    South Africans to prepare ‘smart heavy haul industry’ roadmap

    The South African Heavy Haul Association (SAHHA) hosted a three-day technical workshop in Johannesburg in late 2018 as part of preparations for the 2019 International Heavy Haul Association (IHHA) conference to be held in Narvik, Norway, from June 10 to 14. Ten countries are a part of the IHHA and SAHHA, which was established in 2014, is a local chapter of the international organisation. Convened under the theme ‘Embracing the Fourth Industrial Revolution in Heavy Haul Railways’, the workshop was attended by more than 540 delegates from 18, mostly African, countries and was addressed by nine international speakers.

    Longest Production Train in the World

    In an unprecedented move, Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) successfully ran a 375 wagon manganese train. The testing of the train took place on Wednesday, 05 September 2018 over a distance of around 861 km, from Sishen to Saldanha. The test train is four (4) kilometres long and will be a production train with the highest number of wagons in the world. This initiative will break TFR’s own record and a world record of the 342 wagon iron ore production train.

    Transnet Freight Rail Breakthrough Technologies

    In a context of increasing competition, growing demand and tighter management of operational and capital costs, freight railways are constantly looking for ways to increase efficiency by boosting throughput and cutting costs. Below are several breakthrough technologies that have been developed and deployed by Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) in support of those objectives. Radio Distributed Power (RDP) RDP technology allows a single train driver to control more than one locomotive consist on the same train. TFR has used the technology to design and implement trains to longer lengths. Once-off test trains of longer than 7 km have been run, while daily production trains are operated at lengths up to 4 km. The RDP technology was recenlty applied to TFR’s export manganese trains, increasing lengths from 312 to 375 wagons with four locomotive consists per train. This allowed TFR to optimise infrastructure and rolling-stock utilisation and increase yearly export capacity by 1.4-million tons.

    Defining the heavy-haul railway of the future

    Heavy-haul railways are under constant pressure to optimise operational efficiency, a factor that has led the sector to spearhead many new technologies. Michael Roney, special advisor to the International Heavy Haul Association (IHHA), explains in this article, originally published in the International Rail Journal, how operators are collectively looking to push performance to new levels.
