Rail vehicles

Technology which is already standard in buses is now used in the railway sector, with the main focus on hybrid drives. Here too, electrical drive systems by KIRSCH are the best choice you can make.

In 2006 KIRSCH supplied the prototype for a hybrid shunting locomotive with speeds of up to 60 km/h. A 200 kW diesel-electric drive system with a PME generator is used either for the sole direct electricity supply or in combined operation with the battery blocks. The complete unit is supplied on a base frame ready for final installation. It only has to be mounted in the locomotive.
