Proven life cycle efficiency

Railway technologies and infrastructures imply a long life cycle. Its technical and economic life span easily comprises 30-50 years. The railway system of the Netherlands is rooted in a cost-conscious tradition and recognized for many years the importance of reducing costs, particularly in regard to long year maintenance and operation of vehicles, equipment, infrastructure and other rail-related components (e.g. station buildings) . Therefore the Dutch approach strongly focuses on a deliberate and consequent optimization of life cycle efficiency.
DRS presents showcases that exhibit all challenges to improve and enforce life-cycle efficiency the Dutch way in a cutting edge collection of rail-related projects.
