Sunfire-Remote is more persistant than a flagman

The German railway company Deutsche Bahn relies on Sunfire-Remote. Since 2017, our power generators supply systems for traffic lights and barriers at level crossings. They take over the hard job that used to be done by workers. Nowadays, the level crossings can be monitored remotely.

Challenge

  • Downtime may endanger life
  • Technical solution needs to be as reliable as manpower


Customer

Deutsche Bahn AG

Fuel cell power in winter, solar energy in summer

Deutsche Bahn benefits from the flexible deployment options of our power generators. Utilizing the renewable sources available, our customer combines Sunfire-Remote with photovoltaic systems. While solar energy is sufficient to provide the necessary energy in summer, fuel cells take over in the dark winter months.
