CSXT manager wins environmental rail award
Jacksonville-based CSX Transportation's Don Robey has been selected as recipient of the 2007 John H. Chafee Environmental Award, presented by the Association of American Railroads, the company said Thursday.
Robey was recognized for his implementation of a horsepower reduction program that greatly reduces fuel consumption and locomotive emissions while he was director of engineering, the company said.
'Don Robey has been widely recognized within the rail industry for his perseverance in locomotive fuel savings and air emission reductions,” said Edward R. Hamberger, president and chief executive officer of AAR. 'This efficient technology has the potential to save an estimated 12,500,000 gallons of fuel in the next five years.'
