Accelerate adoption of sustainable transport

Fossil-fuel-powered motor vehicles, trains and planes, account for about a quarter of the world’s energy consumption – and about the same proportion of global carbon-dioxide emissions.

Our support for electric vehicles is well known. We have a long tradition of developing and delivering the innovations that help make e-mobility and power transmission more efficient, practical and sustainable. We’ve built:

  • Charging systems into bus stops

  • Generators for diesel trains

  • Azipod propellers that can cut a ship’s fuel consumption by 10%

  • Communication systems covering rail networks, shunting yards and cargo docks, or entire cities

  • «…Our leading integrated and collaborative digital solutions build on our deep domain expertise across marine, railways and electric vehicle charging.…»
