Harry Lilja, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Powernet Oy, commented:

“We see this co-operation as a great way for Powernet to gain access to markets where we could not go alone. We are sure that our rail power and battery management solutions are very well positioned to gain a good foothold in the geographical areas Amaronia operates.”

Samuel Krüger, CEO of Amaronia, said:

“After evaluating the Powernet solutions, we see a big opportunity in many of the geographies, and especially in the rolling stock segment. Many train operators and train manufacturers are now understanding the importance of having intelligent battery management solutions.”

Many of the Powernet solutions bring new features, as remote diagnostics and State of Health to battery management. Both Powernet and Amaronia think that when customers know more about their batteries and charging mechanisms, this will decrease the overall cost and maintenance need. The Powernet solutions fit very well into the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) concept, which means that they can all be monitored and supervised remotely. This means intelligent battery charging, data logging and communication is here today!
