Hoppecke and Vivarail deal for battery-powered UK trains

Mon, 01/07/2019 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

Hoppecke Industrial Batteries and Vivarail are working together to design and integrate batteries to power passenger trains in the UK.

Vivarail’s Class 230 trains will utilise Hoppecke’s fast-charging lithium-ion battery storage system, which can take on 1 megawatt of power in just eight minutes, or enough for a “robust 65-mile range”.

The move comes as the UK moves toward its stated objective of phasing out diesel trains by 2040.
