Industrial and other vehicles
Industrial and refuse trucks / Automated Guided Vehicles / Electric boats / Tractors for airport and industrial applications
Electric-propelled vehicles for goods or people need on board batteries.
The desire for clean, quiet, zero-emission transport in environmentally sensitive areas is driving the development of electric traction and hybrid traction vehicles.
Saft batteries provide a cost-effective, compact source of power for full electric-drive, hybrid-drive and ancillary operations on vehicles including Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) in industry and buildings, delivery vehicles, refuse trucks, airport luggage tractors, hospital carts and electric boats.
Saft has developed a range of rechargeable nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) and lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries and fully integrated battery systems for these applications.
Meeting current demands
Electric-propelled vehicles have special demands, for which Saft batteries offer a number of important advantages:
high power and high energy
fast recharging capability to take advantage of ‘opportunity charging’
compact installation footprint and low weight
low-maintenance or maintenance-free design
robust construction to withstand frequent shock and vibration loadings.
