ABB officially opened its new plant for energy storage systems for mobility applications in Baden, Switzerland. The energy storage systems will be used in railways, e-buses or trolleybuses and e-trucks. The facility represents an important investment in Switzerland as a production location and provides added value for applications at home and abroad.
ABB has already received orders for energy storage systems from several vehicle manufacturers from different countries. Among other applications, they will be used in new trolleybuses in the Swiss cities of Zürich, Lausanne and Fribourg.
“Our production facility for energy storage systems here in Baden only reinforces our technology and market leadership in the field of sustainable mobility. We have been making advances here with our solutions for over 100 years. This enables us to supply the entire power train including energy storage solutions for rail, e-bus, trolleybus and e-truck applications from a single source,” said Robert Itschner, CEO of ABB Switzerland and Local Business Manager of the Motion business.
