The director of Advantage Austria, Mr. Peter Hasslacher, presented the Energy Globe Award to Kovis for the FUTURA project in Brdo pri Kranju on Thursday, October 17th, in which a new generation of brake discs for freight wagons was developed and patented. They allow higher energy efficiency and 5 decibels quieter train operations. This will improve the lives of the 55 million people living in Europe near rail tracks.
The Energy Globe Award is one of the prestigious environmental awards received by projects focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energy and conservation of resources. The awards are presented nationally and internationally.
