Russian Railways has announced an open request for innovation in the field of anti-icing coatings of electric current collector elements. This was reported by the press service of the holding.
Currently, special grease is applied to the current collectors of electric trains to protect against ice during maintenance and repair. It must be applied at intervals of 2 to 60 days, depending on the protected nodes of the train. In this regard, the company is looking for developers of innovative material with anti-icing properties throughout the winter.
To participate in the open request, innovative decisions are made to eliminate the repeated repeatability of operations to apply anti-icing material to the current collector elements in the winter, as well as to provide protection from the ice of the current collector elements (lifting springs, movable frames and skid aprons).
Applications are accepted from July 1 to July 12, 2020 through the specialized section “Inquiries” of the automated system “Single Window of Innovations of Russian Railways” of the corporate Internet portal of Russian Railways.
During 2020, at least 33 open inquiries are planned for Russian Railways , affecting various areas of activity of Russian Railways divisions.
