Dynamic Coupling technology - solution for a more sustainable and greener world

Coupling trains in motion prevents wasting enormous amounts of energy for stopping at stations, decelerating, and accelerating again. It also cuts CO2 emissions and provides much better usage of rail infrastructure and equipment for sustainable mobility. Passengers, freight and parcels transport can gain huge benefits by using Dynamic Coupling and significant impact in promoting the official UN sustainable development goals. Based on an analysis made by BDO experts, DTS technology actively contributes to the achievement of the following SDG goals:

Direct impact:

Contribute to build resilient infrastructure and foster innovation

DTS uses upgraded, existing infrastructure and retrofits rolling stock to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency. Our clean and environmentally sound technology reduces energy consumption from transportation and increases the usage of clean energy by improving rail traffic efficiency on the network and reconfiguring rail services (shorter and direct trains)

DTS solution facilitates and improves the accessibility and mobility for people and goods and thereby contributes to reducing income and other inequalities

With Dynamic Coupling system, trains do not have to stop or decelerate to pick-up passengers or let them step down at stations. Instead, a direct train departing from an intermediate station can be ‘picked up’ and coupled on the run with another express or inter-city train. DTS technology can provide a direct train service from every urban and suburban station to city centers, increasing mobility for those commuting to work/other purpose. Providing better and higher frequency service of direct trains from suburbs or small vicinity settlements into city, as well as on inter-city and even international lines, DTS technology helps opening new job opportunities and provides better, affordable public transport commuting options to anyone, anywhere.

Promote Sustainable Cities by reducing road congestion

DTS provides access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all creating the much needed modal shift from road to rail. Expanding public transport, dynamically coupled trains reduce road traffic congestion and all related environmental and human costs.

Combat Climate Change and its harming impact Implementing DTS technology significantly reduces CO2 Emissions by facilitating the shift of freight and passengers from road and airlines to rail. Using existing railway infrastructure, Dynamic Coupling increases a single track capacity by ~ 40%, enables shared infrastructure and reuse of existing resources for greater transport efficiency.

Indirect impact:

DTS solution promotes decent economic growth by increasing productivity through reduced commuting time and by providing better access to employment zones to people living outside main cities
DTS Parcels Delivery model enables for which wagons with parcels to connect and piggyback to a passenger or freight trains. Decoupling in the right area, this mode of parcels delivery offers more flexibility than regular, long freight trains. According to rough calculation, over 70 % of CO2 emissions can be reduced by shifting parcels from the road to rail using Dynamic Coupling.
DTS solution prevents the need for incremental land and deforestation in order to expand rail infrastructure and thereby it protects and promotes the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems
