Over the past months, we have been continuously working on installing new railpower boxes (RPB) in our locomotives. We are happy to announce that we managed to install more than 200 RPB in to our locomotives so far. We are planning to finalise this project in 2021 and will keep installing two RPB in to our locomotives per week, to ensure this goal will be met as anticipated.
RPB are energy metering systems and are the optimum base for energy and cost-saving measures. The RPB offer transparency by making it possible for our partners and us to access past and real-time energy usage of operated locomotives at any time. AT MRCE we chose the ÖBB-Infrastructure RPB as they allow GPS tracking. GPS tracking brings a major advantage for the cross-border rail traffic, as it ensures correct country billing. By implementing RPB in to our locomotives, we aim to support our partners with the latest technology and enable a hassle-free and transparent operation.
