HCT Duo Demo


The HCT Duo Demo project involves testing the use of longer vehicle combinations for transportation between Hallsberg and Örebro. The purpose is to investigate the effects of employing these longer vehicle configurations concerning transport efficiency, transport costs, and traffic safety, among other aspects.

HCT Duo Demo comprises pilot tests of transportation using HCT vehicles between Hallsberg Terminal and logistics areas in the Örebro region. This involves a 30-meter-long vehicle with three axles and two trailers.

The primary objective of the project is to conduct an analysis of logistics and system effects on both subsystems and the entire multimodal transport chain between the Port of Gothenburg and the Örebro region. The project will also provide data for the development of foundational information for HCT vehicles to be implemented into the environmental calculation tool NTM CalC. Additionally, an investigation into how unprotected road users (cyclists) are affected by the longer vehicle train will be carried out through pilot tests on the Örebro - Garphyttan route.
