This event will look at how composites are already being used in the rail industry. The use of composites in rail electrification is gaining popularity due to their ability to lower costs and reduce embodied carbon emissions. Composites offer a lightweight alternative to traditional materials like steel, resulting in decreased transportation and installation expenses while also enhancing energy efficiency during operations. Their corrosion resistance extends the lifespan of rail infrastructure, reducing long-term maintenance costs. Composites are already being employed in the construction of overhead catenary systems.
Noel Dolphin is a director at Furrer+Frey, an electrification company. With 25 years of experience in construction, 23 of which are dedicated to the rail industry, Noel's expertise lies in managing electrification projects. He began his career at London Underground, working on a journey time projects, and later joined Network Rail, where he continued to oversee electrification projects.
For the past 11 years, Noel has been leading electrification projects at Furrer+Frey. He is a fellow of the Permanent Way Institute and sits on the PWI's electrification committee.
A look at how attitudes to safety have changed from the opening of the West Durham to Stockton line with the first purpose-built passenger carriage in 1825, through to the present day.
In this Yorkshire and Humber knowledge sharing session, a broad overview will be covered on the use of laser scanning and how the benefits of this can be used to aid in project design, delivery and improve efficiency.
Civil engineering students of the Republic of Ireland, join us for an informal 1-hour workshop to enhance your CV and LinkedIn profile. The event is a great opportunity to ask for feedback on your CV to practicing civil engineers.
