Innovative winter maintenance system for public transportation areas using regenerative energy

The winter maintenance system developed is based on a seasonal heat accumulator, which heats public transportation areas in winter using energy stored in the summer. The rail platform operated for testing purposes proved its effectiveness. The new system eliminates the need for de-icing salt, which not only benefits the environment but, when combined with the low temperature fluctuations in the component, increases the usage period of the area.
