Overview

Today, we are able to draw on our extensive practical knowledge and engineering knowhow to develop state-of-the-art battery technology. Our new generation of batteries meets the reliability, safety and performance challenges thrown up by the complex, contemporary railway landscape.

For onboard and trackside installations

Saft works with leading train manufacturers and railway operators across multiple railway projects including metros, light rail, tramways and tram-trains, electric and diesel locomotives and high-speed trains. Our on-board and trackside nickel-based and lithium-ion battery solutions cover all the main applications such as auxiliary backup, engine starting, regenerative hybrid traction, trackside signaling and wayside energy storage.

Designed to provide high performance, maximum reliability, long life and efficient operation over a wide temperature range, our batteries also offer safety throughout the installation life-cycle and are low maintenance. This focus on long service life, reduced maintenance and service needs significantly reduces the TCO (total cost of ownership).

Our service to customers is comprehensive and ranges from supplying individual batteries to operating as a global supplier of fully-integrated, turnkey battery systems for both new-build and upgrade projects, and providing through-life service support.
