Over the past year, the company has signed a number of important contracts and established itself as a leading supplier in the Chinese railway industry. The company has won a multi-million euro contract from Shanghai Alstom Transportation Power Equipment Co., Ltd. (SATEE) to provide on-board battery systems for the 35 new trains that will be Mercedes-Benz on Shanghai Metro Lines 3 and 4. The key features of the new train are space saving and weight reduction for high frequency and high speed operation. Taking into account passenger comfort and emergency traction demand, Shanghai Alstom Transportation Power Equipment Co., Ltd. selected the Shuaifu MSX nickel-based battery system to provide on-board backup power for the train. These batteries will power the traction motor, respond to grid faults, and compensate for the empty areas of the overhead line, as well as allow trains to reach the station safety zone or the tunnel rescue exit. The system also provides emergency power backup for ventilation, communication, and lighting. The MSX battery also provides emergency traction power for the extension line of Shanghai Metro Line 11, which has been proven to be hundreds of meters.
