SYSTRA Knowledge XChange
Systra Scott Lister held the first of its 2021 Knowledge Xchange events at our Brisbane offices in March 2021, presented by David Bishop and Meidi Bouzerar.
David and Meidi are two of our key Technical Directors, specialising in Operational Readiness and digital train control systems. The event, attended by a broad variety of clients from the public and private sector, was an excellent opportunity to welcome them to the Australian rail community and for them to share experience and lessons learnt deploying ETCS, CBTC & ATO projects (amongst others!) across the world. Including the Danish Banedanmark ETCS Program, ETCS projects for the French national operator SNCF, the United Kingdom and also various projects in the Middle East.
Key lessons in the complexity of successfully obtaining approvals for and bringing these systems into operation. As well as the role the national sustainability agenda, with a target of reducing CO2 emissions by 70% by 2030, played in the Banedanmark Program. Also a good opportunity for our guests to ‘Xchange’ knowledge and experiences with each other of the Australian based projects with which they are involved.
