LiOn battery for eco-friendly trains on show at Railtex 2017

LiOn battery for eco-friendly trains on show at Railtex 2017
At Railtex 2017, Hoppecke Industrial Batteries will show for the first time in the UK its Lithium-Ion (LiOn) battery designed specifically for use in locomotives with hybrid drives. The new Lithium-Ion battery enables smaller diesel engines to be fitted to trains by embracing hybrid technology. This means that a locomotive's high-performance engines are only required when coupling the carriages, once the train is in motion just a small portion of power is needed.
