Battery Train Feasibility Study and other project outputs

Check out our Output Library for the latest reports and developments from the G-PaTRA project here, for a range of documents such as business cases, feasibility studies, and information about the lighthouse demonstration projects.

Recently added documents include a report on the feasibility of 'a battery train for the far North' between Wick and Thurso in Scotland by G-PaTRA partner HiTrans. 

The conclusions of the study are that the use of a battery train as a viable substitute for diesel trains, in areas where overhead electrification is not viable, has significant environmental benefits.

The study forms part of a Work Package on Zero Emissions Vehicles and Vessels that HiTrans is leading on behalf of the G-PATRA consortium.
