SNCF starts testing Erex system
2015-02-27 Eress organisation announces that SNCF (Société nationale des chemins de fer français) has decided to test Erex system
We are very pleased to announce that SNCF has chosen to test Erex system and consider this a significant milestone, says Eress Director, Dyre Martin Gulbrandsen.
SNCF will test Eress system, Erex, for 50 of its cargo locomotives.
SNCF is France's national state-owned railway company and manages the rail traffic in France. SNCF Logistics is the division of the SNCF group responsible for freight transportation and logistics.
Eress is a non-profit organisation, jointly owned by its partners, committed to the development, implementation and supply of the Erex system. The Erex IT solution provides a thoroughly tested and established system for managing and billing consumed energy on trains. Erex makes possible to control and accurately bill the energy each train uses. Erex ensures that train operators pay just for what they use, since bills are based on precise energy measurement. Without Erex, bills are based on estimates. Accurate energy data is also the starting point for other environmental initiatives. Erex data makes possible to implement further measures to reduce energy use. Erex can save up to 30 percent of energy consumption.
Eress is a partnership between Banedanmark (Rail Net Denmark), Infrabel (Belgian Railway Infrastructure Manager), Jernbaneverket (Norwegian National Rail Administration), Trafikverket (Swedish Transport Administration), Liikennevirasto (Finnish Transport Agency) and SBB CFF FFS (Swiss Federal Railways).
