Bombardier to develop battery-powered train

At a ceremony held today at the InnoTrans exhibition in Berlin, Germany’s Transport Minister, Alexander Dobrindt handed over an innovation funding letter of intent to Bombardier Transportation. The funds will support Bombardier’s programme to develop a BOMBARDIER TALENT 3 electric multiple unit (EMU) equipped with BOMBARDIER PRIMOVE battery technology for service on non or partly-electrified rail routes.

The Federal Ministry of Transport is supporting the innovation initiative by offering approximately 4 million euro under the government’s ‘Electro-mobility Funding Guideline Subsidy Directive’. Bombardier is carrying out the project with the Technical University of Berlin and its associated partners Südwestdeutsche Verkehrs-AG and Nahverkehrsgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg.

The TALENT 3 EMU with PRIMOVE battery system will provide an environmentally friendly alternative to diesel trains operating on non-electrified lines. The results will significantly reduce noise pollution and emissions while making rail passenger transport cleaner and more attractive. Operators and passengers will also benefit from a battery technology that eliminates the need to change trains when bridging non-electrified track sections.
