With more than 350 million gallons of fuel saved annually and 3.5 million metric tons of CO2 emissions reduction per year, Wabtec’s energy management solutions are powering a greener, cleaner, and more sustainable future.
Save fuel and reduce emissions. Improve train handling. Enhance train automation.
Locomotive fuel is a major factor in railroad operations, comprising, on average, 15-20% of operating expenses and 90% of a railroad’s greenhouse gas emissions. Wabtec’s integrated, scalable energy management solutions are built to maximize fuel efficiency to help rail operators meet their operational and environmental goals.
Trip Optimizer is a smart cruise control system for trains that reduces fuel usage and provides efficient train handling. It is certified by EPA to save 10% in fuel usage.
Trip Optimizer™ SmartHPT
SmartHPT provides incremental fuel savings by optimizing train performance for a given HPT (Horse Power per Ton) target.
Discover how Wabtec's digital technologies are enabling railroads to incrementally scale fuel savings to meet operational and environmental goals.
Harnessing the Power of Digital Solutions
