Enterprise Agreement Enables Railway to Create Digital Twin of Operations

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- The 870 kilometers of Rail Baltica are divided into several sections across each of the three Baltic countries: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. An ongoing electric rail infrastructure project in the region, Rail Baltica's purpose is to provide sustainable passenger and freight service between participating countries and improve rail connections between central and northern Europe. To help engineers plan, construct, and manage maintenance tasks to make improvements, RB Rail AS and Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, have signed an enterprise agreement to integrate geographic information system (GIS) software across all project units.

"As the Rail Baltica project progresses, the amount of data that needs to be managed grows significantly, as do the needs of its GIS users, so the Esri Enterprise Agreement was a natural choice to ensure strengthening the ca ... Read more »

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- To become independent of Russian natural gas imports by 2027, the European Union is increasing near-term imports of US or Azerbaijan liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The main element of LNG, methane, is the second leading greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Environmental organizations warn that long-term supply contracts for the fossil LNG will undermine the European Green Deal. The German company Graforce has developed a methane electrolysis technology (plasmalysis) that uses LNG or LPG to produce hydrogen and solid carbon for dioxide-free energy generation. Compared to water electrolysis, plasmalysis requires only one fifth the energy to produce the same amount of hydrogen.

Plasmalysis is an electro-chemical technology that converts incoming LNG/LPG into clean-burning hydrogen and solid, high-purity carbon. A high-frequency plasma field generated by renewable electricity splits energy-rich hydrocarbon compounds (10 ... Read more »
