During the final weekend of January earlier this year, a violent winter storm swept across northern Europe, causing devastation, disruption and, unfortunately, loss of life.
Storm Malik first crossed Northern Ireland and Scotland before moving across to Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway, bringing wind gusts of 100 mph, destroying houses and cars, closing bridges, flooding, and of course, creating transport chaos.
As Kent Kolnes, Head of IT at Go-Ahead Nordic, recounts, “the storm caused significant damage to our infrastructure, including trees falling over lines, a power supply outage, and a tree on fire next to one station; which completely blocked the line.”
Go-Ahead Nordic use Signature Rail’s Fleet Manager (an on-the-day solution configured for TrainPlan) and Kent went on to recall how Go-Ahead Nordic was able to quickly and efficiently start getting services back up and running, thanks in no small part to the system.
Fleet Manager integrates with TrainPlan and minimizes the impact and consequences of disruption to services on the day of operations:
Storms like Malik are becoming increasingly frequent, are not just confined to northern Europe and always bring with them travel disruption, so if you would like to know more about Fleet Manager and how it can help you minimize disruption, please join us for this webinar.
