Business environment and management strategy

JR West has its own railway networkShinkansen,Kinki area OfConventional line(Urban network), It is roughly divided into three types of conventional lines other than the Kinki region such as Hokuriku and Chugoku regions.[7].

Of the Kinki region, JapanThree major metropolitan areasPositioned as one ofKeihanshindistrict(KansaiArea) transportation, as it is called "private railway kingdom"Kinki Nippon Railway,Hankyu Corporation,Hanshin Electric Railway,Sanyo Electric Railway,Nankai Electric Railway,Keihan Electric RailwayAnd many morePrivate railwayWhile JR West is in a competitive relationship with these private railway companies, they are segregated according to the distance used and the destination.Transfer transportation,Free ticket, Etc., at private railway companiesICOCA・ ICOCACommuter PassThere is a cooperative relationship with the release of.山陽新幹線における都市間輸送ではIn intercity transportation on the Sanyo ShinkansenaircraftIs in a competitive relationship with.Capital AreaJR East, which has a conventional line network,Tokaido ShinkansenTo holdTokai passenger railwayCompared to (JR Tokai), the Keihanshin area has strong private railway lines in parallel, the Sanyo Shinkansen has only about half the demand of the Tokaido Shinkansen, and the Hokuriku region of China is in the red.Local lineIt is said that the management base is relatively weak among the three companies in Honshu because it has a large number of companies.[12][13].. HoweverHokkaido passenger railway(JR Hokkaido),Shikoku Passenger Railway(JR Shikoku),Kyushu passenger railwayManagement is stable compared to the so-called "three island companies" of (JR Kyushu).

Immediately after its inauguration, JR West called the suburban routes in the Kinki area "Urban Network".221 seriesIntroduction of suburban vehicles such asTokaido-Sanyo Main Line(Lake Biwa Line,JR Kyoto Line,JR Kobe Line)ofMultiple linesIncrease the speed and increase the speed of conventional line trains that make maximum use of, especially sign trainsLimited expressWe have strengthened profitability by focusing on areas with a large population along the railway lines by working to expand the operation ofAlso"Three city storyWe have implemented a campaign and have been trying to form a brand along the line[Note 7].

Currently, from the viewpoint of usage and profitability, Sanyo Shinkansen andHokuriku Main Line OfLimited expressWe are making capital investment mainly on routes in the Kinki region, and there is considerable differentiation between routes in the Kinki region and local routes (""vehicleSee section).Hiroshima area (Hiroshima City Network) Then in 2015Sanyo Main LineEtc227 seriesUntil the introduction of JR, new cars have not been introduced for about 30 years since the inauguration of JR, and it is still in other Chugoku regions such as the Okayama area.National railwayMost of them are vehicles from the times.Also, even in the Kinki area, it was a dollar box line from the JNR era, and since there was no direct competitor line, no special differentiation was required.Osaka Loop LineRegarding, in 2013Osaka Loop Line Remodeling ProjectUntil the start of the program, the introduction of new cars and capital investment in stations would be delayed considerably compared to the JR Kobe Line and JR Kyoto Line.

Medium-term management plan from 2008 to 2012[14] In the above, "Sanyo Shinkansen transportation service" and "improvement of the value of line districts in the Keihanshin area" are clearly set as priority fields as "promotion of business strategy for sustainable development", while 10 to 15 years later As a measure for the local line in the “construction of a management concept from a long-term perspective”, “downsizing of local line facilities and systems” and “<bus,Dual mode vehicle Including the conversion of transportation modes to (DMV), etc.> Providing optimal transportation services for the region ”has been set as the management direction.

Sanyo ShinkansenAnd limited express trains departing and arriving at Keihanshin (Hokuriku Main Line,Kisei Main Line, San'in area), a conventional line in the Kinki areaUrban networkIn the area, we are aggressively introducing new rolling stock to meet the increasing number of trains and speeding up. On the Sanyo Shinkansen500 seriesWas developed and operated for the first time in Japan at 300km/h,Tokaido-Sanyo Main LineThen,Limited express-fastTo221 seriesSince the introduction of the, the new model vehicles have been actively introduced to the normal and high-speed vehicles. Conventional line vehicles are manufactured based on the concept of "bright, quiet and comfortable" or "bright, quiet and comfortable ride" that was launched when the 221 series train was newly designed.[131]..In this way, because we prioritized the introduction of new cars in the Urban Network, the introduction of new limited express trains on conventional lines was in 1992 (681 series), which is the latest among the six JR companies.

