HERMES

Rail freight transportation is a rising activity of FGC, as it is the case of the transport of potash and salt between Súria mines and Barcelona's Harbour through Llobregat-Anoia rail line due to it shows high efficiency as transport mean in terms of land use, energy consumption and low greenhouse gas emissions. However, rail's market share of freight transport and its economic efficiency continues nowadays to be limited. With the objective of improving the performance at both operational and maintenance level, this project develops a novel freight wagon which holistically address the aspects that will optimize this activity:

- Enhanced logistic operations

- Higher wagon load capacity

- Optimised loading and unloading processes

- Development of predictive maintenance

- Increase wagons flexibility in order to foster intermodality and allow a diversification of carried goods.
