ELECTRIFIED: RAIL TRANSPORT WITH SUSTAINABLE PERFORMANCE

Sustainable transport concepts are needed. Focus is especially on the rail sector because railways, tramways, light rail systems and metro systems contribute substantially to environmentally friendly mobility.

Being a medium-sized enterprise, we stand for reliability, sustainability and innovation. Therefore, we want to continue to set standards for economic, environmentally-friendly and customer-specific electrical equipment for rail systems.

Ulrich Lauel – Manager, Rail Systems

Do you want sustainable and economic operation of your rail vehicle fleet? It is possible! Kiepe Electric’s thorough know-how in the field of system integration is a good basis. We can harmonise rail system components and rail systems optimally to one another so that the total public transport performance is reliable, safe, low-energy and comfortable. Our life cycle management contributes to reducing the operating costs and ensures that this state will be more or less permanent.

Kiepe Electric’s products are future-proof because we consequently keep on developing our systems and products. We develop both big R&D projects like hybridization of rail transport and our electrical systems, components, traction equipment, on-board converters and services. Depending on the customer’s wishes, the vehicle equipment is integrated into platforms or tailor-made to the customer’s systems. The equipment is delivered to the customer from a single source.

Today Kiepe Electric moves rail vehicles in many cities around the world, e.g. Berlin, Paris, London, Vienna, Krakow and Taipeh.
