- 19.03.2013 - 21.03.2013
- Rail Maintenance Hangar (Rijtuigenloods) - Amersfoort
From 19 to 21 March 2013, the 9th edition of the international exhibition Rail-Tech Europe will take place. For the second time since its first edition in 1997, the exhibition will be held in the Rijtuigenloods in Amersfoort. The successful venue change from the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht to Amersfoort in 2011 has led to an increasing number of visitors compared to the edition in 2009. The organisation is expecting Rail-Tech Europe to grow again this 2013 edition. More than 7,000 retailers, suppliers, manufacturers and rail professionals are expected to visit the exhibition, an increase of nearly 20%. Visitors can expect over 8,500 square meters of in- and outdoor exhibition space, including railway tracks with displayed machinery and equipment, some of which are firsts. A recurring part of the exhibition since 2003 is the Innovation Award and will be presented to the company with the most innovative development or product. Furthermore, several conferences and workshops on current rail topics will be organised by organisations such as Railforum, Rijkswaterstaat-Leefomgeving, Lloyd's Register Rail Europe and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment.
Since its first edition, Rail-Tech Europe has become the most important exhibition on rail technology in the Benelux. It has developed itself as an international networking platform where technology and the rail market meet in order to exchange knowledge and do business. This year, Rail-Tech Europe also has the honour of welcoming a German trade Delegation to the exhibition.
Product launches at Rail-Tech Europe 2013
Rail-Tech Europe offers a complete overview of products and services in the field of railway infrastructure and rolling stock. In addition, Bemo will present the KRE30, a new battery powered shunt. This shunting engine is emission-free and will be used by D'Ieteren, importer of the VAG group (including Volkswagen and Audi) in Belgium directly after the revelation at Rail-Tech Europe. Siemens will show a mock up of its new tram Avenio, that will arrive in 2014. It is currently built in Vienna for the city of The Hague.
Protec will launch the world's first Magneta Inspection Vehicle (MIV). The MIV is the successor of the Magneta, designed to remove and dispose grinding scraps and other ferrous materials from the tracks. The MIV however, is also equipped to distinguish fires and to carry out track inspections with various high-tech camera's. It is also possible to assemble a platform to inspect tunnels, catenary and perched objects.
On Tuesday 19 March, Railforum & Rijkswaterstaat-Leefomgeving will host a conference on sustainability. The focus will be on the opportunities of CO2 reduction for the rail industry. This conference will be in Dutch.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment will organise a Dutch presentation on ERTMS (European Rail Traffic Management System) on Wednesday 20 March. The role of ERTMS will be increasingly important in railway operations and improved significantly in recent years.

In the afternoon, Lloyd's Register Rail Europe will organise a conference in English on remote monitoring and its increasing relevance in today's market.
