Safe and clean railway operations with SCiB™ battery system
Electrification of diesel locomotives are attracting much attention as a means to prevent global warming. Trains with SCiB™ can be rapidly charged during limited electrified sections. In non-electrified sections, it can travel only with electric power while effectively using electric energy generated while decelerating or braking at the stations.
SCiB™ is also suitable as backup power source which drive a train in case of emergency because of its safety and durability.
Safe and reliable operation
Traveling by electric power in non-electrified sections
Diesel locomotives have been used to travel non-electrified sections. SCiB™ makes it possible for trains to travel only with electric power because trains with SCiB™ can be rapidly charged during limited electrified sections and it can effectively collect and use regenerative energy during non-electrified sections.
Safe railway operations even in the event of a power failure
Nowadays, more and more trains are installing batteries as a backup power source. SCiB™ is ideal for the application because of its safety and durability.
