Electric BusesWhen it comes to integrating electric drives to vehicles with conventional contactor controllers or modern three-phase drive technology, Vossloh Kiepe as industry specialist has what it takes.
Trolleybuses worldwide are fitted with traction and control technology from Vossloh Kiepe. 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 itself and thus guarantees their well-known high quality.
The vehicles are growing in length. The world’s first double-articulated trolleybuses now drive 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.
Vossloh Kiepe is one of the world's leading specialists in the field of complete equipment for trolleybuses.
Electrical traction systems from Vossloh Kiepe for zero emission urban traffic offer highest reliability and make a considerable contribution to an environmental friendly public transport. For more than 60 years we are developing and improving zero emission and low-noise traction technology.
Barely any emissions, zero noise: when Vossloh Kiepe's hybrid-propelled bus approaches a stop or traffic lights, there is nothing to smell or hear. And thanks to smart energy management, the vehicles consume much less fuel. So it's not surprising that these double-articulated buses with their innovative propulsion system are attracting attention worldwide.
