Parallel hybrid for rail tunnel maintenance
By Roberta Prandi19 January 2021
Transfluid was chosen by Sistemi Ferroviari - an Italy-based company specializing in the design and construction of railway vehicles – for the delivery of its first Parallel-Hybrid system to operate wagons used for tunnel maintenance, where internal combustion engines are less and less accepted.
Transfluid explained, its diesel-electric Parallel- Hybrid system is a plug&play product, which comprehends mechanical and electrical components, including signal and power cables. The Parallel-Hybrid allows operation in pure electric mode when it is necessary and in diesel mode where it is permitted.
