BV AIRS Attends AUSRAIL 2009

Bureau Veritas Asset Integrity and Reliability Services (BV AIRS) featured a stand at the AUSRAIL 2009 exhibition held from 17- 19, November 2009 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

Bureau Veritas Asset Integrity and Reliability Services (BV AIRS) featured a stand at the AUSRAIL 2009 exhibition held from 17- 19, November 2009 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

AUSRAIL is a railway management forum, designed to facilitate discussion of the broader management aspects of running railways in the modern political and economic environment, including capital investment, maintenance and strategy, which brings in senior railway executives from all over Australia.

The strategy of BV-AIRS' attendance at the AUSRAIL 09 convention was to acquaint senior level railway management and contract maintenance service providers to the railway industry, with Bureau Veritas' experience in the industry and their strengths in compliance testing and certification. Bureau Veritas is recognised as a world leader in inspection, training, certification and quality assurance systems, and individual railway networks are now requiring experts to check infrastructure and rollingstock – all of which needs to be backed up with certificates of competence.

AUSRAIL was well attended this year and the stand attracted a significant number of potential business leads and enquiries. Representing BV AIRS at AUSRAIL were Mark Heady (Manager Rail Industry Products), Simon Mortimore (Business Development Officer for Specialised NDT Technology), Adam Van Dyke (Manager Technology and Innovation Centre), Monty Luke (Adelaide Branch Manager) and Simon Harris (Laboratory Manager - Thebarton.)

As part of the exhibition, BV AIRS displayed its "Shaftest" technology for testing railway rollingstock axles, some failed draft gear components from a train inspected recently and also the Fairclough Corporation designed "Handwave" unit, designed to place the same testing technology used in advanced ultrasonic rail test cars onto a portable "trolley based" platform. BV-AIRS has proposed using this type of equipment to carry out testing on short sections of railway track such as turnouts and crossovers in busy Metropolitan rail systems. These displays generated significant interest among rail staff.
