Track your asset utilisation beyond the workshop yard. With Railnova you know if your locomotive is parked, in traction, in repositioning or idle, and where. Every week, month or quarter, Railnova gives you insight on your fleet performance indicators. Run more trains with the same fleet. Going forward, you control the progress of your organisation towards industry best practice.
Reduce fuel consumption
Fuel represents the biggest variable cost item on rail traffics. With Railnova, you can monitor fuel consumption by driver, traffic and load. Both fuel consumption and fuel level in the tank are measured. Weekly reports allow you to incite drivers to match best practice. Determine your traffic profitability with accurate fuel consumption measurement. Review your pricing accordingly. Promote your environmental consciousness to chargers and communicate on your green initiative with real fuel consumption data.
Railnova is a communication tool between traffic operations and maintenance. Railnova offers a platform to exchange information on train status between your own maintenance teams or external workshops. Maintenance can anticipate when the locomotive is arriving at their premises. Operations knows when the locomotive is ready for traffics. Mobile teams are aware of the locomotive location and condition in real time.
Reduce idle time
Idle time is an important hidden cost, not only during winters. Railnova sheds light on fuel consumed on idling and lets you act on it. Idle time reduction also preserves engine hours and associated maintenance costs.
Extend maintenance periodicities
Fearing to overrun maintenance periodicities, operators and workshops tend to over-maintain on fixed calendar dates. With Railnova, you maintain your trains based on the actual kilometers usage or engine hours. Usage data is fed by the telematics into our automated maintenance scheduler. Usage based maintenance translates into savings in full compliance with ECM regulation.
Avoid train cancellation penalties
Keep your trains in operational condition by monitoring critical parameters. Receive an alert when the battery needs recharging before the train is to depart. High coolant temperature alerts allow you to pull the train out of service to avoid a catastrophic in-line failure. Monitor any other parameter that is critical to your operations.
Automate fleet data reporting
Fleet management reporting is cumbersome and draws onto your teams resources. With Railnova, reporting is automated. Usage data such as km or engine hours feeds automatically in the system. Train delay is monitored. Maintenance planning and reporting of works done takes only a few clicks. Defect reporting is achieved with mobile devices in the field. Railnova enables you to switch from excel to a collaborative data platform.
