Skeleton Technologies has signed a contract with CAF Energy & Automation, a world producer of electrical energy options for the rail business, to produce supercapacitors in trams powered by CAF P&A’s OESS-s (On Board Power Storage Programs).
Skeleton’s cells will reportedly be included in Greentech OESS portfolio already utilized by a number of the main railway corporations worldwide to supply innovative options to power restoration, peak shaving and catenary-free functions.
Headquartered in Donostia – San Sebastian (Spain), CAF Energy & Automation has chosen Skeleton Applied sciences to produce supercapacitor cells to its Greentech OESS-s mentioning a number of revolutionary functions: The supercapacitor expertise can considerably enhance trams’ effectivity – lowering prices and CO2 emissions, it may well additionally allow compatibility between present restricted energy in infrastructure and the demand of excessive peaks of energy of recent trams, and at last it allows a novel resolution for 100% catenary free options working solely with ultra-fast charging in stations.
“Skeleton’s cells provide very excessive effectivity and low warmth losses, and their high-power density allows additional weight and area financial savings. Due to this fact, they’re an ideal match to the rail and tram business. Including them to our power storage techniques will vastly profit our present and future prospects, permitting to maximise power effectivity at an unprecedented degree.” CAF Energy & Automation explains.
Taavi Madiberk, co-founder and CEO of Skeleton Applied sciences says: “When it comes to public transportation, trams are already a really energy-efficient resolution. Nonetheless, our ultracapacitors can take them to the subsequent degree permitting the utmost power restoration. We’re very glad to now collaborate with CAF Energy & Automation and provide our cells to make trams that use their power storage techniques a number of the most trendy, price and energy-efficient on this planet. Our ultracapacitors are already probably the most superior ones available on the market however due to our curved graphene materials, we’re planning to extend our benefit even additional, providing extra dependable, long-life options to high-power batteries.”
