Fugro’s RILA Track System has been recognised with multiple wins at this year’s prestigious UK Rail Industry Awards. The awards recognise excellence and innovation in the rail industry and Fugro was one of the most shortlisted companies, receiving nominations for its innovative RILA Track System in five award categories and taking home awards in two categories: Cost Base Reduction and Design Innovation. In selecting Fugro the pan-industry judging panel was impressed with the innovativeness of the RILA system, which offers a fully remote survey system, rapidly acquiring data that can be used for a wide range of purposes related to track geometry, condition and safety. Commenting on the awards, Director Nick van den Hurk said, “These awards are a fantastic achievement for all the team. We wanted to create a way to undertake track survey safer, faster and significantly cheaper than conventional ground survey methods.”
