  1. Joint European Research to New Concepts for Modular Trains including HST – MODTRAIN project Dr Imrich KORPANEC UIC Deputy Director Technology/System Department

  2. European Rail Research Advisory Council Strategic Rail Research Agenda • ERRAC – SRRA priorities: • Seamless Passenger Services • Customised Freight Services • Integrated Mass Transit Services • Modular Interoperable Rolling stock • Intelligent Mobility • Fully Interoperable Infrastructure • Environment and Sustainability

  3. Interoperability & Modularisation Modular Interoperable Rolling Stock • Producing new generations of standardised rolling stock with the ability to operate cross-border services. • A fully interoperable railway will boost competitiveness within the Internal Market – scale of production and cost reduction. HST - Intercity - Long-distance PT

  4. MODTRAIN Definition MODTRAIN:Innovative Modular Vehicle Concepts for an Integrated European Railway System • MODTRAIN background:New trains risk independent interpretations of requirements and being built from unproven prototype components. • MODTRAIN objective:Definition and proof of the necessary functional, electrical and mechanical interfaces and validation procedures as reference to deliver the range of interchangeable modules that will make the next generation of intercity trains and universal locomotives possible. • MODTRAIN framework:Fixed formation passenger trains and universal locomotives capable of 200 km/h and more. Hope to embrace all rolling stock as work advances.

  5. MODTRAIN Structure/Strengths • Standardisation • Interdisciplinary approach • Modular approach • System view Modpower Modcontrol Modlink EUcab Modlink Door Portal & Train crew Interface Modlink Coupler Modpower Modbogie Interchangeable components Mock Ups & validations

  6. MODTRAIN project • 37 partners coming from 10 countries • Total budget: € 30 385 046 • EC funding: € 16 900 000 Project Coordinator: UNIFE ABB Schweiz Alma CG Alstom Transport ANIE-ASSIFER Ansaldobreda Bombardier Transportation D2S International D’Appolonia DB Deuta Werke ERCIM FAR System FAV FIF FPC-UPC Fraunhofer IWM Frensistemi IAS IFE IST Lisboa KMT Knorr-Bremse Logika Lucchini Lumikko Politecnico di Milano RIA Siemens TS SNCF TÜV Nord Trenitalia TU Berlin TU Wien UIC Universita di Firenze University of Newcastle VDB • System integrators • Sub-system suppliers • Railway operators • National and European representative associations • Research centres • SMEs

  7. MODTRAIN Modular approach • Harmonisation of functions • Clear standard interfaces • Modularisation of product / Interoperable constituents • Market opening • Less parts • Pre-tested units • Common application function block library • Plug-and-play-modules • Interchangeable components • Reduction of throughput time • Re-use of proven design • Shorter time-to-market • Improved logistics BENEFITS RESULTS

  8. MODTRAIN Targets MODTRAIN targets for benefits for European rail transport: Towards an integrated European railway system • Reduction of average cost per pkm / tkm:up to 10% • Increase of new rolling stock productivity:30% • Increase of the percentage of service proven components built into new series:from 40-50% up to 80-90% • Market reduction in bidding costs due to increased modularisation of train architecture:up to 25% • Reduction of manufacturing cost through platform-based production patterns:ca. 10% • Reduction of time-to-market:ca. 30% • Increase of reliability:up to 25%. • Reduction of maintenance costs:up to 30%. • Integration of thepassenger needs
