We continuously focus on improving the efficiency of our locomotive fleet and reducing diesel emissions through a number of initiatives.
Our initiatives include advanced driving methodologies, driver-assist technology, high specification diesel, and reduced locomotive idling time using Auto Engine Stop-Start. Another sound business practice is to reduce diesel fuel consumption.
Research indicates that locomotives create less than 4% of NOx in comparison to other diesel emissions sources. (Source: NSW State of the Environment 2012 Report).
To progressively control and reduce diesel emissions across the state, the NSW Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) released its Diesel and Marine Emissions Management Strategy in February 2015.
We are committed to actively working with the NSW EPA and engaging with industry peers to ensure the appropriate implementation of this strategy.
