unreal explanation on the call:REF STRAIGHT UP SAID BAKER WAS ALOUD TO BE HIT IN THE HEAD!

That came straight from an NFL Referee’s mouth #BrownsvsBucs #OverIt https://t.co/AY737bWs9r— Trenton Lightle (@trentonlightle) October 21, 2018 Oh yeah that was DEFINITELY a targeting call the refs missed on Baker Mayfield. I was at the game and the ref said:“The QB was still considered a runner so there for he is able to be HIT IN THE HEAD….” …all #Browns fans in the stadium. Like how ref? How?? pic.twitter.com/VmOnk39iyI— GeAndra. (@geandraimani) October 21, 2018 “The quarterback was still a runner and therefore is allowed to be hit in the head. He had not yet begun his slide.
