RailGEL Ultra Batteries

Robust power solutions designed to meet the challenges of high temperature and vibration in railway rolling stock, on-board and trackside applications.

Battery Energy has been supplying proven and reliable battery storage systems on and off grid for 30 years.

Battery Energy’s Thick Plate Advanced Carbon Technology is industry leading and will continue to be installed in high temperature and cycling applications with Australia’s most innovative companies.

In developing our technology in conjunction with the CSIRO, there was a strong focus on delivering a product with superior life performances and also able to withstand abusive conditions such as high vibration and variable charging characteristic, which can frequently leave the batteries in a semi-dischargedstate.

The result is a product with unique chemical and molecular characteristics which, along with advanced production methods differentiate it from other GEL batteries in the marketplace. Our RailGEL batteries have been specifically protected against high vibration environments and known to be resistant to pasteshedding.

For the highest level of reliability Battery Energy has the capability to design and customise products to meet increasing demands in the supply of Energy Storage for Solar, Communications, Rail, Oil & Gas, Power Generation & Transmission, UPS and Mining.
