It's no surprise that our batteries are used in three-quarters of all metro systems, more than 100 rail networks and in Formula One race cars.
Saft works with leading transport operators around the world including Rolls-Royce, Bombardier and CRRC, to ensure they can provide a safe, reliable service and meet increasingly stringent emissions targets. We have been able to develop cutting-edge solutions by drawing on our work in the defense sector with very high-power capacity cells to deliver customized solutions wherever they are needed.
Our high-performance batteries are increasingly being incorporated into the design of hybrid and fully-electric marine vessels, while our Ion’Drive® Motive 24 V battery range brings high performance to hybrid vehicles such as mining and farm trucks. Our technology is also used in electrified ground-support equipment in airports and seaports as part of efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, fuel consumption and noise.
High-performance and low-maintenance – our rail batteries need no maintenance for 5-10 years – our long-life batteries can operate at temperatures as low as -50°C, and boast a low total cost of ownership.
