03 Upgrade of heating systems in stations, office buildings and workshops
Implementation into fleet
NS Poort/ProRail, SNCB/Infrabel
This project aims at further improving the energy efficiency of the heating systems using a variety of technological and control measures.
Most heating systems are not very efficient. In recent years these systems have improved a lot.
Elements include advanced heating control, thermostats, change of temperature settings, and exchange of ineffecient heating units. vehicle(s)
Estimated energy saving 1,75% of the total energy consumption of NS Stations.
A payback time of the combined measures is within 5 years.
- Heat pumps within stations
- Weather data based heating and cooling control of railway workshop
