PRIMOVE seminar at Nordic Rail in Sweden

Every two years, the Scandinavian transport industry comes together at Nordic Rail, the region’s largest meeting place for transport and infrastructure. Sustainable transport, technological development and safety issues were the main topic at this year’s event which took place from October 10-12, 2017 in Jönköping, Sweden.

Modern transport solutions and more sustainable modes of transport have been getting more and more important throughout the previous episodes of the event. Not only at the exhibition floor itself, but also during the many seminars that were being held alongside the show. Naturally, Scandinavia’s first inductively charged bus line was a topic that needed to be discussed here, too. Peter Ostman, Sales Manager Nordics at PRIMOVE, lead a seminar that presented the company’s inductive charging solution for e-buses in general and the e-bus project in the Swedish Town of Södertälje in particular. The municipality in the Stockholm area does have an electrified bus line since February this year. The electric hybrid bus by commercial vehicle manufacturer Scania had been equipped with the PRIMOVE inductive charging system for e-buses. One PRIMOVE charging station at the end stop is enough to supply the bus with sufficient energy to serve the 10 km-long route. The presentation was followed by a lively discussion about the technology and how to best incorporate it in further cities.
