FORSEE POWER WILL EQUIP THE KIEPE ELECTRIC POWERTRAINS OF VAN HOOL’S 100% FAST-CHARGING BATTERY BUSES
European equipment manufacturers have been selected by Île-de-France Mobilités for their innovative solution dedicated to zero-emission public transport for two bus lines in the Paris region.
Forsee Power, the expert in smart battery systems and European leader in batteries for electric buses, announces that it will equip German electrical systems supplier Kiepe Electric with its battery system on board a new Van Hool bi-articulated bus with a high level of service (BHLS) benefiting from an Alstom SRS conductive ground-based static fast charging system, in Île-de-France region in France.
The transport solution, chosen by Île-de-France Mobilités, the transport authority for the Ile-de-France region, is intended for two bus lines with dedicated lanes, T Zen 4 and T Zen 5.
A unique fast-charging solution with FORSEE PULSE 15 high-power battery systems
Forsee Power’s high-power batteries composed of LTO lithium-ion cells have been sized into a complete system adapted to very high-power charging needs with a long lifespan. Each bus will be equipped with a FORSEE PULSE 15 battery system consisting of eleven parallel battery packs. The high-power battery system will charge in a few minutes only, allowing the bus to operate 24/7 in full autonomy, 365 days a year.
Forsee Power, the leader in battery systems for electric buses in Europe
This contract with electric traction and auxiliary systems supplier Kiepe Electric expands Forsee Power’s activities in the bus market in Europe, contributing to the decarbonisation of urban transport through sustainable battery systems, designed for efficient and safe zero-emissions operations.
Forsee Power batteries are manufactured in Chasseneuil-du-Poitou in France, where the Group benefits from an installed capacity of 1 GWh, scalable to meet the growing demand for electromobility in Europe.
