Under the title “Operational Safety Infrastructure”, SCAUT invited its members to the 2023 year-end event at this year’s host Andritz Hydro AG in Kriens. The exciting lectures provided detailed insights into various aspects and technological solutions for ensuring trouble-free operation and maintenance.

Building on the events surrounding the derailment of the freight train on August 10, 2023 in the Gotthard Base Tunnel, Milo Degiorgi and Tom Gut from SBB Infrastructure impressively described their experiences in dealing with risk analyses, their probability, and how to deal with a loss event.

Robert Binder from biprotec GmbH presented the development steps of a revolutionary new escape door that meets the highest requirements for operational safety, maintenance and cost-effectiveness.

Matthias Heimhalt from Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group provided an overview of applied, predictive maintenance systems, which, based on the latest measurement technologies, diagnose, among other things, the current condition of railway routes.

Michael Fauteck and Michael Lierau then presented an intelligent remote maintenance system that can precisely determine the system status and upcoming maintenance intervals using a wide range of operating data at the example of Hydro Powerplants.

Christian Vajda then introduced the company Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise and its network and communication solutions as a new member of SCAUT.

Felix Amberg supplemented the program with various information about the support association and projects in which SCAUT members are invited to participate.

The event was rounded off with a factory tour and a pre-Christmas reception at Andritz Hydro AG.
