Transportation

Saft batteries are found in nearly every mode of transport, including rail and mass transit, commercial marine, racing and industrial vehicles.

With more than 60 years' experience, we make hugely-reliable, safe batteries that are compliant with all the relevant environmental standards.

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.
