2012-04-10 - ABB developed a complete retrofit on motors to make them work on a lower voltage system, resulting in a considerable saving of time and money.
This solution means that AAR bus+bahn did not need to purchase new motors. The project’s slogan is “reuse everything”, and even the old rotors are being refurbished for use by another operator. The project is a good example of a successful win-win situation for both ABB and our customers.
