Low-noise bridging even of non-electrified track
Wide variety of customised solutions for emergency power and traction applications in the rail sector.
We offer you a wide range of applications
Spurs and secondary lines are often not electrified. Our rail traction solutions allow you to bridge sections of the track where there are no overhead lines or to open up spur lines. By using battery-based rail traction systems you can utilise the full performance of electrically powered trains even on these sections of the rail network. At stations that are only partially electrified, emission-free and low-noise shunting can even be carried out on secondary lines.
Our batteries can also be used for tunnel rescue locomotives. Because of the environment in which these trains operate, they must be emission-free. Get quote »
By using our innovative rail traction products, you will be reducing the amount you spend on costly fuels, such as diesel. Depending on the vehicle type, you can save several tens of thousand litres of diesel a year.
Railway vehicles with diesel engines account for approximately 1 % of traffic-related black-carbon emissions. Although only a relatively small number of these diesel trains are in use, and usually just for shorter distances, the advanced age of these locomotives and their long hours of operation mean that they are responsible for high levels of emissions in urban areas. This applies to railway stations, for instance, especially to low-level stations such as Stuttgart 21, and in locomotive sheds. By opting for an alternative power source, such as our rail traction batteries, you will be looking after the environment by reducing CO2 emissions – and saving money as well.
Diesel-powered passenger trains are responsible for massive noise pollution in an urban environment. Battery-powered trains significantly reduce the noise nuisance in cities and especially at railway stations.
Diesel-powered railway vehicles, such as specialist and track-laying machines, OLE or tunnel maintenance vehicles, generate noise while they are working. By using our lithium-ion-based battery systems you can achieve an enormous reduction in the noise nuisance caused by the operation of these vehicles.
Together we can design your customised solution
We offer project-specific rail traction batteries for a wide range of applications:
Why should you choose us?
Maximum performance guaranteed
Our lithium-ion batteries possess a high performance and energy density, which means that you are always assured of maximum performance. Our lithium-ion-based systems are of modular construction and individually designed for your vehicle. This process relies on the proven design principles and modules from our range of building blocks.
Large lithium-ion batteries represent a potential risk for people and for the environment. We have developed a safe battery system on the basis of extensive risk analyses. In doing so, we have taken not only active measures, such as safe operation of the battery system by implementing the Battery Management System, but also passive safety measures, such as fire-proof battery enclosures. Furthermore we have a filter system that binds the toxic substances released if the battery system is damaged.
Our systems meets all of these normative requirements applicable to a railway traction battery system. Independent, accredited laboratories have established and officially verified our compliance with all the safety-relevant norms and standards.
You can depend on us
It all fits
We offer you tailor-made solutions
Your satisfaction as a result of our customised solutions is of prime importance to us. Due to the modular design of our systems, there are no limits regarding your requirements. Together we can develop a solution that is tailor-made for you.
Our lithium batteries are low-maintenance. Apart from the annual safety check, only the air-conditioning unit required to ensure optimum operation of the battery system must be serviced once a year.
Focus on more important matters
So you can keep track
Our products are available with smart data monitoring and battery monitoring of the highest standard. Together we can develop a dashboard that meets your requirements and makes sure that you can always keep track of key information. With our advanced tools you will have a clear picture of what is going on, however large the volume of data.
In the unlikely event that something does go wrong, our engineers will examine the battery data to carry out a fault analysis in preparation for a site visit. We also use the battery data to advise you how best to operate your vehicles and to customise the operating regime for maximum energy savings and optimum operation of your battery system.
