The last 30 years has seen a significant development in railway traction, with the debate on energy and emissions in transport now high on the political agenda there are key challenges ahead for railway traction engineers, as well as many exciting opportunities.
It is therefore increasingly vital that engineers are able to understand the need for maintenance of the infrastructure and the life cycle of electric traction systems used on the railway.
Electric Traction Systems (ETS) is a highly popular professional development course that has been specifically designed to help engineering professionals meet these challenges by providing a wealth of knowledge and technical understanding around electric traction systems, delivered by an international programme of speakers and industry experts.
ETS 2012 saw attendees from Transport for London, Mott MacDonald, Eversholt Rail, Tube Lines Ltd, Balfour Beatty Rail, Network Rail and many more.
