Graffiti damage runs into the millions for rail operators
Thesis presented at University of Twente
Yesterday was a special day. We congratulated our graduation intern Ellen Siebers who successfully presented and defended her Master Thesis 'LCA of film as part of the conservationsystem on trains:
Current and future scenarios.'
It presents the results of the (prospective) life cycle assessment (LCA) conducted for Fleetshield to answer two main questions:
1. Is a train’s conservation system with film better for the environment than a conservation system with only paints?
2. What is the best direction for the future when looking at the environmental impact of film?
To answer the first question, a life cycle assessment (LCA) was carried out to compare the conservation system of a train without film, to the conservation system including film.
The results of this LCA are very promising. To answer the second question, scenario modeling was used and Ellen created an interactive tool especially for Fleetshield to be able to offer a frame of reference in the discussion about future directions.
The diploma was presented to her by Prof.Dr.Ir. L.A.M. van Dongen, professor Maintenance Engineering and chairman of the Department of Design, Production and Management at the University of Twente with whom Fleetshield has maintained excellent contact for many years. We thank #NSand #3M for their cooperation and the faculty team 'Engineering Technology' from Twente University for their continuous support. We are very proud of Ellen and we wish her a very successful future career.#DecisionMaking #Railway #AssetManagement #Engineering #LifeCycle #environment #conservation #costsaving #branding #sustainability #wastemanagement #environmental #watermanagement #continuousimprovement #film #thesis #executiveboard#graduation
