Skeleton Technologies ultracapacitor rail applications

catenary-free operation

High performance operation with an integrated compact design

Benefits of our solution

  • Fastest-possible implementation – no catenary-related constructions
  • Increased energy efficiency – energy regeneration when braking
  • Compact design of the onboard energy storage system
  • Reduced peak load demand from grid when accelerating
  • Reduced public grid connection costs

Challenge

Improving efficiency with a catenary-free onboard energy storage

  • Key Challenges
  • Catenary not entirely available for the planned route due to:
    • Limitations regarding preservation orders in certain city quarters
    • New combination of existing lines to increase public transport availability
  • known consequences
  • Development and expansion of public transport limited
  • Expensive and tedious installations of catenary and grid connection points

solution

High performance operation with an integrated compact design

  • what we offer
  • Onboard energy storage, providing energy in track sections without catenary
  • ADVANTAGES OF OUR PRODUCT
  • 100% reliable energy storage with zero maintenance
  • Over 1 million cycles & longer calendar life: 15 to 20 years
  • -40°C to +65°C operating temperature range
  • Advantages over Li-ion battery solutions:
    • Considerably smaller & cheaper than batteries
    • Li-ion battery needs to be oversized to cater for peak loads
    • Higher safety – no smoke, fire or flame
    • Ultracapacitors do not leak or contain acid or lead

100% reliable energy storage& lower costs
