Ireland’s Train Network Will Be Boosted With Battery Powered Trains




Ireland, which is currently lacking in Train Network, would be a global leader of battery powered trains in future. National carrier, Iarnród Éireann, has requested a proposal last week to buy new 600 trains by 2040. Currently, Ireland has 629 trains in its fleet and all of these trains are run by overhead electric wire system. Half of the new trains could run on electricity and the remaining half will be powered with batteries. This would tremendously change the electric and diesel network into battery solutions network.

The order of new battery and electricity operated trains is unprecedented at the global level. But the country’s train network is much behind the time compared to other European countries. Only the DART area in Ireland has full overhead electric wire network which labors only capital area. DART holds only 144 trains out of 629 trains that run across the country. To expand the electric network across the country, the government of Ireland will invest 2 billion Euros.

It depends upon the government that in how much time, overhead electric wire network will expand in the country. But out of new 600 trains, 300 trains will be battery operated. The battery operated trains need overhead electric wire supply only to charge the batteries, and they can also run on the tracks on the battery power where the overhead electric wire network is unavailable. It would be helpful to reach the train network where electric wires are hard to install in the country. Since Ireland doesn’t have a good reputation as a train innovator, the new trains would definitely improve the rank of the country.
