Remote monitoring equipment developed by Railnova is providing a centralised system for fleet diagnostics and is now in use on more than 1000 locomotives and trains across Europe. It is also supporting the shift to predictive train maintenance.
As an increasing number of people are choosing to travel by train and lines are getting busier, it’s paramount to prevent anything that might cause delays and to be very responsive in case of unforeseen events.
Railnova’s CEO Christian Sprauer was featured in CNBC’s IOT: Powering the digital economy documentary alongside the Head of Digital Innovation at BMW.
Fuel consumption and fuel supply are central aspects of diesel fleet management. Railnova monitors fuel gauge signals to automatically inform operators of relevant events, such as when a locomotive is running low on fuel and when it has been refuelled.
Interview: the inside story on how the startup Railnova is helping rail companies transform their fleet management and maintenance.
Growing a startup in rail is not as simple as growing one in a consumer-oriented sector, it's far more complex due to the many regulations, the importance of safety and long held traditional practices.
A day in the life of two Railnovians: helping Railway organisations access data and act on predictive alerts
What better way to give you an insider view on what Railnova does, than having two members of the team share how they are contributing to the process of accessing data on trains and translating that data into actionable insights and predictive alerts?
Winter is coming, and lucky for us we don’t need to worry about white walkers, but we do have to watch out for an increase in battery failures on locomotives due to the cold and severe weather conditions.
Remote condition monitoring is the first step towards usage-based and predictive maintenance. For one of our recent projects, we are showing CargoNet how they can turn their railway assets into smart trains.
Usage-based preventive maintenance is an interesting option to ensure more accurate maintenance periodicities, while extending the life of your components.
At Railnova we believe there are two major actions railway operators should perform in order to optimise fleet availability and reliability: digitalising fleet actions and receiving and acting on real-time remote data.
