The train will start handling on a streets of Södertälje, Sweden, in Jun 2016
Scania is endeavour finish investigate into several forms of foundation technologies that could reinstate or element explosion engines. Induction is among a options being investigated and would engage vehicles wirelessly recharging their batteries around electrified roads.
Now, for a initial time in Sweden, Scania and a Stockholm formed Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) devise to exam a record in real-life conditions. The plan will be run by their jointly operated Integrated Transport Laboratory investigate centre.
Swedish Energy Agency will yield 9.8 MSEK for a project’s realisation. Other stakeholders embody Södertälje Municipality, Stockholm County Council and Tom Tits, a tech-oriented museum for children and youths.
As partial of a margin tests, a Scania citybus with an electric hybrid powertrain will go into daily operation in Södertälje in Jun 2016. At one of a train stops there will be a charging hire where a car will be means to refill wirelessly from a highway aspect adequate appetite for a finish tour in only six-seven minutes.
“The categorical purpose of a margin exam is to weigh a record in real-life conditions,” says Nils-Gunnar Vågstedt, Head of Scania’s Hybrid System Development Department. “There is huge intensity in a switch from explosion engines to electrification. The margin exam in Södertälje is a initial step towards wholly electrified roads where electric vehicles take adult appetite from a highway surface.”
To build an infrastructure and modify train fleets to vehicles that run exclusively on electricity will yield many advantages for a city. With a swift of 2,000 buses, a city can save adult to 50 million litres of fuel any year. This means a fuel costs diminution by adult to 90 percent.
Apart from induction, Scania’s investigate and growth dialect is looking during opposite record options, including a take-up of appetite from beyond electrical wires or from rails.
“Our business have opposite needs and prerequisites when it comes to switching to some-more tolerable transport. Therefore we don’t wish concentration on only one technology. Instead we are stability investigate in opposite areas,” says says Nils-Gunnar Vågstedt.
