Global rail infrastructure specialist Pandrol has launched E+, a new range of sustainable, resilient systems and battery-powered tools.
The E+ products represent a “breakthrough in energy-efficient, environmentally friendly track construction and maintenance,” Pandrol reported.
Each one has been designed to significantly cut carbon emissions without compromising power, the company said. In addition, a focus on reducing noise and eliminating dangerous fumes will contribute to reduced environmental impact, particularly in urban and under-tunnel areas, it noted.
E+ products launched to date include a Battery Grinder, Battery-Operated Weld Shear, CD100, QTrack, Under-ballast Mat and Under-sleeper Pad.
“The introduction of the E+ range is a fantastic step for us to unify the great work being done to optimize battery power and sustainable materials across Pandrol’s resilient systems, tools and track equipment,” Pandrol CEO Eran Gartner said. “Our focus on reduced emissions and improved working conditions on track will continue as we work towards becoming a cleaner, greener company. Beyond product innovation, we are taking a holistic approach to improve sustainability across the whole of our business, from the energy we use in our factories, to our supply chain and equipment.”
