Our offer an environmentally-friendly mobility solution and can be added to various trains ranging from high-speed and commuter to regional and automated people mover systems (APMs). Trains with our low-emission battery technology can already operate catenary-free for distances up to 100 kilometres.
For example, we delivered 15 catenary-free trams with our MITRAC traction batteries, in partnership with one of our Chinese joint ventures, for the city of Nanjing in China. Today, Nanjing’s trams can operate on 90 per cent of its lines without overhead cables, re-charging seamlessly during passenger service.
Making sustainable mobility a long-term reality requires more than the drive to develop eco-friendly vehicles. Today’s challenges require deep thinking and need to be based on a holistic approach that leverages the hidden potential of innovative subsystems to actively increase vehicle performance while drastically cutting emissions. Luckily, we’ve already jumped on this bandwagon and are making impressive leaps to reach our performance and sustainability goals.
