The 11th International Heavy Haul Association Conference will be held at the prestigious Cape Town International Convention Centre, South Africa. ZTR will be sharing a booth with our South African partner, Surtees Railway Supplies.

The theme of the conference this year is: “Advancing Heavy Haul Technologies and Operations in a Changing World”.

With that in mind, the conference will include presentations of technical papers in research and development areas such as Rolling Stock, Railway Infrastructure and Operations. A technical workshop will be held before the conference where international railway technical experts will present selected topics within the Infrastructure and Rolling Stock Fields. Technical Tours will be provided for delegates including site visits to Transnet’s Heavy Haul railways and ports. Social Tours are also offered for delegates and partners to visit tourist attractions in Cape Town.
