New Intercity Fleet
Constellation Rail (Downer Group and CRRC Changchun) responded to a request for tender (RFT) from the NSW government to deliver a New Intercity Fleet that will replace trains moving between Sydney and the Central Coast, Newcastle, the Blue Mountains and the South Coast. The project involves building and maintaining more than 500 new train carriages.
Edge Environment provided sustainability consulting advice, content and modelling to assist Constellation Rail with the development of the Environmental and Sustainability Management RFT deliverable; to support a successful bid.
The Environmental and Sustainability Management deliverable included climate change risk assessment, innovation workshops, construction energy efficiency, operational energy efficiency, initial life cycle assessment (LCA), initial social-LCA via Social Hotspot Database analysis, and waste management.
