Lifecycle cost reduction as one of the key requirements of rail vehicle operators for the near future.

Language: ENGLISH

 

It has become increasingly important for manufacturers of rolling stock, and especially for operators, to know operational costs per one kilometre EUR/km. Although the development of materials for railway wheels is advancing rapidly and the aim of development activities is to choose a suitable material for the concrete operational condition. GHH-BONATRANS contribute to this trend through the development of new material BONASTAR® which meets the essential requirements for efficiency and increased LCC.