In the Hokuriku region of China other than the Urban Network, there are not many competitive routes with other companies, and it was inherited from the Japanese National Railways, reflecting the difficult business environment.103 series-201 series-105 series-113 series-115 series-457 seriesEach train andKiha 40 series diesel trainIn many cases, vehicles such as these are used after life extension work or remodeling into sightseeing trains with a view to using them for about 40 to 50 years.[Note 19].. A new general-purpose vehicle introduced by JR West that does not carry a local burden (introduced by JR West's own judgment)Non-electrifiedIt was put into almost all areas of the service from 1991 to 1995 to improve the constitution of local lines.Kiha 120 typeDiesel train (89 cars),Seto Ohashi LineRapid "Marine linerWas put in the Okayama area in 2003223 series 5000 series(14 cars)[Note 20] There are only 2 cars in 103 series, for exampleHiroshima cityHas a population of over 100 millionGovernment-designated cityDespite this, the Hiroshima area (Hiroshima City Network) Is a new type of rolling stock in 2015 after the privatization of JNR.227 series) Was occupied by vehicles from the JNR era. Similarly, it is a government-designated cityOkayama CityExcept for the rapid "Marine Liner", almost all of the Okayama area is a Japanese National Railways vehicle, but it is scheduled to be replaced with a new model based on the 2023 series from 227.Approximately 6% of general-purpose diesel railcars occupy the Kiha 40 series manufactured during the JNR era, and except for the Kiha 120 series mentioned above, they were introduced to the San'in area from 2000 to 2003.Kiha 121/126 seriesIntroduced for the Kishin Line in 2008 and 2009Kiha 122/127 seriesUnlike JR East and JR Kyushu, there are no plans to introduce battery-powered trains.

Since the 2010s, the introduction of new vehicles in the Urban Network has been completed, but in other areas the vehicles have become significantly deteriorated, so in the Hokuriku area.419 series・475 series・457 series・415 series置き換えを目的に配備された521系(2009年以降配備の2次車・3次車の98両、2020年以降配備の七尾線向け30両)、広島地区の115系置き換えを目的に配備された227系(2014年以降の5年間で276両投入[85]), etc., a new vehicle has also appeared for the local ward based on the management judgment of JR West.

In addition, in some parts of the Keihanshin area, JNR vehicles remain,Osaka East Line-Yamato Line(Kansai Main Line)・Nara Line-Kusatsu Line-Kosai Line-Kakogawa Line-Bantan LineAs of May 2021, JNR rolling stock is still in operation.Fukuchiyama LineUntil 2015,Osaka Loop Line-Sakurajima LineUntil 2019[Note 21],Hanwa LineThen, the Japanese National Railways vehicle was in operation until March 2020.The 3 series of JNR trains on the Osaka East Line and Yamatoji Line are scheduled to be discontinued by 201 by replacing them with the 221 series.[132].

In the past, it was the only company among the six JR passenger companies that had its own commercial vehicles on board all five other JR passenger companies, but in 6, the temporary sleeper limited express "Twilight expressHas been abolished, so there is no longer any access to JR Hokkaido.Commercial vehicles owned by JR West have continued to enter the other four companies.[Note 22]..In prefectures other than our own area, Tokaido Shinkansen and conventional lines are in Gifu prefecture, Aichi prefecture, Shizuoka prefecture, Kanagawa prefecture, Tokyo, conventional lines are in Kagawa prefecture, and Hokuriku / Kyushu Shinkansen are in Gunma prefecture, Saitama prefecture. , Saga prefecture, Kumamoto prefecture, Kagoshima prefecture. JR West has the largest number of prefectures other than its own area where its own vehicles enter among the six JR passenger companies.

Most of the vehiclesKinki VehicleKawasaki Heavy IndustriesManufactured in[Note 23], PartlyJapanese vehicle manufacturing[Note 24],Hitachi, Ltd.[Note 25],Niigata Transis[Note 26] There is a product. The train control deviceMitsubishi Electric,ToshibaMade in the majority, someHitachi, Ltd.,Toyo Denki SeizoThere is something made of. The engine of the diesel carKomatsu WorksSA6D125 series and SA6D140 series are standard. In JR West, although there are in-house types of train control devices and bogies,diesel engineHas not been given an in-house format.

In addition, we often develop vehicles in collaboration with other JR groups, and JR Tokai is for the Tokaido / Sanyo Shinkansen.700 series-N700 seriesAnd for sleeper express285 series, JR Kyushu is the N700 series for direct access to the Kyushu Shinkansen, and JR East is for the Hokuriku Shinkansen.W7 series (E7 series)Are being developed respectively.

Master controllerIs the same as private railways and subways in Kansai after 221 seriesHorizontal axis twin lever typeIs adopted.The Shinkansen 500 series also follows this method, which is the only case for Shinkansen trains.

Since the 221 series, the affiliation notation of conventional line vehicles has usually been written on the wife's side (same as Shinkansen vehicles), but after the 521 series 3rd car and 227 series, the JNR era and other JR passenger companies It came to be written on the side in the same way as, and the 207 series has moved the position of the affiliation notation due to the constitution improvement work.

