Flash Battery is supporting the railway maintenance specialist Neotec to go electric thanks to its safety, performance and predictive analysis
The railway maintenance specialist machinery segment is among those leading the way in the shift towards hybrid and electric. Applications with lithium batteries offer high levels of energy efficiency, reduce operating costs for maintenance to zero, are safe, and eliminate noise and pollutant emissions, fully embracing the objectives of the European Green Deal.
While many businesses are moving towards this conversion, there are also the true trailblazers, those who are leading the way and who are now making their know-how available to more and more markets. One example of this kind of forward thinking is Neotec, a French company founded in 1991 which designs and produces bogie axles, hydrostatic drives and various kinds of specialist machinery. These include machines developed for aeronautics and aerial platforms for railway maintenance.
Since 2015, the latter has been the focus of a transition to hybrid propulsion across the entire range, split into two categories: Hybrid-E and Green-E, now electrified also thanks to the significant contribution of Flash Battery, who provided lithium batteries custom made for the specific requirements of this application.
