Battery Technology – the Drive Power of the Future in Track Construction

Battery-based electric drives are not only an environmentally friendly alternative but bring about major advances in ergonomics and work quality.

In the era of climate change the traditional combustion engines will sooner or later need to be a thing of the past in order to achieve the ambitious targets for climate protection. Like the automotive sector, where the race in the development towards purely electric or hybrid drives is gathering ever more pace, the railway construction sector is working on new, economically efficient and zero-emission drive technologies. This article shows how battery technology already plays an important role in hand-guided track construction machines and looks at their future potential.


  • Why battery power?
  • The benefits of battery technology
    • Sustainable track maintenance
    • Modular design – one battery for all models
    • Less weight – improved ergonomics and safety
    • Used everywhere – quiet and clean
    • Consistent power supply – at least for the duration of one shift
  • The question of cost – why battery technology pays off
  • Even more output at lower machine weight
  • How do you get the battery to the track?
  • Hybrid technology as an alternative to the battery
  • Conclusion


Since 1901 ROBEL has developed, manufactured and supplied track construction machines with a claim for safety and economic efficiency. This drives around 500 employees at the ROBEL premises in Freilassing, Germany, to create powerful machines and systems and deliver good service for the construction and maintenance of railway infrastructure systems all over the world.
