ABB Powertrain for e-mobility

Clean transportation has a critical role in the fight against climate change, because fossil-fuel-powered motor vehicles, trains and planes account for approximately one-quarter of the world’s energy consumption – and about the same proportion of global carbon-dioxide emissions. These emissions are harmful for both environment and for human health.

ABB has been innovating clean-transportation solutions since the late 19th century, developing electric-train technologies. Continuing as innovator and provider of a wide range of products and solutions in sustainable electric mobility, ABB’s product portfolio includes charging technologies for electric cars, buses and trucks, as well as solutions for the electrification of busses, trucks, working machines, ships and railways.

ABB offers complete electric drivelines for heavy working machinery - for example in mining, construction and material handling - optimized for each machine's actual working cycle. Drivelines are designed for reliability and energy efficiency, reducing total cost of ownership while supporting productivity. 

Key features:

  • Optimized driveline solutions for your application
  • Rugged design with high vibration and shock tolerance
  • Coolant temperature, -40°C to +65°C
  • Ambient temperature, -40°C to +85°C
  • IP rating designed for demanding working machine application
  • Extensive manufacturing and service footprint ensures production capacity as well as local support

With ABB's e-mobility drivetrain it is easy build small vessels like tugs and tourist ferries, as the mobile drive and traction motor are designed to be compact and work in harsh conditions. As such they don't need electrical rooms or cabinets but can be installed in small spaces like in catamaran fins or on bulkheads.

The operation profile of these ships also provides charging opportunities, which makes fully electric ships viable solutions even with current battery technology. This kind of vessels also commonly operate in areas where emmissions and noise brings challenges i.e. near cities or nature reserves.
