Final Report - ISTU (Integrated standard transportation unit for self-guided freight container transportation systems on rail)

Project ID: 506243
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of the ISTU-STREP project, which investigated, developed and demonstrated a cost effective integrated propulsion unit and an individual self-driven two-container, cost improved rail platform wagons for freight container transport between ports and cargo distribution centres. The new motor concept integrating all major propulsion features is a key technology suited for the designed harbour vehicle called ISTU.

The report begins with an executive summary on the project's motivation, background and objectives. The summary describes also the project's expected and achieved results. There is later a little more on the work performed, the consortium involved and the technical characteristics of the innovative vehicles and systems developed.
