When it comes to integrating electric drives to vehicles with conventional contactor controllers or modern three-phase drive technology, Vossloh Kiepe is an industry expert.
Buses worldwide are fitted with traction and control technology from Vossloh Kiepe, including battery buses, hybrid buses, fuel cell buses and trolley buses. Buses with this traction technology from Düsseldorf operate throughout the world—from Solingen to Lausanne and from Modena to Vancouver and Quito.
Besides the traction equipment, Vossloh Kiepe supplies the components for the on-board power supply and the air conditioning of the vehicles. Vossloh Kiepe designs and manufactures all these components in house and guarantees high quality.
The vehicles are growing in length. The world’s first double-articulated trolleybuses now operate in Geneva. To be able to power these heavy and rail-like vehicles safely and all year round, Vossloh Kiepe has developed a new dual-axle drive. Modern control technology makes it possible to position the two drive axles in different sections of the vehicle and hence without excessive burden on the articulation system.
