Anti-Icing HS

Anti-Icing for High Speed Trains

The objective is to develop the world’s first High speed Anti-icing System; a machine that automatically applies an anti-icing fluid on moving high speed trains. It will lead to a reduction of 80% fewer ice projectiles and 50% less component damage under the wagons, increase savings with regards to de-icing (50-100% less de-icing), and significantly reduce delays and cancellations (which today costs the European society more than a billion euros a year).
