The project has been structured in two main frameworks:
the operational part, where significant applications of railway vehicles are selected in order to give the opportunity to engine manufacturers testing their new concept engines, conceived to migrate form IIIA compliance to IIIB compliance, in the short time frame granted by the NRMM directives.
The scientific part investigates innovative solutions, including hybrid applications, which focuses on the further NRMM implementation phases and emission limits beyond IIIB. The potential technologies will be studied and analysed with regards to sustainable solution and the cost/benefits will be evaluated for the entire project.
