In many cities and agglomerations, tramways and Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) are the most popular means of transportation. ABB’s traction systems for light rail vehicles supports the construction of clean ands safe public transportation in cities.
ABB provides complete high-efficient and reliable solutions to power a wide application range of Light Rail Vehicles and related vehicle concepts (e.g. tramways, light-metros, streetcars, trolleybus, and monorails). ABB has sold more than 1000 compact converters of the type BORDLINE CC400 DC for various types of Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) including monorails, which are field proven and in successful operation in many cities across the globe.
The highly integrated traction converters are robust, compact and light and suitable for roof, under-floor and machine room mounting (monorail). The modular platform concept supports optimized life cycle cost and high availability of spare parts.
