High-Performance Battery Systems for Rail

BorgWarner Akasol AG is a leading German developer and manufacturer of high-performance and high-energy lithium-ion battery systems for e-mobility applications as well as turnkey solutions. With more than 30 years of experience BorgWarner Akasol AG provides the technically most mature and foremost technologies for traction battery systems in buses, commercial vehicles, rail and industrial vehicles, as well as in ships and boats – from prototype to serial production.

Battery Solutions for Zero Emission Rail Transport

With the advent of e-mobility, the automotive industry is rapidly expanding its use of electric and hybrid electric engines. This development is now also transforming rail transport. As the market leader, BorgWarner Akasol AG provides rail battery solutions that offer superior performance, especially for trams and regional trains that are operated without overhead power cables.

BorgWarner Akasol AG’s AKASystem is a liquid-cooled, lithium-ion system. It’s freely scalable, can operate 24 hours a day, and offers reliability and safety for many years, even with extreme variations in temperature. Leading rail technology companies using traction battery arrangements already rely on AKASYSTEM, valuing its impressive track record in rail applications around the world.

BorgWarner Akasol AG Product Portfolio


Ultra High Performance Technology for Ultra High Energy Applications


The ultra high-energy battery system AKASystem CYC uses the new cylindrical-cell battery modules with very high energy density. It’s robust and scalable, and acquisition costs per kWh are comparatively low. In comparison to what current technology permits, this new technology will allow electric vehicles to increase their range by more than 60 percent. This system is developed for long distance traffic, e.g. buses using overnight charging facilities, intercity coaches and trucks.

Serial Technology for Various Applications


The latest AKASystem OEM lithium-ion battery system proves: powerful, specifically adapted lithium-ion battery systems for commercial vehicles can be both high-quality and affordable at the same time. BorgWarner Akasol AG is the first battery manufacturer in the world to offer a system that is compatible with the standardised PHEV modules of all major producers. This means that even commercial vehicles for series production are ideally equipped for their demanding tasks and, at the same time, remain flexible should the module supplier change at any point.

Ultra High Power Technology for Heavy Duty Applications


Hybrid and electric vehicles benefit from a liquid-cooled and freely scalable system that not only fulfils the highest safety standards, but also currently belongs to one of the most powerful battery solutions in the world. Robust, maintenance-free and fast-charging AKASystem AKM is ideal for use in commercial hybrid and electric vehicles with very high requirements when it comes to cycle life, performance and high system voltage.

The Flexible 48V Solution


The AKARack is revolutionary due to its characteristics – it offers very high energy and power density in combination with its flexible scalability. Thus, it is the ideal solution for applications in a power range from 5 kW to approx. 50 kW. With 6.6 kWh to 40 kWh in stored energy, it is outstanding for use in industrial and construction machinery, such as small excavators or front loaders, as well as in the 48V on-board power supply system in commercial vehicles, and even for small boats. IIf output of more than 50kW or even more energy is required, the 48V systems can also be operated as a AKASystem AKR PRC in parallel. The AKARack is extremely robust and due to its compact design in 19-inch format (590mm x 448mm x 135mm) very easy to integrate into a wide variety of vehicles.
