A Stockholm, les bus carburent aux eaux usées



Vendredi, 11 Décembre 2015


Actuellement, 36% des bus de la capitale suédoise roulent grâce aux eaux usées de la ville. Ces eaux sont mélangées à d’autres déchets liquides et déversées dans des bassins de fermentation. Le biogaz qui s’en dégage est ensuite injecté dans les réservoirs des véhicules. Cette technique était utilisée dans les années 40 pour alimenter les foyers de la ville en chauffage. Depuis les années 90, elle est utilisée dans le domaine des transports publics. A présent, plus de 850.000 m3 sont recyclés chaque année dans une usine de méthanisation. Le gaz est une énergie fossile qui émet du carbone mais moins que les autres carburants. Le passage au biogaz ne nécessite pas de reconfigurer le moteur du véhicule.

Paru dans CDM, Chantiers du Maroc n° 133 – Novembre 2015

In Stockholm, the bus thrive on sewage




Friday, December 11, 2015


Currently, 36% of buses in the Swedish capital roll through the sewage of the city. This water is mixed with other liquid waste discharged into the fermentation tanks. Biogas which emerges is then injected into the tanks of vehicles. This technique was used in the 40s to supply the homes of the heating in the city. Since the 90s, it is used in the field of public transport. At present, more than 850,000 m3 are recycled each year in a biogas plant. The gas is a fossil fuel that emits carbon but less than other fuels. The switch to biogas does not need to reconfigure the vehicle engine.

Ethanol has been the main non-diesel bus fuel for many years in Stockholm. Biogas has also been invested in, but IMO the trend is very very clear that all of these will be done away with in favour of battery electric buses.

Some more features from the Stockholm public transport network.

First up is one of the major hubs of southern Stockholm - Liljeholmen. Along with Gullmarsplan, this is one of the most important nodes for the southern region. The tunnelbana (metro/subway) - both red lines, the tvärbanan (circular light rail) and a large bus terminal are situated here.






The new suburb of Årstadal, right next to Liljeholmen, is served by the tvärbanan. The new suburb is developing nicely and it's good that it was planned to be well integrated with the public transport network.






Telefonplan metro station (red line to Fruängen). This suburb is quite an interesting one as it is the home of the old Ericsson factory.

dimlys, that's the Odenplan station, not the City station!

I like how they've done the walls differently and the cieling isn't just flat. Only way to beat that would be to clad the whole thing in screens

Here we go. I'm slowly getting through and documenting all tunnelbana stations in Stockholm, but here we have a few of more interest to you guys.

First up - Rissne station. This station is on the blue line to the north of Sundbyberg Centrum and has key events from human history on the walls. Quite an educational station one might say.






Next up is a bit more dreary, it's Duvbo station. Rather a grim atmosphere but if you scratch the surface there are some very interesting art pieces here for people to enjoy.






Next up is the entire Sundbyberg Centrum complex. This includes the rather nicely decorated Tunnelbana station, the rather more utilitarian Pendeltåg station and the newly constructed Tvärbanan station. This is quite interesting as this is the only place in Stockholm where all three modes of transportation meet!








Finally, a bit of a bonus shot of the Tvärbanan at Bällsta Bro in Sundbyberg Centrum. This is the waterfront light rail stop.

By the way: why tvarbanan is splitted into two parts in Alvik? You need to change tram even if the rail has it's continuation:

Because of the signal system, those are different.

That should be sorted at some point, though. I believe they are closing the Tvärbanan fairly soon to rectify this difference in the near future. Works are already starting somewhat this summer.

Tvärbanan
Summer infrastructure upgrades on Tvärbanan 22 june - 9 August
After midsummer, SL will begin a general technical upgrade of the Tvärbanan light railway. Noise barriers will be installed between Årstafältet and Årstaberg, and accessibility will be enhanced at the Trekanten and Gröndal stops. We will also be installing lubrication systems at multiple locations to reduce noise from the tracks. Along the Solna section, the signalling system will be upgraded to improve on-time perfomance.

How this will affect services
The Solna station – Alvik section will be closed from Monday 22 June until Sunday 9 August.
The Gröndal – Sickla udde section will be closed from Monday 6 July until Sunday 2 August.

Alternative routes
Replacement buses 22A and 22B will serve bus stops that correspond to all the usual stops on the Tvärbanan route.

The reason it is so in the first place is that the part south of Alvik came first, the part north of Alvik is fairly new. So the new bit has the new signalling system (by GE) that allows for more trains per hour (among other things) and also new trams. The new signalling system hasn't worked out though and is still not fully functional afaik. The new trams have had issues too, of course. Having a divided line was never the plan, but it's now been going on so long that it feels like a permanent situation :/
Like Svartmetall writes it is supposed to be fixed by the end of next summer though. Along with a one station extension at the other end of the line (connecting to another rail line) the whole line will convert to the new signalling system and have both old and new trams running.
If it all works it might mean changes to travel patterns than most think IMO especially since we've all grown accustomed to that break at Alvik

I hope so. I've disliked the disconnect and the lower frequency of the Solna branch. It's always been a bit... Inconvenient to use compared to the older system. Really the old Tvärbanan is a LOT better than the new stretch, and that seems rather odd to say!

I agree. To be a good option for going Alvik-Solna it should have turned east at Norrbyvägen (between stops Johannesfred and Norra Ulvsunda) and followed Hubudstaleden/Frösundaleden (which could have been turned into a boulevard with the trams in the center) all the way. But no, the connection to Sundbyberg was seen as highly important so now it goes on that big detour.

The Sickla addition propbably have high usage from the start but my prediction on the Solna branch is that it'll take time to build up passenger numbers after these years of crappy service.

A question regarding the T-banan. When I was in Stockholm back in May, I heard or read somewhere that the Hagsatra branch of the Green line was going to be moved either onto the Pendeltag or the Tvarbanan, in order to free up capacity for the Green lines overall.

Can someone confirm this for me either way? I would love to find out more information on it if it is true.

It will be moved, but not to Tvärbanan or the Pendeltåg.

It will be moved to the Blue subway line. When the Blue is extended to Nacka there will be a branch starting under Södermalm that will go by way of Gullmarsplan and a moved Globen station and take over the Hagsätra branch between Enskede Gård and Sockeplan. Enskede Gård will be closed as will the current Globen subway station. At Gullmarsplan the Blue line will be in a deep tunnel so the current station will likely see some basic remodeling at first and major re-development a few year later.

The point of it all is both to free up capacity for the remaining Green line branches and to give the Blue line a second southern branch that comes ready with loads of users.

I live on the Hagsätra branch and I gre up on the Blue line - so I'm all for it There are some who are upset at loosing direct connection to the central parts of Södermalm and Vasastan, but the City and SL have for once seen the sense in doing what's smart over the longer term.

If you mean Are there trains to the airport, then Yes, there are trains to the airport.
Only the main international airport though.
There's the Arlanda Express that goes direct from the Central Station to two stations at the airport for a price of about 20€.
The commuter trains going to Uppsala stop at Arlanda too, for a like 8-9€ extra on top of your normal Stockholm travelcard (don't know the single ticket price).
Most intercity trains going up north also stop at Arlanda. That's mostly to connect the northern cities directly to the airport, IMO a very good idea.

I found it quite peculiar at the time that the Pendeltåg to Uppsala went via Arlanda and the regional trains there went via Märsta, with all the Märsta Pendeltåg trains not going any further. But I guess thinking further about it, that does make some sense in terms of segregating services.