Since 2009, as part of cost reduction measures, the body color of general steel vehicles, which had been different for each region and route, has been changed to a single color.[Note 27], The train has been changed to a single color of yellow in the Setouchi area, dark green in the Kyoto / Kitakinki area, blue-green in the Wakayama area, blue in the Hokuriku area, and madder in the Nanao line. In addition, diesel railcars are available in all areas except for some areas.Red No. 5The Kiha 120 type 200 series, which appeared after the inauguration of JR, has also been repainted in vermilion No. 5.

Introducing new cars at the expense of railway lines

Furthermore, in the case of equipment improvement of existing vehicles, there are cases where the same scheme is applied when the equipment is improved beyond the renewal due to life extension measures (running in Wakayama prefecture).105 seriesTowheelchairNewly installed compatible toilets, used for sightseeing trains for Hiroshima and Yamaguchi areasKiha 47 type 7000 seriesRemodeling costs, etc.). This results in a service gap depending on whether or not the local governments in the jurisdiction actively support JR, and also includes the urban network that introduces many new vehicles at its own expense based on management decisions. There is a service gap.

The Kiha 122 series and Kiha 127 series diesel railcars were the last to be introduced at the expense of the local government, and new vehicles after that have been introduced at the expense of JR West.

Development of a new generation tilting vehicle

In JR West, on December 1993, 12, a new generationVehicle with tilting bodyAsWEST-21Announced the concept[139].. This is to reduce the length of one car to 1m, which is half that of the conventional car, and to lower the height of the car by 10cm.Articulated bogieWhile the wheels are one axissnakeThe aim is to develop a vehicle that moves smoothly like this, aiming to improve the maximum speed from 120 km / h to 130 km / h, and it was said that it would start operation on the Hakubi line and Kisei main line in about 6 years (TalgoSee also).

After that, there was no announcement of trends regarding the "WEST-21" concept from JR West, and "" on the Kisei Line.KuroshioIs operated in381 seriesAs a replacement for (natural pendulum type vehicle), it does not have a body tilting function despite its low center of gravity structure.287 seriesWill be introduced[140], The above-mentioned new generation vehicle has not been introduced yet.

In-house power generation equipment

PredecessorMinistry of Railways・ Kanagawa Prefecture to supply electricity to lines in the Greater Tokyo Area since the time of the National RailwaysKawasaki CityKawasaki kuBuilt inKawasaki Thermal Power StationAnd NiigataOjiyaIn the vicinityShinanogawa Power Station[Note 3]Because it owns, unlike other railway operators, it is along the railway linePower transmission and distribution business operator[Note 4]Even if the power supply from is stopped, it is hardly affected.In fact, it happened on August 2006, 8Large-scale power outageIn case ofKeiyo LineThere was no effect except for some sections.

However, it occurred on October 2004, 10.Niigata Chuetsu EarthquakeThen, the hydroelectric power plant in Ojiya City was damaged, and the supply capacity of its own power generation could not cover the electricity.TEPCOWe responded by purchasing electricity from Japan and increasing the amount of power generated by other power plants, but in the spring of 2006, the restoration work was completed and the operation was fully resumed.ButWater right OfAbuse of AbuseAs a result, the Miyanaka Intake Dam was suspended from use, and as a countermeasure against the power shortage, it was decided to make up for it by increasing the number of thermal power plants under its umbrella and increasing the purchase amount of TEPCO.Shinanogawa power plant resumed operation on June 2010, 6[16][17].

Woke up on January 2011, 3Tohoku-Pacific Ocean Earthquake(Great East Japan Earthquake), Due to the shutdown or damage of the TEPCO power plantPower shortageNextRotational blackout(Rolling blackouts) was implemented.At that time, Niigata Prefecture, where the Miyanaka Intake Dam is locatedTokamachiThe Shinanogawa power plant will increase the amount of water taken by the mayor's proposal and the instruction of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, and increase the amount of power generation, and exchange power with TEPCO.[18]I went. In addition, JR East also reduced the lights at stations and reduced the number of trains to save electricity.

In May 2020, in 5CO2It has been announced that it aims to achieve "substantially zero" emissions[19].. In the goal,Wind power,Sun light,GeothermalSuch as再生 可能 エネルギーBy 2050, it will cover 50-60% of the energy used in the railway business in conjunction with hydroelectric power generation.

Driving accidents and transportation obstacles

Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and TourismAccording to the survey of, the mileage per million km in 20 on the conventional line partDriving accidents, transportation obstaclesThe number of cases was 0.60 and 4.96, respectively (of which 1.40 was due to internal causes). On the other hand, the average number of JR railway operators in the same year was 0.60 and 4.92 (including 1.45 due to internal causes), respectively.
