How adopting data-driven decisions on trackbed maintenance can save 66% of costs

The main goal of the pilot was to demonstrate the capability of the KONUX Predictive Maintenance System for Rail Switches in trackbed health monitoring, trackbed health prediction, and maintenance validation. The ChallengeOptimisation of trackbed maintenance has been an old challenge for Infrabel. It was concluded that the costs currently associated with such interventions would be substantially reduced with the help of the KONUX system. The KONUX system revealed that this tamping operation caused degradation of the trackbed, which otherwise would have been kept sound. Example: Maintenance validationFor maintenance validation, 34 tamping actions were detected from 12 switches, of which 33 were evaluated.
