Electric vehicles for rail track operations
Alkè, a company specializing in the design, construction and sale of fully electric vehicles, has studied and developed over the years a number of specific vehicles for use in railway stations.
Alkè professional electric vehicles are widely used in carrying out the main tasks of routine railway maintenance both on the platforms and in logistical points connected by rail, and in all preventive and reactive operations on the railwayss. Our electric vehicles are also widely used in all routine or emergency operations on the railways. It is possible to tailor and equip Alkè ATXs with double wheels, as our range includes one series of wheels for road use and another series of special rail wheels specially adapted and customised for rail movement. Electric rail vehicles are the ideal tool for transporting or towing heavy loads on rails.
Electric vehicles within stations
Our zero emission vehicles are used within stations for operations such as maintenance, handling of goods and collection of waste. But also for transporting luggage and the distribution of goods in the shops of large stations.
They are also widely used as a service vehicle for locomotives or specific areas for train maintenance.
Thanks to their small size, Alke' electric vehicles are perfect to be working on platforms, allowing the operator to move about easily, while doing their job, without any manoeuvring problems.
Why should you choose an Alke electric vehicle for railway?
Intensive research and development carried out by our team guarantees the best combination of efficiency and effectiveness. All Alkè electric vehicles can be customized according to the needs of the customer and equipped with different cabin accessories.
Our professional vehicles for railway achieve a chassis load capacity of 1500 kg and a negotiable slope of 20%.
The mechanics of military origin is extremely robust: they are designed for very high workloads. The chassis undergoes a cataphoresis and powder coating anti-corrosion treatment. This makes them particularly suitable for the main tasks within train stations.
The electric AC motor ensures extremely high performance and, at the same time, energy saving, helping to reduce consumption and consequently costs (€ 2.00 per charge). Thanks to the energy recovery system under braking, not only a reduction in costs is ensured but also high safety standards and perfect descent manoeuvrability. All Alke green vehicles have a high charge autonomy in ECO mode with the correct driving style and energy saver. The full charging time is about 8 hours, with on board battery charger and charging LEDs. The vehicle can be recharged via a 230V 16A 50Hz power socket (IEC 60309 16A 2P + E). The high frequency charger allows for better charging, thereby extending the useful life of the batteries.
Due to their technical and handling characteristics, Alke electric vehicles are the best solution on the market in terms of zero-emission railway station vehicles.
